For the first exhibition of the autumn Bergen Kunsthall has invited the Croatian curator group What, How and for Whom (WHW) to put together a new exhibition especially for Bergen Kunsthall. The six artists in the exhibition, from the USA, Serbia, Turkey, Israel, Denmark and Norway, all touch upon the main theme of the exhibition, which revolves around various occurrences of Fascism in our time.
The curator collective What, How and for Whom/WHW is based in Zagreb and has existed since 1999. WHW has contributed to a wide range of productions, exhibitions and publications. As curators they were for example behind the 11th Istanbul Biennial (What Keeps Mankind Alive, 2009) and the Croatian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (One Needs to Live Self-Confidently… Watching, 2011). Since 2003 they have also curated the artistic programme at Gallery Nova in Zagreb. WHW consists of Ivet Ćurlin, Ana Dević, Nataša Ilić and Sabina Sabolović.
