Klas Eriksson (SE)

Klas Eriksson is educated from the Royal University College of Fine Arts Stockholm. He lives and works in Göteborg. His works are in media such as video, painting, sculpture, installation and performance. In the festival Live Art for Children 2018, he recreates a McDonalds for and with children, where children can take orders and fetch the food in a nearby McDonalds.

Children are slow, they waste time on unproductive pursuits and play, ask questions – they are everything, that a hyper efficient, optimized and commercial work market seeks to avoid. Come and have some slow fast food, or be a worker yourself.

MC´DONALDS ODENSE. Børn kan forsøge sig som medarbejdere på Klas Erikssons Mc´Donalds Odense. De er med på et gruppefoto af medarbejderne, tager imod bestillinger og indtelefonerer dem til andre børn, der henter maden. Som i enhver fastfoodrestaurant er arbejdsgangen nøje koreograferet, tilrettelagt og indstuderet, og børnene får prøvet rollen som god medarbejder i fremtidens samfund.

About liveart_dk

Liveart.dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
