residente qwatz – Gennaio 2014; Marzo 2014; Maggio 2014; Giugno 2014.

Domenica 25 maggio E.U.R.OWalk. Utopia vs Utopia Attraversando l’Eur Ore 10 – Metro Magliana.

Durante il periodo di residenza, Maj Hasager porterà avanti le ricerche necessarie allo sviluppo del progetto “We will meet in the blind spot”: la ricerca si focalizza sulle invisibili storie ricavate interrogando il punto di vista degli immigrati e di esponenti del tessuto sociale dei quartieri EUR e Laurentino 38, per mappare – attraverso interviste mirate – la complessità e la diversità della zona. La storia di questa area della città sarà studiata prendendo in considerazione il punto di vista utopico ipotizzato dall’architettura razionalista, per arrivare al suo fallimento.

In linea con le sue precedenti ricerche sulla memoria e sull’identità in rapporto alle circostanze socio-politiche, l’artista analizzerà la relazione tra le comunità di immigrati e la città, paragonando l’immagine dei migranti con la realtà attuale.

 

Maj Hasager ha esposto il suo lavoro internazionalmente, in gallerie e spazi pubblici tra cui Future Movements Liverpool Biennial (2010), Between Here and Somewhere Else, al-Hoash, al-Kahf gallery e Sakakini Cultural Centre, Jerusalem, Bethlehem & Ramallah (2010) The Other Shadow of the City, al-Hoash, Jerusalem (2009); Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art (2009), Copenhagen; A farewell to postcolonialism – The Third Guangzhou Triennial, China (2008; A Public Affair – Gallery 21, Malmö (2008; LOOP Film festival, Barcelona (2008; EMERGED Space, Glasgow (2007); KargArt festival in Istanbul (2007). Immagine in allegato: Maj Hasager: Work in progress – storyboard for the montage film ”We will meet in the blind spot – the archive” Consisting of archival material from the EUR area (1936-1960), 2013-2014.

resident at qwatz – January 2014; March 2014; May 2014; June 2014.

Sunday 25 May E.U.R.OWalk. Utopia vs Utopia Ore 10 – Metro Magliana.

During the residency program, Maj Hasager will conduct further research for her project “We will meet in the blind spot”, focussing on the invisible stories from migrant perspectives and on the urban and social fabric in the EUR district and Laurentino 38 area – mapping the complexity and diversity of this area through interviews. The history of the areas will be explored in particular by looking at the utopian vision of the city planning from a rationalist architectural point of view, and its failure.

Continuing her previous research on memory and identity connected to socio-political issues, the artist will explore how migrant communities are related to the city, comparing the image of the migrant to the current reality.

 

Maj Hasager has exhibited her work internationally both in galleries and in the public realm including Future Movements Liverpool Biennial (2010), Between Here and Somewhere Else, al-Hoash, al-Kahf gallery and Sakakini Cultural Centre, Jerusalem, Bethlehem & Ramallah (2010) The Other Shadow of the City, al-Hoash, Jerusalem (2009); Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art (2009), Copenhagen; A farewell to postcolonialism – The Third Guangzhou Triennial, China (2008; A Public Affair – Gallery 21, Malmö (2008; LOOP Film festival, Barcelona (2008; EMERGED Space, Glasgow (2007); KargArt festival in Istanbul (2007). In attachment: Maj Hasager: Work in progress – storyboard for the montage film ”We will meet in the blind spot – the archive” Consisting of archival material from the EUR area (1936-1960), 2013-2014.
