Fia Backstr?m
Presented as a part of SN?FRID #0: World Premiere.

The parameters of what defines a program and an audience are highlighted in Backstr?m's mode of operation, where the generative logic unfurls across a stretch of situations, encompassing activities and their documentation, environments, gatherings, performances, artworks by other artists, writing, prints, readings, audio recordings and ephemera. Through a development of format and display methodology, Backstr?m engages peers and visitors in her excavations of the shifting faces of ideology, politics, advertisement and propaganda.
