Kybernein Institute at Index Foundation
Location: Public gathering at Index Foundation in Stockholm, 21 August 2020
Kybernein Institute presents the exhibition The Campaign during one evening at Index Foundation. The Campaign is a new investigation of how a network of think tanks led a hidden revolution in Sweden during the 70s and 80s which transformed the foundation of a unique social model.
Kybernein – to steer a ship.
Comes to mean: impress information
and value, into unconsumable objects.
Kybernein Institute is a hybrid cultural platform that operates at the intersection of art, business and politics. Kybernein explores how social and economic models, developed by various organisations and companies, produce and distribute narratives to effect and change our contemporary life and society.
Kybernein is an initiative that studies the overlapping strategies of policymaking and cultural production – how narratives are implemented through aesthetics and storytelling to change our perception of the world and how we define the problems and solutions.
Through the production of exhibitions, performances and events, Kybernein wants to explore the systems of how ideas formed by language, text, and image are ultimately implemented through acts of politics.
Through its events, Kybernein creates a space that generates new perspectives and knowledge on some of the most dominating narratives and ideals of our time, which are all related to how we shall develop society and solve the crisis of our civilization.
Narratives about the creative entrepreneur as an outsider and visionary, our strong belief in technical innovation, and various economic and social concepts for social change. Kybernein wants to investigate the construction of how these stories are staged and reproduced in our society today.
Kybernein Institute would love your support. Please donate to our activities and sign up to our mailing list to attend events and get involved.
