Plattform On Maintaining Circulation   Kunsthallen  Artist Talk


Saturday 24 November 14.00 - 18.00
Free. The event will be in English.

Exploring, and questioning, the power structures that circulate and maintain histories and narratives.

With Andrea Francke & Eva Rowson / Wish you’d been here, Anton Kats, Maia Urstad, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, and Hannah Gillow-Kloster (Skeivt Arkiv / Norway’s national queer archive, Bergen).

Plattform is Bergen Kunsthall's lecture series connected to our exhibition programme and wider contemporary debates.

A special Plattform event in the context of Bergen Kunsthall’s winter exhibition 'On Circulation' and a conclusion to this year’s Landmark programme of artist commissions 'Who’s doing the washing up?'. Gathering in a temporary sound space set up by artists Maia Urstad and Anton Kats inside Bergen Kunsthall, the afternoon brings together artists, researchers and archivists to think about how histories and narratives are circulated, recorded and archived - and how the power structures that maintain this circulation could be interrupted for other voices to enter.

How does the technology available to us determine what voices, stories and histories are shared? Who gets to design it and who gets to use it? Whose voices are left in and out?

As part of our 2018 Landmark programme, Bergen Kunsthall invited artists - Freja Backman, Jordi Ferreiro, Aliyah Hussain, Anna Bunting-Branch, Maia Urstad, Anton Kats, Andrea Francke, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Hannah Gillow-Kloster (Skeivt Arkiv / Norway’s national queer archive, Bergen), and our youth group Unge Kunstkjennere - to think with us on possible organisational models and methods of communication. The title of the commission series - Who's doing the washing up? - is used to address questions that often go unmentioned when imagining new futures of who has a voice in these futures, what types of work are valued, and who's doing the work to sustain these future visions.

Supported by Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
