amodk (atmospheric map of domestic knowledges) is a visual tool for conducting conversations about space, knowledge and power. amodk can highlight how latent knowledge hierarchies often underlie the way a room, an institution, or a home is organised and decorated. Access the project here.

The work stems from an intersectional feminist understanding of power as an embodied and tactile atmosphere where knowledge and hierarchies are created and maintained through spatial, bodily and social relations; objects; and processes. The amodk method is developed through conversations with citizens, employees and relatives within the healthcare system.

The method explores how architectures, spaces, routines, and objects in space creates an atmosphere that can be felt in the body, and through the activity, it is unpacked if and how patients and service users own knowledge and perspective are represented in the space.

amodk is a collaboration between the artists Alex/Alexandra Jönsson and Cliff Hammett, graphic designer Kamilla Mez and the movement facilitator Clara Dybbroe Viltoft. During the exhibition the amodk space was activated with youth workshops by visual artist and performer Sandro Masai and community organiser Erica Figueiredo. 

The project is supported by KulturKanten, Region Nord, Aalborg Kommune, and the Danish Arts Foundation.
