Traverse was launched in December 2016 with a pilot project made in collaboration with Hangar, a cultural prodcution and artist resource center in Barcelona, Spain. Using the theme of productivity as a starting point, we invited local artist Anders Visti to enter long-distance dialogue with Barcelona-based artist Christina Schultz.
Over the course of three months, Anders and Christina explored the role of artists as producers within current social, political, and affective economies. Several works grew out of their collaboration, including a digital tool designed to soothe the anxious producer and a lullaby call line for the insomniac producer.
Anders Visti presented their collaboration at AaBKC's ART BAR, organized in collaboration with Det Jyske Kunstakademi, who hosted the event in their special laboratory for art and the public, Splab. Christina Schultz presented the project at Hangar's monthly Paratext event on July 12, 2017.
