Carl Michael von Hausswolff was born in 1956 in Linköping, Sweden. He lives and works in Stockholm. Since the end of the 1970s, Hausswolff has worked as a composer using the tape recorder as his main instrument and as a conceptual visual artist working with performance art, light- and sound installations and photography.


His audio compositions from 1979 to 1992, constructed almost exclusively from basic material taken from earlier audiovisual installations and performance works, consists essentially of complex macromal drones with a surface of aesthetic elegance and beauty. In later works, Hausswolff has retained the aesthetic elegance and the drone and added a purely isolationistic sonic condition to composing.

Between 1996 and 2008 Hausswolff has boiled away even more ornamental meat from the bones: his works are pure, intuitive studies of electricity, frequency functions and tonal autism within the framework of a conceptual stringent cryption. Lately he has also developed a more conceptual form of audio art overlooking subjects such as architecture and urbanism, rats and maggots. Read more

Konsthall Jönköping är namnet på ett tvåårigt konstprogram med syfte att pröva och iscensätta flera konstprojekt på olika platser runt om i Jönköpings kommun. Konsthall Jönköping prioriterar konstverksamheten i första hand – inte lokalerna.

Verksamheten skall under 2015-2016 synliggöra samtidskonst som provocerar, berör människor och breddar samhällsdebatten. Projekten ska fånga upp ny teknik och nya sätt att arbeta med konst.

Konsthall Jönköping drivs av Jönköpings kommun med stöd av Region Jönköpings län.
