Erindringens dissonans – Maj Hasager

Maj Hasager besøgte sidste år i august Sigrids Stue og Gellerup. Hun vender nu tilbage for at udvide sin research og sine samarbejder i området. Maj Hasager tager i sit aktuelle projekt udgangspunkt i digitalisering af borgernes personlige billeder –  dette som et forsøg på at samskabe et nyt arkiv.

Maj Hasagers interesserer sig for socio-politiske forhold og tilstande med et særligt fokus på den personlige fortælling som indgang til aktuelle problemstillinger og konflikter. Hun fokuserer her ofte på erindrede steder og begivenheder – videregivet gennem generationer. Ligesom andre af Maj Hasagers projekter strækker projektet i Gellerup sig også over et længere tidsforløb. Dvs at hun med mellemrum kommer til Gellerup på arbejdsophold. Projektet præsenteres i 2017.

Projektet udarbejdes bl.a. i samarbejde med Lokalarkivet i Brabrand.

In August last year Maj Hasager visited Sigrids Stue in Gellerup. Now Hasager will revisit and continue her research in the area. The aim is to create a whole new archive that is meant to document and preserve Gellerup’s inhabitants’ oral culture. Hasager will collect and record inhabitants’ tales and stories and digitalize their photographs.

In her projects Maj Hasager’s work focuses on
socio-political relations and conditions. She uses the personal narrative as the point of departure for dealing with current issues and conflicts. She focuses on how people remember events and places and how these memories are shaped by being handed down and retold throughout generations.
In line with Hasager’s previous projects, the project in Gellerup will span over a longer period of time during which the artist will be returning periodically to Gellerup. The project will be presented in 2017 and will be carried out in collaboration with the Local Archive in Brabrand.
