To the Left of the Rising Sun  
Swedish Museum of Architecture, Stockholm
October – November 2007

Italian artist Francecso Jodice (1967) will visit Stockholm and the Architecture Museum during three weekends this autumn. We start Friday 19 October at 4pm and continue Saturday 20 th and Sunday 21st from 11am to 5pm. The same schedule will be repeated during the two following sessions; 9-11 November and 23-25 November.
       Trained as an architect and a founding member of the interdisciplinary collective Multiplicity, Francesco’s work focuses on people’s lives in large cities in the world. His photographs and films have been shown internationally. Citytellers, a film produced and screened during the Sao Paolo biennial 2006, tells the story about this mega city and its inhabitants from various perspectives. The film was also shown recently as part of the Global Cities exhibition at Tate Modern last summer.
       The purpose of Francesco’s visits to the Architecture Museum and for the workshops is to initiate research for a Citytellers film about Stockholm. With methods deployed by Multiplicity the idea is to, with the help of workshop participants, form an interdisciplinary work group. Much like in Sao Paolo, this group will work to shape the content for the film. Depending on experiences by the participants, the layout of the workshop is an ongoing process with strong influences by Francesco’s own tools and methods.
       Open for all museum visitors, during the workshop thematic discussions will be held in the auditorium at the Architecture museum each Sunday at 4pm.
       If you are interested in Stockholm city, in its history, architecture, social and/or political structure, or perhaps have an entirely different perspective on the city, you are welcome to join! The workshop is open for all but for a limited number of participants. Please CLICK HERE to register, no later than 12 October 2007.
       The fee for three weekends is 700SEK. Museum entry fee, materials, lunches and coffees included.
