Andrology Showroom

Carl Olof Berg presents Andrology Showroom

Carl Olof Berg | Andrology Showroom | May 2nd-17th , Konstnärshuset

Hello and welcome to Andrology Showroom. Andrology Showroom is a free of charge delivery service where you can book me, Carl Olof Berg, along with three different performances to be presented in your home. It could be a princess work out played from your grammophone, a mellow piano concert with covers of songs written by men by your piano or a guided tour of secluded male areas in your kitchen.
This service is operated via an automatic telephone service 0769 – 45 44 44 and the website andrologyshowroom.se All performances are between 20 to 30 minutes long and you can choose whether you want to invite as many as you like or be on your own while I perform.
Andrology Showroom is an art project that aims to offer a personal conversation on masculinity and prestige but also about your home as a stage where we create and build our bodies. Is is also my final project from the master programme New Performative Practices at DOCH Uniarts, School of dance and circus in Stockholm.
My name is Carl Olof Berg and I am a white, soon to be 40 years old male raised in the neighborhood of Sommarro in Karlstad, Sweden but am based in Stockholm since more than 20 years. I do research on masculinity and prestige within my artistic practice as performer and choreographer. In my work I use my own body and its history as both method and material. I am interested in questions like what bodily practices create and reproduce male prestige. How and at what point are these processes destabilised? What is put at risk in the meeting between my body, social structures and movement? I also hold a silver medal in Lambada and a regional championship in single disco.
May 2nd – 17th 2015, Konstnärshuset and Lilla Galleriet in Stockholm are hosting Andrology Showroom. That means that you should be a resident of Stockholm to be able to book any of the performances during this period. You can also come and visit me in Lilla Galleriet at Konstnärshuset Wednesday to Sunday between 12 and 5 pm, have a coffee and watch me showcase the three performances. During two Fridays I will also offer free lunchtime princess work out for all. You find Konstnärshuset close to Norrmalmstorg on Smålandsgatan 7 in Stockholm.
