Meet the Artists of To The Square 2

Getting the ball rolling “to the square”, join this small gathering with the first artists to arrive.

Nikolay Oleynikov (Moscow) will introduce his RADIO PRAVDA project, a multi-channel nomadic broadcast for which he is open to proposals for broadcasting partners, interviewees, location-stops in Helsinki and even music.

Khaled Jarrar (Ramallah) will reveal more details of his new participatory project “On Power, Dis-/Obedience and War”. Here you can learn more about volunteering for the performance on the 26th of August. This performative action sets out to question the military regimentation of the body, mass obedience and programmed behaviour, while emphasizing the responsibility of the individual, and the case for resistance and civil or military disobedience.

UPDATE: Jarrar will be present via videolink, unless he defeats the TRAVEL BAN put on him by the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet) and arrives in time:

A convivial conversation will follow, together with the curators of the project, the artists, the project team, volunteers and those simply curious…

Curated by Ivor Stodolsky and Marita Muukkonen, To the Square 2 is part of the Re-Aligned Project of Perpetuum Mobilε, commissioned by Checkpoint Helsinki as part of Helsingin juhlaviikot / Helsinki Festival. The project is realised in collaboration with HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme (On the Move Programme).
