UNFINISHED HISTORIES II: POLAK and ERIK STEINSKOG

John Coney Space Is the Place (1974). Still.

Second event in the “Unfinished Histories” is a conversation between the artists group POLAK and cultural researcher Erik Steinskog.

Taking as his starting point John Akomfrah’s film The Last Angel of History, Steinskog presents Afrofuturism and its relation to archive, history and temporality. The artists group POLAK, made up by the established authors Kristina Stoltz, Eva Tind, Ursula Andkjær Olsen, Katrine Grünfeld and Janne Breinholt Bak, present their road towards a feminist expedition to the North Pole in the summer of 2016, a project addressing issues of national identity and gender as well as stereotypical notions of the North Pole.
