International Festival (S)

International Festival was founded by architect Tor Lindstrand and choreographer and performer Mårten Spångberg in 2004. International Festival operates between architecture, performance, video, theory and pure entertainment: A temporary kitchen was installed at Berlin’s Haus der Kulturen der Welt; at the Tensta Konsthall outside Stockholm a parking space was converted into a public piazza, on other occasions a perfume was produced, videos were shot (After Pollock, 2005), and a publishing house and a special university, the International Festival University, were founded. International Festival is a project that works in very different cultural contexts and that constitutes an open platform with collaborators in more than nine countries that is open for a host of disciplines. “International Festival is all you could ever want it to be.”
