Kristyna Müller is a curator working for Haninge Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden, since 2012. Previously she has been doing exhibitions on freelance basis and also worked for the Czech centre in Stockholm, the Vasa Museum, Stockholm. She holds an MA in Curating from Stockholm University and a BcA in still photography from FAMU, Prague.
Within her curatorial practice she has a particular focus on socially engaged practices, site-specific projects, as well as public interventions. She has curated several exhibitions within these topics as well as edited the publication “Konst, språk och kollisioner” (2015) that explores the work of Haninge Konsthall.
During her participation in Despina Residency Programme, she visited artists and curators discussing the topics of Rio de Janeiro’s fast changing landscape and urban development from economical, environmental, social and political perspectives. As a result of her stay, she presented a research concept titled “The placebo effect of utopia: a research project on urban space” (available in PDF here) during an open event in our space. Together with artist Vivian Caccuri, she organized the 25th Silent Walk/ Caminhada Silenciosa. In this particular walk, every participant was invited to bring some idea to do during the walk, seeds were planted and music was played among other actions. The walk is done under a vow of silence in order to explore the soundscape of the urban city. Learn more at http://caminosilencio.tumblr.com
