We are slowly but surely painting with broad brushes to complete the full experience of Gagnef 2018. Here are some first pieces of the puzzle:
Happy Release day to Jenny Wilson! Her album Excorsism drops today! This is an important album so please listen to what she has to say! We are so proud to announce that she will be playing at Gagnef this year! It will be a midnight mass you will never forget!
Johannesburg performance art collective FAKA was established in 2015 by Fela Gucci and Desire Marea. The artists explore a combination of mediums ranging from sound, live performance, video and photography, to create an eclectic aesthetic with which they express their ideas about themes central to their experience as black queer bodies navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa.
Faka will be part of a new vibrant club experience in Gagnef 2018
ROXY FARHART & ANUSHA CAROLINE ANDERSSON
We are proud to announce that the power artist duo Roxy Farhat + Anusha Caroline Andersson will contribute with a new site specific work for GAGNEF 2018!
Roxy Farhat (b.1984) is an artist and director born in Tehran, mainly working with video and performance. In her practice, Roxy is known for revealing racist and patriarchal structures within society which puts the audience in inescapable situations capturing everyday life and popular culture.
Anusha Caroline Andersson (b. 1979) is a cultural worker using text as her medium. Anusha is the founder of Historieberättarna - a state funded storytelling project working for human rights, democracy, solidarity and freedom of expression by making space for all voices.
Finally one of Ghanas strongest lighting stars King Ayisoba will make the long way to Gagnef. The master of Kologo, this extremely catchy two-stringed instrument, will play in the sunlight by Dalälven. This year he is on tour with a full band! Prepare for some crazy dancing.
