Save the dates! Together with curator Francesca Marcaccio we have put together a program of seminars, talks, exhibition, publication, workshop and more. We now welcome you all to visit NOUA and Bodø and to take part in these events together with international artists, speakers and writers.
The main events will be held 4.- 7. June 2020, a detailed program to be revealed early 2020
For the 2020 program, aims to give the participating audience an opportunity to reflect on the ultimate power that artists have in presenting us with different realities, and to move the audience’s attention towards new perceptions in the way we navigate documented, historical material and public archives.
The theme of the program will focus on how documentation and archives are changeable and open to interpretation through the curator’s or artist’s interventions. The program will address issues of photography, official and documented history, individual relations to memory and history, concepts of manipulation and authenticity and authorship.
Artists and art theorists are invited to discuss their own practices and experiences around the use of archives to contextualise the topics and question the reality or truth of historical events. A complete list of participators will be revealed early 2020.
