Vision Forum supports research, meetings and production in contemporary visual art with the goal to encourage more visionary and rewarding situations for artists and curators to work in. We currently focus on three main fields of interest: performative practices, experimental film and projects that offer platforms for meetings between art and science.
Vision Forum does not have a physical location or a program, but responds to the needs of the group of producers that are part of the network at any given moment. In 2010-11 Vision Forum has been working with artists, researchers and curators from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Holland, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Lithuania, Macedonia, Turkey, China, Japan, Korea, Australia, Chile, USA and Ukraine.
Vision Forum is currently hosted at KSM at Linköpings Universitet in Sweden. Vision Forum has received funding from amongst others Moderna Museets International Program and Ragnar Söderbergs Stiftelse in Stockholm, the Nordic Council of Ministers and The Nordic Cultural fund in Copenhagen, The Swedish Institute in Stockholm and Paris, the French embassies and consulates in London, Melbourne, Los Angeles and Stockholm; The Swedish embassies in Ottawa, Warsaw, Madrid, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing and London.
