Meet the Artists of To The Square 2: Nikolay Oleynikov and Khaled Jarrar

Thursday, 14 August, 6 pm, HIAP Suomenlinna Studios, Studio Johan Tobias

Getting the ball rolling “to the square”, join this small gathering with the first artists to arrive.

UPDATE: Due to the situation outlined here, for the moment the plan is for Khaled Jarrar to be present via videolink.

Nikolay Oleynikov (Moscow) will introduce his Radio Pravda project, a multi-channel nomadic broadcast for which he is open for proposals for broadcasting partners, interviewees, location-stops in Helsinki and even music. Khaled Jarrar (Ramallah) will reveal more details of his new participatory project On Power, Dis-/Obedience and War, which you can join as a volunteer on 26 August. This performative action questions the military regimentation of the body, mass obedience and programmed behaviour, while emphasising the responsibility of the individual, and the case for resistance and civil or military disobedience. A convivial conversation will follow, together with the curators of the project, the artists, the project team, volunteers and those simply curious…

Curated by Ivor Stodolsky and Marita MuukkonenTo the Square 2 is part of the Re-AlignedProject of Perpetuum Mobilε, commissioned by Checkpoint Helsinki as part of Helsinki Festival. The project is realised in collaboration with HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme (On the Move Programme).
