När det var traktorkonsert i Brösarp / When a tractor concert was held in Brösarp (2003)
During a few days in the early summer of 2002 the composer Sven-Åke Johansson drove around the countryside near Brösarp in southern Sweden listening to tractors from the 50’s and 60’s. On a beautiful July evening, his piece Concert for 12 tractors was performed before an enthusiastic audience of well over a thousand. Sven-Åke Johansson was born in Sweden, but has been working as a composer, musician and artist in Berlin since the 60’s. Documentary filmmakers Ebbe Gilbe (1940-2008) and Thomas Frantzén followed Sven-Åke and the Tractorists throughout the project. The film When a tractor concert was held in Brösarp premiered in 2003 and has been aired on Swedish TV.Screening: 29 April, 15:00, Inkonst, The Club
Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present - a documentary film by Tyler Hubby
Tony Conrad was one the great American artists of our time, yet to the world at large he remains criminally underappreciated. Since the early 1960s, Conrad's films and compositions have been the stuff of legend for artists and musicians everywhere. His vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has single-handedly created and influenced major film and compositional movements. Stockhausen, La Monte Young and The Velvet Underground are just some of the legendary names that cannot be disconnected from Conrad’s work. Completely in the Present mirrors Conrad’s own playfully radical approach to art making. The non-linear structure allows Conrad to wildly free associate his streams of consciousness, revealing an honest and humane way of navigating a remarkable, creative life.
