The swing’s users must utilize the forces of gravity through coordinated pushings and pullings, until everyone moves into full swing together. In this playful moment, the potential energy of group movement is released. Perhaps it is possible, then, to shift the impact of our collective action to achieve a different kind of global momentum, and utilize the act of swinging together as a means of social and political transformation. First installed at the Tate Modern Turbine Hall in 2017, various site-specific installations of the swing-set continue to be created on a great diversity of contexts, such as AlUla in Saudi Arabia, the DMZ area in South Korea and Vordingborg in Denmark. The color-scheme of the swings themselves represents the specific colors of the national currency of the country in which the swings are installed. Over time, the work will evolve as the orange support continues to grow and new swings are added into the wider world.

'What do you get when you put a Danish artist group together with oceanographers, material scientists, and marine biologists? The answer is an idea which might just change the way we imagine and design our environments in response to rising sea levels.
As warnings about the effects of global warming escalate, Superflex - an art group founded by Jakob Fenger, Bjørnstjerne Christiansen and Rasmus Nielsen in 1993 – have been working on a long term project to imagine a world where the original function and aesthetics of our carefully designed world may be lost to the tide.
Commissioned by TBA21-Academy, the project is called Deep Sea Minding and it considers whether it’s possible to design and create structures that could serve the needs and desires of both humans and marine life.
So in their headquarters in Copenhagen, the team at Superflex are mixing concrete and amino acids together to see whether they can create bricks to make houses and schools which can be occupied by humans first and then fish. They’re also preparing a prototype structure to be placed on the seabed to test the responses of fish to this new material.
Over the course of nine months Laura Hubber joins Rasmus Nielsen from Superflex for one leg of their epic journey –taking in California, Copenhagen and Jamaica - and meeting a Mermaid along the way. Presented by Laura Hubber and produced by Emma Kingsley and Ella-mai Robey for BBC World Service.

Dario Escobar new book 'Ensayos dispersos'
21st Feb - 16th May 2020
'The inaugural Triennial for Photography and New Media at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Norway will bring together recent work of 31 international artists. It will be the first major international presentation of its kind in Norway and will fill all three gallery spaces of the ground floor at the museum.
The inaugural edition foregrounds practices that acknowledge the fluctuating and networked condition of contemporary photography and society more generally, while also articulating a keen sensitivity towards the history of photography and art. Abstraction, digital and manual collage, new configurations of still life and the human body are key tendencies. The works on view are produced within the last three years and several are exhibited for the first time.
The first edition is titled New Visions, referring to the program for a New Vision developed by László Moholy-Nagy in the interwar period, and that greatly impacted experimental photography throughout the 20th-century.' - Heine Onstad Kunstsenter
