The newly founded artist collective Utopidepartment assumes in its first work, ‘Brakfesten’, the role of leading nature in the fight for the future of the planet. ‘Brakfesten’ is inspired by Olivier Messiaen’s piece ‘Quartet for the End of Time’, which was composed and premiered in a concentration camp in 1941. Just like Messiaen, who worked on the basis of imposed framework conditions, the Utopidepartment created ‘Brakfesten’ in the framework conditions provided by the pandemic.
‘Brakfesten’ is created to be experienced in front of a screen and has its digital premiere on Thursday, February 18th at 19.00 on www.utopidepartementet.se.
The premiere is followed by a panel discussion at 20.00 which will be streamed from IAC.
