This spring the Berwald Hall will explore the connections between music, technology and movement – together with the audience! From February to May a border-crossing exhibition will be on show in the foyers of the Berwald Hall with interactive musical installations created by Carl and Åsa Unander-Scharin and Ludvig Elblaus.
Guillaume Apollinaire was one of the leading figures of 20th century French modernism; he coined the term Surrealism but is mainly remembered for his poems. In his concrete poetry (where the typography and layout clarify and illustrate a theme or subject of the poem) he presented some of the keynotes that were typical of modernism at that time: memories of the First World War, of peace, love and new technology. He called this form of poetry Calligrammes, which is also the name of a collection of poems from 1918.
