Release and talkshow with Vi ser på kunst

30. november kl. 20:00
Forstanderskapssalen, Sentralen

  • On November 30, we’re celebrating the launch of our new magazine with a talkshow hosted by Amir Asgharnejad. The evening’s guests are Sandra Mujinga, Geir Tore Holm and Marthe Ramm Fortun. With a special appearance by Kirsty Kross.

    “If there’s a crisis in art criticism, it might pertain to what and how to say something about art, or why say anything at all. We want to spark conversations less constipated by art speak and pompous analysis. More like a creative diarrhea.”

    Free entrance! Everyone is welcome! Magazine for sale, 50NOKs only!



    •   In our first issue we’re reporting from documenta14 in Athens:

    We arrived late last night. Today we go looking for the Acropolis. 

    •   Several sami artists traveled to documenta as well. We interviewed Geir Tore Holm to learn more:

    How to be a sami artist – Street art or vegetable farming?

    •   Agatha Wara reflects on new beginnings:

    # notsuicide

    •   We asked several painters to describe How to make a painting. Henrik Olai Kaarstein:

    Concerning breaks, when I need to use the toilet I always flush early, wanting my last drop of urine to be in synch with the last pull of water going down.
