Chapter 1: Practice
March 26th 2022

Matilda Tjäder is a Swedish visual and performance artist, whose multidisciplinary practice builds imaginary worlds through sound, performance, and moving image. In her work, Matilda develops experimental environments where the familiar interfaces with the unknown, the individual with the collective, politics with fiction, and memories with the absence of sentience.

Matilda Tjäder gave a talk on March 26th 2022, for the Symposium day of the Post Design Tangle, Chapter 1, which had the theme Practice. It took place at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden.

General footnotes and moments that brought thoughts to mind throughout the talk are: 9:44, a note on the social production of container space, Missy Elliott’s 1st Episode of MTV Cribs, The Xenogenesis Series by Ocatvia Butler, Matilda Tjäders City’s sound piece, Episode 21 of the podcast Tales from Beneath, the book Queer Phenomenology by Sara Ahmed and the Lynetteholmen project.
