A conversation between Kristian Byskov and Frans Jacobi
as part of the ongoing research of SYNSMASKINEN.
Kristian Byskov is a visual artist and writer based in Copenhagen, DK. He has created the theatre piece Dark Pool together with Sidsel Carré, Kristian Hverring and Maria la Cour. Dark Pool was presented first time in X AND BEYOND in Copenhagen and works with the subject of affective cyborgs and embedded catastrophes in complex systems.
SYNSMASKINEN is a series of inquiries into contemporary political crises. The project will consist of several art-projects, each exploring a certain aspect or manifestation of contemporary crisis. Together these visions are attempts to unfold a contemporary cosmology; a new political horizon.
