Can we make art without acknowledging our histories?

A public conversation between Michelle Eistrup and Georgia Munnik on the impossibility of speaking outside of power.

18 December 2019

SixtyEight Art Institute welcomes you to a public conversation between the Copenhagen-based artist Michelle Eistrup and the current Fabrikken AiR artist-in-residence from South Africa, Georgia Munnik, on the role of language and power discourses in relation to the politics of collaboration. With a focus on the responsibility of the artist, when working collectively, and how class and race affect how we navigate diverse environments in the pursuit of content development.

TALK: 18:00 on Wednesday 18 December
– with drinks
Gothersgade 167, Kbh K

Eistrup and Munnik share relational and collaborative methods in their practices, but apply them in very different ways. Eistrup’s work is guided by her commitment to the transformative power of collectivity. She works from the position of encountering other people’s standpoints, and other cultural hegemonies and practices in a mapping, or crossing over, of cultural landscapes in her urgency to understand these perspectives. Munnik works with language, itself a collective practice, in her efforts to isolate ideological discourse from words. Depending on the context she is operating in, Munnik orchestrates scenarios for speakers to collectively ‘island’ or encircle a known language together.

The contrasts in the practices of these artists in conversation, will reflect on how they relate to collectivity and speech; and how this in turn frames the impossibility of speaking outside of power. Both will speak to their respective histories, as growing up in Kingston, Jamaica and Johannesburg, South Africa. Offering how their biographies, class and race positionalities inform their engagement with art-making and collectivity. And as such, how can we make art without acknowledging what we are made of?


Michelle Eistrup (1969) is a visual artist, born and based in Copenhagen to a Jamaican mother and a Danish father. She grew up in Jamaica, Paris and New York and holds a BA in Social Anthropology from Haverford College, Pennsylvania. She graduated in Media Arts from the Royal Danish Academy of Arts.

Eistrup’s artistic practice explores the history, legacies and denial of colonialism, particularly in Denmark. Eistrup has done this primarily through four overarching themes: African diaspora identity and expression; the politics of recognition; the dynamics of isolationism; and culturally embodied rites and rituals. Not only has she explored these themes in conjunction with her own personal biography as a woman with both Jamaican and Danish heritage, but also by looking at power relationships and the ways “culture” is constructed, institutionalised and intellectually framed.

Georgia Munnik (1990) is a South African visual artist based in Cape Town. She graduated with an MFA in Fine Art from Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art, Norway (2015) and returned to South Africa in 2017. She has shown artworks in solo and group exhibitions and attended artist residencies in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and Switzerland. In 2016, she was selected to be the festival artist for the Arctic Moving Image and Film Festival. Munnik works between the fields of visual arts, curating, writing, pedagogy and queer social practice. She uses language as a primary medium in her work; specifically, she operates from the double bind of a formal language performing itself against the cues that denigrate its speakers to specific class, race and social positionalities. She is also one third and co-founder of the international queer feminist artist collective, IMA READ (DE/CA/SE/ZA).

SixtyEight Art Institute is an artistic/curatorial research organization looking to uncover, develop, and further exchanges between artists and curators and their creative labor. The exhibition How we let Venice flood and other stories is the eleventh installment of our two-year program of exhibitions, called Modes and Notes on the Local, which is kindly supported by Københavns Kommunes Råd for Visuel Kunst and The Danish Arts Foundation. The evening talk with Michelle Eistrup and Georgia Munnik is supported by (and in partnership with) Fonden FABRIKKEN for Kunst og Design as part of their Fabrikken AiR artist-in-residence program, which hosts a diverse range of international and regional artists in Copenhagen.
