During the Sequences festival the brothers Ásmundur Ásmundsson and Snorri Ásmundsson will host a private art course for students at MR junior college. The course will run from 2nd Nov – 7th Nov 2009 and is open for visitors only at the festival´s closing day Saturday 7th Nov at 16.00.
Ásmundur Ásmundsson infiltrates contemporary culture to scrutinize its creative potential and capitalize on its weaknesses. His pieces are inspired by mass customisation and its inclination to help us make the right choices, since life is both treacherous and precious.
Snorri Asmundsson often seeks to affect the society by public events. He has disturbed the community he lives in for some years with extensive performances where he works with social taboos like politics, sex and religion. Howsoever people react to these grandstand performances of the artist; he is first and foremost challenging sociological and religious values. He seeks sharp responses and examines the limits of his fellow man as well as his own.
