Monday Begins on Saturday is the title of the first edition of Bergen Assembly, and takes the form of an international exhibition, publication, and symposium.
The exhibition presents the positions of more than 40 international artists working in a variety of media. As a contemporary rewriting of the Soviet fantasy novel Monday Begins on Saturday by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, the exhibition is conceived as an archipelago of fictitious research institutes. Spread over multiple venues in Bergen, it gathers works that are themselves the outcome of critical-imaginative research into the heightened contradictions and particular injustices of our time.
The publication, a print version of the curatorial montage with newly commissioned and anthologized theoretical, literary, and artistic texts and contributions, will accompany the exhibition.
An international symposium featuring artist’s talks and panel discussions with the project’s contributors also takes place during the opening days of Bergen Assembly.
