  Still from video piece Feminism and weapons on export: The re-militarisation of Gotland. The vast Tofta shooting range south of Visby was deserted for a long time, but now hosts a brand new facility, built for 1 billion kronor. It is the first new establishment of a garrison in Sweden since the 1980's, now hosting 300 soldiers.






















   
 

Still from video piece Feminism and weapons on export: War producing gender. Entertaining the troops: Marilyn Monroe in Korea 50's, Vietnam 70's, British forces in Afghanistan 2013 & Lili Marlene popular on several sides during WWII.






















   
  Still from video piece Feminism and weapons on export: List of militarist values according to researcher in political science Cynthia Enloe, as defined in her book Globalization and Militarism - Feminists make the link.















   
  Still from video piece Feminism and weapons on export: Militarism requires a thinking where there are protectors and those who need to be protected.














   
  Still from video piece Feminism and weapons on export: Stories related to gender are a common way of justifying war. When the US attacked Afghanistan in 2001, it was said that the aim was to save women from oppression and burqas, although it was really about revenge. Feminist researchers draw parallels to the ancient greek myth of the beautiful Helen, whose abduction was used as a pretext for the Trojan war.








   
 

Summer 2017: Intense editing on the video piece Feminism and weapons on export: Masculinization VS feminization: When Swedish Commander in Chief in 2014 confirmed that a submarine had violated Swedish waters, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister called Swedish military "unmanly". Background image from stranded Soviet submarine outside southern Swedish east coast in 1981.








   
  July, 2017: On this beach, at the southern point of the island of Gotland, in the Baltic sea between Russia and Sweden, I spent the first 15 summers of my life. These years, between 1975 and 1990, were also the last years of the Cold War. As a child I played among these World War II bunkers, collecting empty vodka bottles thrown overboard from military ships patrolling the Baltic sea. Soviet broadcast could be overheard on FM radio, the loud noise from rehearsing Viggen fighter planes flying low over the beach made the grown-ups grave and silent. Stories were told of suspicious vans parked close to fenced military protection areas, surely filled with Russian spies listening in to secret communication. When picking berries in the woods, I suddenly stood face to face with an armed soldier.

  July 8, 2017: 0s+1s Collective is taking part in Work Hard! Play Hard! Transmission festival in Minsk, Belarus."This year WH!PH! gives a level look at processes, taking place on multiple speeds, at their networking, overlapping and breakdowns; to learn about emotional labour and liquidity of our desires; to problematize the tendency of services to become a mega-platform that monopolises our time; to discuss the possibilities of wide cooperation around actual economical questions (“It’s the Political Economy, Stupid”); to meet with human and non-human agents; to look at the backside of start-up culture; to give pleasure a political meaning; to dive into inhuman high-speed flows and to slow down artificially. Or not to do so. To collectivize the stress and to make it an instrument for solidarity." More nfo on: WH!PH!





   

 

May 2017: Developing my piece Feminism and weapons on export from the text version in The Legacy Complex exhibition at Gotlands Konstmuseum to video version for our next show at Fabrica de Arte Cubano in Havana, Cuba this autumn. The work
deals with the Swedish Feminist Foreign Policy, which is being conducted at the same time as the Swedish defence is escalated and the arms export continues.
I link this contemporary situation to the masculinization of popular culture in Hollywood cinema during the Cold War, to how gendering in general is relating to militarism, and to my own personal
memories of living in militarised southern Gotland between the years 1975-1990.

Aucun lieu n'est trop insignifiant, délabré ou banal pour nous deux voyageurs qui insufflent, à chacque lieu visité, un brin de leur esprit artistique. Certes talentueux, le duo n'est pas très chanceux et tend à vivre un peu à la marge. Les Frères sont constamment en mouvement, leur regard se déplace dans la ville, ses ruelles et arcades, profanes ou exaltées.>>
