|CuratorLab 2017/18 (Eds.)Red Love: A Reader on Alexandra Kollontai
Kollontai. A Play by Agneta Pleijel
Red Love: A Reader on Aleksandra Kollontai stems from a yearlong research project 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.
From November 2017 to September 2019, res.o.nant, a conceptual light and sound installation by Mischa Kuball, reverberated throughout the basement of the Libeskind Building in the Jewish Museum Berlin.
This book comprises five thematic sections—Space of Experience, Void, Sound Space, Light, and Urban Space—through which twenty-two thinkers, artists, and writers have examined and interpreted Kuball’s work. Like the architecture of the Libeskind Building itself, res.o.nant also responds to the void, the absence of Jewish life in Europe after the Shoah.
