Bergen Assembly 2019
Kulturnatt 2019


Bergen Assembly – Bergen’s triennial exhibition of contemporary art – returns for its third edition to all galleries of Bergen Kunsthall.

Bergen Assembly 2019, titled Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead, encompasses an exhibition and a series of events taking place at various venues in Bergen. At the centre of the project is a preoccupation with life – with an understanding of life beyond the binary oppositions of life and death, nature and culture, human and animal, subject and object, healthy and sick, past and future.

The exhibition across five venues – Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen Kjøtt, Entrée, Hordaland kunstsenter and KODE 1 – includes works by approximately 70 artists and contributors from other fields, among them various new productions.
