This announcement

Ersta Konsthall propose that Flaggfabrikken send this very announcement by e-flux on today’s date, March the 6th 2008 to announce this announcement.

This announcement is a special effect (and a cooperative project) exploring the limits and possibilities of fiction within institutional constructions. Ersta Konsthall has begun a nomadic and experimental trajectory in a so far unknown landscape. We are just not happy with the existing limits of exhibition production, display and distribution. In the context of Flaggfabrikken presenterer: we will try new means of developing these fields by invoking e-flux subscribers to participate in the survey of these new occurences of existence by reading this announcement.

The experience from Ersta Konsthall taking place in various locations, for example The Institute of Contemporary Art – Dunaújváros, Hungary and The Swedish National Museum, as well as cooperation with other institutions as Tensta Konsthall, Galleri60e and the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå has brought us to thinking about our practice as purely a question of constructed identity. Ersta Konsthall is merely what it is said to be and described as. This is a turning point into the future and a further step into an imaginary existence. The next thing will be in your mind only.

Subjects of trial and participating artists in this event will be: The present audience, The members of Flaggfabrikken: Hilde Jørgensen, Anne Szefer Karlsen, Kjetil Kausland, Olaf Knarvik, Åse Løvgren, Kjersti Solberg Monsen, Heidi Nikolaisen, Arne Skaug Olsen, Ulf Styren, Kristin Tårnesvik and Maya Økland.
