Bobrikova & de Carmen (SK/SE/NO/ES)
Free Lunch Series (Oplægsholdere)
Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen have been working together as an artistic duo since 2005 under the name Bobrikova & de Carmen. Coming from different backgrounds, crossing a variety of studies, they graduated in 2012 from Malmo Art Academy in Sweden.
Since then, in their art practice, they have been active as cultural operators, curators, educators and humans.
Their artistic practice has been based on the discourse between the human and the social, where they use art and creativity as a tool to activate cultural dynamics that facilitate and/or combine education, communication and processes of urban and social transformation. They are interested in mediating the experience of art and culture itself; to build up and mediate new collective practices, understandings and engagements.
In the last decade they have undertaken nomad life, participating in several residencies and presenting their work around the world in venues and projects such as Tbilisi Triennial, Saitama Triennial, TEA espacio de las artes or Slovak National Gallery.
