Serpent rain (2016) is a film essay by artist and filmmaker Arjuna Neuman and philosopher Denise Ferreira da Silva, commissioned by Stefano Harney for The Bergen Assembly, 2016. The collaboration began with the discovery of a sunken slave ship, and an artist asking a philosopher – how do we get to the post-human without technology? And the philosopher replying – maybe we can make a film without time. The result is a video that speaks from inside the cut between slavery and resource extraction, between black lives matter and the matter of life, between the state changes of elements, timelessness and tarot.

VUMA, is a Bergen-based initiative and network of creators & organisers committed to creating space primarily for PoC (between the ages of 20-35) in the cultural, political, and media landscapes in Norway. As part of Bergen Kunsthall’s THE OCEAN exhibition, they created a new chapter on their geo-triggered audio app ‘VUMA soner’ examining the historical presence and impact of diasporic peoples in Bergen. They used the moving in and out of Bergen via the sea as a departure point.

Bergen Kunsthall is accessible from street level, wheelchair accessible, welcomes assistance dogs and has all-gender toilet facilities.
