(In)Visible Dialogues

Fredsgatan 12, Stockholm, Sweden - Sunday March 20

Probing the Boundaries of Talent.

The previous two dialogues are online on:




(In)Visible Dialogues is neither art nor science, but a platform for both fields to meet in harmony as well as friction. It brings together leading specialists from the two disciplines from Europe, Asia, Australia and USA to dialogue about life and the boundaries of reality. (In)Visible Dialogues was initiated by artist Per Hüttner and Elias Arnér, professor in biochemistry at Karolinska Institutet in close collaboration with graphic designersÅ…bäke in London and a group of international sound artists. The project is a continuation of Begrepp - en Samling (Concepts a Collection) that was realized by the two former in 1992 at the same location.

When you enter (In)Visible Dialogues you will see 120 fluorescent chairs facing a blank wall. On the back of each chair a copy of the project's 240 page catalogue has been nailed and signed by an central person in Stockholm's scientific community. The chair is a version of Jonas Bohlin's design classic Concrete which has been customized by Å…bäke. The side rooms remain empty apart from a solitary lectern painted in the same colour as the chairs and which is connected to speakers that emit strange sounds.

Participating sound artists: Andy Cox and Richard Allalouf, Natalia Kamia, Samon Takahashi, Ebbot Lundberg and Yan June

(In)Visible Dialogues is supported by: Karolinska Institutet; Linköpings Universitet; Vision Forum; Ragnar Söderbergs Stiftelse; Sven och Dagmar Saléns Stiftelse; Akademien för de Fria Konsterna, Göran Lagervalls stiftelse and Statens kulturråd.
