They began to collaborate as International Festival in 2004, but they have worked together since the early nineteen nineties, moving smoothly between performance, video and architecture, theory, academicism and pure entertainment. International Festival is a platform for long-term collaboration between architecture and performance. They were nominated «Architects of the year» in Sweden in 2007. The work of International Festival is centred on questions specifically related to distribution, responsibility and property in social and economic contexts. Created by an architect and an artist associated with performance, they occupy a territory where the opportunities to pro-actively stimulate and change the coordination of space-time are central. This work is situated in the specificity and singularity of the relationships that it produces in collaboration with the viewer.
