This spring students in the Critical & Pedagogical Studies programme at Malmö Art Academy will present their exam projects towards the completion of a Master of Fine Arts degree. The exam projects will lead to several weeks of public activities which will discuss and reflect different critical and pedagogical aspects from the perspective of the artist. Activities will be conducted as a workshop, seminar, performance or specific project with a pedagogical aim.

The students will present projects engaging with pedagogy in their practices through a variety of approaches. Through research based performance, Elena Strempek explores the lecture and the meditation class as different pedagogical formats which share the desire of the transformation of the subject. Lucy Smalley invites the public to a collaborative drawing workshop to form a collective vision of an unseen future. Kezia Pritchard will give a presentation of her work with the rural community of Knislinge around Wanås sculpture park, highlighting elements of dialogue and movement in her work. Karen Bohøj uses ethnofiction to consider the personal archive of her grandmother as an enabler of transgenerational learning. Max Ockborn will launch a publication presenting perspectives on material memory, reconciliation and monumentality, all in relation to the so-called Hitler-stones, which the Swedish stone industry sold to the Nazis during World War II. Ieke Trinks presents her research investigating the pedagogical aspects of mediating performance art through her work in which she reenacts artists verbal accounts of their performances. LARP techniques are brought to the arts in Francis Patrick Brady's project which departs from a secret dinner being re-larped, and also analyzed in a public symposium. Angel Nuñez Pombo connects the work of two separate groups of students, studying computer programming and music performance. The result of the students' work will be presented as an interactive video installation, accompanied with documentation of the collaborative work leading up to the final presentation.

Critical & Pedagogical Studies is a Master of Fine Arts programme working across borders between art theory, practice and pedagogy. Please join us at these events to learn more about what students in the programme have been working on.
