Andjeas Ejiksson

 

Andjeas Ejiksson’s current research project, ‘Television Without Frontiers’ at Valand Academy in Gothenburg centres upon the re-enactment of a trans-national collaborative broadcast event undertook by European TV networks in 1982. Re-enactment, as a procedure through which an event or activity may be studied and assessed, is a mechanism commonly employed by Ejiksson within his practice. The focus of the events he chooses allow him to further facilitate his interest in the discussion and debate surrounding the translation of historical moments and situations with regard to the possibilities of revolution and/or reform. Via performance and texts, stories are created and relayed in layer upon layer of events, real or fictional, aimed at the received notions of historical and public memory.
