Vision Forum node Ö – A Möbius Trip will participate at Normalcy Bar at Moderna Bar April 25, 2014.
In 2011, a group of artists embarked on a trip in the Stockholm archipelago in search of a lost island. According to marine archaeologist Atle Baekken, the existence of this island had been kept alive in myth and song within the old villages of the archipelago. However, the knowledge about it has been lost as the archipelago has now been transformed from a place of subsistence (fishing, farming, etc.) to a gigantic touristic resort attracting thousands of sailors and wealthy owners of summer homes. In an attempt to rediscover the island, 8 artists set out on an expedition to follow the traces of this island. On this trip, one hundred guests were invited to testify to the discovery of this island.
The Ö project was initated in 2011 by Isabel Löfgren and Per Hüttner within the framework of Vision Forum. Participating artists are: Camila Sposati, Andrea Hvistendahl & Atle Baekken, Marcia Moraes & Egill Saebjornesson, Valerio del Baglivo, Cecilia Ahlqvist, Samon Takahashi, Lillevän Pobjoy, Jean-Louis Huhta, Isabel Löfgren and Per Hüttner.
