For the past ten years Bergen Kunsthall’s fifth hall, the gallery and project space NO.5, has been a venue for small solo exhibitions that run parallel with the main exhibitions of the Kunsthall. In autumn 2011, Bergen Kunsthall invited three Norwegian curators to mount a series of group exhibitions specifically for NO.5. The three curators have different approaches to the art field, and work from different geographical bases. The first in the series was “Chaos as Usual” curated by the New York-based Hanne Mugaas. This was followed by the exhibition “Oh How Time Flies”, curated by Erlend Hammer. The last exhibition was “No Sense of Place”, curated by Elisabeth Byre.

In connection with these three individual exhibitions, Bergen Kunsthall published three exhibition catalogues in a joint release, spring 2012. The catalogues consist of newly produced texts that relate directly to the three different curatorial concepts, and photo documentation of the exhibitions in NO.5. In total the three volume set, Chaos as Usual, Oh how Time Flies, No Sense of Place, presents the works of 20 artists through 12 texts and 66 illustrations.
