"Home Invasions: Artist/Anthropologist Collaborations in Sweden and Japan"

Saturday, March 24 - 10:00AM to 11:45AM
Bayview Room

This panel explores collaborations between artists and anthropologists investigating contemporary domestic spaces in Japan & Sweden. In "Unpacking the Flat Pack: Art, Ethnography & the BILLY Bookcase," John Freyer & Dr. Johan Lindquist present their findings from their field work in Swedish homes & observations made in in the flagship IKEA store at Kungens Kurva. In part two Dr. Inge Daniels & Susan Andrews discuss their co-curated exhibition, "At Home in Japan - Beyond the Minimal House," at the Geffrye Museum in London. The 2011 exhibition included the installation of a full size Japanese home, complete with hundreds of objects from their ethnographic research, and photographs of the intimate domestic spaces of their research subjects.
