Time: 12–5 PM (with a talk by TQU founder Verena Spilker at 2 PM)
For Chapter 3 of Whose Museum x KRETS, the art collective has invited members of the Transnational Queer Underground (TQU) to program a series of activities. TQU is a young non-profit association that fosters queer art and activism both on- and offline. The TQU network of transnational queer artists and activists has been active since 2009, organising lectures, exhibitions, concerts, workshops and more. Their aim is to establish links beyond borders where people everywhere can have their voices heard, and to fight for the right for everyone to live the life they desire without facing discrimination. To open the chapter, TQU founder Verena Spilker will give a talk on the intersections of art, culture, and activism within queer communities. Read more under exhibitions.

On Saturday we welcome artist and musician Marja Ahti to perform at Whose Museum. We are looking forward to hearing her sound performance fill up the room and communicate with the works currently on exhibition. Space is very limited so please come early.
Marja Ahti is a Swedish-Finnish artist working with field recordings and other acoustic sound material combined with synthesizers and electronic feedback. Investigating the border where sounds start to mimic each other or communicate, she creates precise musical narratives with slowly mutating textures of detailed acoustic sound and intuitively tuned sustained tones with gentle microtonal beatings. She works with field recordings neither in the sense of the diaristic or documentaristic, nor the purely acousmatic, but rather starting out from in between these approaches – hovering between abstraction and the deeply familiar, moving into a realm of poetic metaphor where sounds are set in relation to each other, fleetingly mirroring and shadow-dancing.
Ahti has been a part of the Finnish experimental music scene for more than ten years in different constellations and is currently active in the duo Ahti & Ahti with her partner, and as member of the Himera collective. Her debut LP under her own name, Vegetal Negatives, was just released by Hallow Ground.

For Chapter 2 of Whose Museum’s year-long exhibition at KRETS, the art collective has invited Alanna Lynch and Maria Wæhrens, two artists working from different traditions but who have in common the method of gathering and combining materials into sprawling installations that implicate the feminist notion of taking up space. Here, together with the Whose Museum collection and work by Max Ockborn (from Chapter 1), our exhibition continues to grow as visitors also donate new items to the collection.

Consider for a moment that a museum is a living organism, their collections forming a body whose relationships compel them to move and to act. Who will they become?
In 2019, KRETS will be run by the art collective Whose Museum, who will present a year-long exhibition project. The gallery will become a shared setting: functioning as a diner-themed curiosity cabinet in which to meet the collection and reconsider the role of the museum as a safe and open meeting place for anyone wishing to be involved. Throughout the year, visitors will be invited to draw, taste, touch, smell, question, and donate to the collection.
The year will be divided into five chapters and each will build on the last. The cross-disciplinary program will consist of shifting exhibitions, performances, workshops, talks, and other forms of collaboration. The following artists will present new works in response to this setting: Patrick Cruz (CA/PH), Laura Hatfield (CA/SE), Alanna Lynch (CA/DE), Transnational Queer Underground and Tom Moore (UK/DE), Max Ockborn (SE), ieke Trinks (NL), Louise Waite (SE), Maria Wæhrens (DK), plus special guests. Whose Museum will also develop a podcast with musician John B McKenna, who will investigate the collection, researching and interviewing current and past collaborators. Launching the exhibition project, the first chapter will feature a transformed gallery and installation by Malmö-based artist Max Ockborn, produced in collaboration with Johannes Raoust and Laura Hatfield.
