The performance duo The Disengaged Free Jazz Orchestra has a residency at Köttinspektionen 5-20 March to start up the work with Spells & Compost, a project that looks into spells, speculative futurism and material ecocritisism. Wednesday 20th of March they host a residency showing, together with the artist Anna Kinbom, who presents her video work Rue Madame, and is part of the collective artproject Spekulativa Juntan which they start up at Köttinspektionen the same evening.

17.30-19.00 Drop-in play tank: Spekulativa juntan

With the artist run initiative Spekulativa juntan the artists Anna Kinbom, Maria Stiernborg and Kajsa Wadhia are welcoming you to participate in a conversation based artwork that playfully combines a sewing circle with reading aloud together on the theme of speculative feminism. This time we will read from “The New Atlantis” by Ursula K. Le Guin. Everyone is welcome to join, no preparation or prior knowledge is required. Coffee, tea and some snacks will be served. It is fine to drop in whenever you want during the event, ring the doorbell and we will let you in.

19.00 Rue Madame by Anna Kinbom

Rue Madame is a new video work that Anna Kinbom has filmed in Paris together with her mother. It is a humorous piece about roots and disassociation, histories and memory. Where do we come from and what do we choose to remember and tell about our history, what is left out?

19.15 Residency showing

Using the garbage room as their prop storage, The Disengaged Free Jazz Orchestra experiment with homemade lo-fi instruments, live mixed video and our own untrained voices in a chaos poetic residency showing together with the multifauna that inhabit and share our lives and bodies.


The Disengaged Free Jazz Orchestra, Maria Stiernborg and Kajsa Wadhia, has since 2013 investigated precarious working conditions, neoliberal capitalism and the artist as worker in different artistic experiments and with different areas of research. With backgrounds in choreography and scenography and visual arts we have developed an artistic expression combining strong visual and choreographic elements with a playful and experimental use of language, voice and text. Our artistic practice uses friction, dissonance and humour to question the current construction of society. Since 2013 we have presented work at venues that include Kiasma, Helsingfors, Stockholm Music & Arts, Marabouparken and Studio 17, Stavanger. Previously Stiernborg and Wadhia worked together as artistic directors of the performing arts collective Arena Baubo (2007 – 2013).


Anna Kinbom holds a MFA from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (2013) and has studied performative art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Anna’s art practice is collaborative, she makes her pieces in the context of various artist collaborations she is a part of, as The Uncertainty Principle, The Drinking Brothers, 0s + 1s Collective, Hagsätra Collective, The Speculative Junta and Performance Center. Anna sees the performance situation as a temporary collaboration between her as a performer and the audience. Anna makes text-based performances, micro-stories, pop songs and works with various alter egos. She uses the art context as a stage for her anti-performances, which show reluctance in methods of entertainment. Writing is the motor of her work – supported by the awkward body. Anna has shown works at Moderna museet, Marabouparken konsthall, Göteborgs konsthall och Casa Victor Hugo i Havanna.
