OmU screening of documentary film Keep Frozen September 24th 2017 12:00
@ 03.09.2017 @ Cycle Music and Art Festival, Iceland.
Ann-Sofie Gremaud, PhD and cultural historian, presented the concept of the ‘crypto-colony’ and how she has applied it in her research on Icelandic cultural history and identity. The concept was created by the anthropologist Michael Herzfeld to address the grey areas of colonial and cultural history where the status of a colony or ex-colony is not always clear-cut. To what extent do the W-Nordic countries represent such a grey area?
''The artists Edward Fuglø from the Faroe Islands and Hulda Rós Guðnadóttir from Iceland both deal with national identity of their own countries in multiple ways in their artistic practice. They will present their work and respond to the concept of the crypto-colony.''
