10 JOURNEYS TO A PLACE WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS
Maike Lond Malmborg’ s lecture-performance “10 journeys to a place where nothing happens” is a result of a highly subjective research on possible outcomes of the recent political trend, suggesting a merging process of the cultural and private sectors financial interests. The project started with outlining a dream scenario in which Maike would establish a long lasting relation with a patronage – enter the era of romanticism – and thereby break her current dependence on trends, curators, art institutions, public funds and the politics of Ministry of Culture. Throughout a 18 month period Maike Lond Malmborg looked at different prospects of fulfilling her dream, ranging from encounters with possible patrons and sponsors to an actual employer/ employee relationship as well as being a member of a discussions panel on Estonian national TV.
Performance is part of the Contemporary Estonian programme in Riga “LATEST, that is part of the centenary celebration programmes of Latvia and Estonia.
