The Expedition to the Magic Mountain ivites you to a celebration on Friday December 15th at 12 - 14. The ceremony starts punctually at 12 in the foyer of the IAA in Laugarnes, at 13 the exploration continues in the lecture hall. 

The Expedition to the Magic Mountain (2013-2020)* is an experiment with time and space, exploring levels of consciousness, knowledge and sensibility, old and new. We go beyond the borders of self-assumed existential conditions, and at the same time we acknowledge and face past and present forces of creativity and destruction.

We approach these levels through art, literature, conversation, action. We leave the stage and at the same time remain, seeking, to be found within and without. We sense the ceremony/process as a conception and birth of a single, fractured mind, individual works merge and flow together in collective, temporary spaces of experience. We excavate the wasteland of consumers, consumed with endless shortage and craving for more, when nothing more is to be had.

*Members of the expedition are Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir, Birna Bjarnadóttir, Gauti Kristmannsson, Haraldur Jónsson, Karlotta Blöndal, Steingrímur Eyfjörð and Unnar Örn Auðarson. 

Now is the time to give. The bloodmobile is present. 

After the event the department invites guests to join in Christmas atmosphere and refreshments. 🎄🎄🎄

The event is open to the public.
