Vision Forum is a mobile laboratory, an open community and a platform for developing new forms and contexts to produce and present art. We work in an expanded art field and most projects involve multiple producers, international networks and interdisciplinary collaborations. The presented work often makes use of new technologies, experimental expressions and moves across multiple venues.
We are a non-profit organisation and the focus lies on moving across both geographical, disciplinary and borders and we have carried out projects on all the continents of the world with our partner organisations. We organise experimental seminars, exhibitions, performances and events often in collaboration with practitioners in other artistic fields as well as researchers in the sciences and humanities. The projects often leads to the creation of publications.
Since its inception in 2008, Vision Forum has focused on higher education. But in recent times, more attention has been given to develop new pedagogical strategies. These include ongoing projects like Morgondagens Konstpublik where we focus on the young and Riding the donkey backwards where we work with refugees across Europe.
We work towards having a totally horizontal organisation where the creators and researchers together develop the program of the organisation. Artist Per Hüttner is the director of the organisation since 2009. We have collaborated with such distinguished people as Theodore Zeldin and Nobel laureate Roald Hoffman. We currently collaborate with many different practitioners: curators Sara Giannini, Susanne Ewerlöf; the collective Wooloo, dancer Carima Neusser; researchers Stephen Whitmarsh, Robert Oostenveld; pedagogues Anne Klontz, Cecilia Ahlqvist and musician Jean-Louis Huhta. You will find who participates by browsing our Current Projects and find out more about the new projects that we are developing with neuroscientists, migrants and lawyers.
The network is based in Sweden. Most of us who work with the projects are based in Europe and we often collaborate with institutions and creators in Asia, Australia, Africa and the Americas.
