KNIPSU + YTTER
17.02 – 19.02 2012
For Supermarket 2012, KNIPSU will conduct a workshop under the title ‘Thank you for listening’ together with the artist group Ytter (consisting of Julie Lillelien Porter, Anne Marthe Dyvi and Anngjerd Rustand). As a starting point for the dialogues and works, the ‘ethical side of being a wealthy oil nation, and the consequences this has for artists and art in Norway’ will be discussed. The workshop will deal with thematically linked keywords such as power, economy, authority and guilt through fortune telling, conversations, performance and visual artworks.
This event was produced with generous support from the Norwegian Arts Council, Bergen City, OCA and Nordic Culture Point.
