Participation in the discussion is free, but if you wish to attend, you must sign up via Billetto. Last chance to book is April 21st. The event will be in English.

The idea of ‘A Third Field’ spotlights, on one hand, the importance of combining existing professional and institutional fields outside their established comfort zones and, on the other, the need to establish formats for development without knowing their specific destinations in advance.

The discussion will be based on the activities in a workshop involving an international group of artists, curators and technology developers. The workshop will take place immediately prior to the public discussion.

Lars Bang Larsen, Aslak Aamot Helm and a selection of participants from the workshop will take part in the discussion.

The project was initiated and organised by Diakron with the aim of establishing professional and strategic relationships across practices and organisations.

The work is continuous and took place previously at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. The next venue will be the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin.

Participants in the workshop (not all of who will be present at the public discussion): Jenna Sutela (Artist). Julia Kaganskiy (Curator and Cultural Producer). Kei Kreutler (Artist and CEO, Gnosis Guild). Martti Kalliala (Musician, Amnesia Scanner. Strategic Advisor, Nemesis). Mi You (Curator and Researcher, Dokumenta Institute). Gary Zhexi Zhang (Artist and Strategic Consultant). Amitai Romm (Artist, Diakron and Primer). Aslak Aamot Helm (Researcher, Diakron, Primer, Medicinsk Museion and The Serpentine Galleries).

The discussion is a collaboration with Art Hub. The workshop is a collaboration with Medicinsk Museion. The project is funded by the Bikuben Foundation.
