Public Talk: Jan Švankmajer, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg
Moderator: Yulia Aksenova
Although from different generations, Jan Švankmajer and Nathalie Djurberg works have been presented together for a reason. The two artists share much in common; their re-working of surrealist themes and motifs, coupled with a deep interest in the workings of the human subconscious. This talk considers the artists’ practices in tandem – what draws them together and what sets them apart.
