Vending Machine

Kulturhuset. Stockholm. 2021-06-11 - 2021-08-11. In collaboration with Andreas Hiroui Larsson.

 

Vending Machine is an album by Joakim Forsgren and Andreas Hiroui Larsson – a dialogue between the two and their different practices. On the album they have worked with audio recordings of malfunctioning billboards and vending machines, as well as of percussive sounds from a sound card case, and a tennis racket. BBC Radio 3 recently highlighted the album in a thematic episode based on the collaboration, and with an appropriate name: The Song of the Vending Machine.
Vending Machine is published by Thanatosis on 11 June, and is available in a vending machine at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern until 11 August.
Vending Machine is part of An Infinite Love, an exhibition project in three parts presented by Per Hüttner, Barbara Polla, and Joakim Forsgren, made in collaboration with SKF/Konstnärshuset, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, Kl.9, and visionforum(dot)eu. An Infinite Love is made with support from the Swedish Arts Council. The vending machine at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern is installed on site with the support of Café Bar.
