Wildow's work Affective Breaks have been commissioned as a poster for the next edition of KRITIKER Magazine. The Magazine will be released on February 10th, at Index Stockholm.
Last wee the digital book and archive www.c-along.com was released, as the accumulation of two years artistic research on dialogue, intimacy and desire lines by Hanna Wildow. During 2014 — 2015 c.along was presented as a series of salons; nine physical acts that explored habitual and performative modes of dialogue. The gatherings were choreographed by Hanna Wildow in collaboration with the ten practitioners and performed by a total of two hundred participants. Provoking a multitude of straying ideas, words and bodily actions; the explorations were thoroughly documented throughout their processes. Generated documents have been gathered, edited and further played on by five other practitioners. Accumulated, they form the digital collective online-choreography named c-along.com.
c-along.com hosts an archive of new and unpublished works; multiple letters, scores, scripts, notations, maps — two sound pieces, one audio guide, five videos, photography — stories written from guts and through elbows, narratives written in the act of falling/failing asleep, endless walkings and talkings, lots and lots of techno, speech and silence, memory works, deaths and bodies in decay, breakups and makeups, and boundaries that fall in to free collapse.
c.along was organized and designed in collaboration with with Sara Kaaman, Joel Galvez, Jess Arndt, Litia Perta, Cristina Caprioli, MYCKET (Katarina Bonnevier, Thérèse Kristiansson, Mariana Alves), Frédéric Gies, Corrine Fitzpatrick, Sara Magenheimer, Stina Nyberg, Laida Aguirre, Katherine Hubbard, Roxy Farhat, Moa-Lina Croall and Patriez van der Wens, produced and administrated by Izabella Borzecka and My Carnestedt.
"In The Meantime" exhibited as part of group show 'The Closer I Get To The End The More I Rewrite The Beginning', at Human Resources, Los Angeles.
The audio piece In The Meantime is exhibited as part of the group show The Closer I Get To The End The More I Rewrite The Beginning, curated by Suzy Halajian and opening tonight at Human Resources in Los Angeles.
The Closer I Get To The End The More I Rewrite The Beginning presents works by Basma Alsharif, Doa Aly, Gilda Davidian, Mariah Garnett, David Horvitz, Hiwa K, Mark Leckey, Klara Liden, Christine Rebet, Julie Tolentino, Erika Vogt, and Hanna Wildow to explore the state of exhaustion, through the time and space that make it possible. The project questions the appearance and contours of social spaces that enable this condition, and locates instances within these sites that allow for new forms of sociability. By considering both individual and collective states of being together situated within a neoliberal and mutating model of capitalism, the exhibition asks how these spaces may be realized in a state of nonstop action and renewal and how their potentials may unfold over time. The works in this exhibition reimagine, re-perform, consume, and even obliterate images and places set in motion. They refuse to remain static or meet at the center, but continue to turn and shift, only to begin again.

un/know/n is a series of lecture performances curated by Hanna Wildow. The series attempts to explore ‘lecture performance’ as a term and genre, while presenting contemporary practitioners from various fields whose works can be positioned in the intersections of choreography, theory and pedagogics. un/know/n also poses questions concerning production and distribution of knowledge and power. Insisting on crip theory as a practical-theoretical framework - and on choreography as an alternative language as well as a deviant method for learning and unlearning - un/know/n seeks to stray beyond known paths in art and history.

'I am Writing to You' exhibited as part of group show "One After Another, In Succession" at Charlie James Gallery, Los Angeles.
A special work made upon invitation by curator Johanna Breiding, 'I am Writing to You'. A Doubled Text in Two Parts. is a text montage of letter correspondences, created in collaboration with Litia Perta, produced as a to-go text in edition of 500. The work contains quotes from Kathy Acker, McKenzie Wark, Paul Celan, Ingeborg Bachman, Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville West, Rosmarie Waldrop, Edmond Jabès, Roland Barthes, Fleetwood Mac, Katherine Hubbard, Inga Svensson, Dylan Mira, Hélèn Cixous, Carmen Argote, Johanna Breiding, and Jennifer Moon.
The group exhibition also features work by Carmen Argote, Johanna Breiding, Harry Dodge, Charles Gaines, Ken Gonzales-Day, Tyler Matthew Oyer, Dylan Mira, Julie Tolentino, Alice Wang and Kim Zumpfe. It opens on October 24th and is up through December 5th, 2015. It explores the notion of tracing as a means to relocate and archive one's own memory, as unwritten history. Through bodily and linguistic acts of repetition, the act of tracing simulates not only a linear structure that is methodically repeated over time, but it also signifies the retelling of a narrative. Tracing is a form of copying, and therefore a form of questioning authenticity, authorship and ownership, and history. Acts of re-doing and re-formulating expose that which has been forgotten, left unsaid or made invisible, and in doing so present a multiplicity of stories and layered realities.

As part of Konstfack 2015 Degree Exhibition, Affective Breaks opens on May 13th. The exhibition is up until May 24th. Affective Breaks is an artistic research project through which Hanna Wildow collaboratively processes linguistic, political and emotional aspects of translation. Through performative inquiries, engendered as lectures, video, sound, books and installations, she explores dimensions of translation, while at the same time embodying and performing them. Wildow’s interest in translation concerns the movement and displacement that can be found in languages — shiftings, breakages, slippages and gaps. She examines these interspaces — in between words, cultures, bodies — in search of places where language reaches its own limits and stops itself; becomes lost, skewed, queer.
Affective Breaks consists of a series of overlapping works and for the spring exhibition, Wildow makes a site-specific installation within which an archive of these unfold; works collaboratively engendered together with Inga Svensson, Imri Sandström, Laida Aguirre, Sara Kaaman, Moa-Lina Croall, Moa Edlund, Athena Farrokhzad and Cristina Caprioli.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Wildow will also perform her video lecture De starka, stolta kvinnornas berg:
May 15th – 17th at 2pm, at Midsommargården (Telefonplan 3, above the library). Open to the public and free of charge.
