|Melissa McCarthySharks, Death, Surfers
An Illustrated Companion
Steering her analysis from the newspaper obituary in and out of literature and past cinema, Melissa McCarthy investigates a fundamental aspect of the human condition: our state of being between life and death, always in precarious and watery balance. Sharks, Death, Surfers: An Illustrated Companion observes how sharks have been depicted over centuries and across cultures, then flips the lens (and dissects the cornea) to consider what sharks see when they look back.

Kollontai. A Play by Agneta Pleijel
Red Love: A Reader on Aleksandra Kollontai stems from a yearlong research by CuratorLab at Konstfack University together with Tensta konsthall, leading up to Dora García’s exhibition “Red Love” and its related public programing. A number of artists and thinkers revisit Kollontai’s ideas on the politics of love and their relation to current political, social and feminist struggles. The publication also includes the biographical play Kollontai from 1977 by distinguished Swedish writer Agneta Pleijel.
