PROGRAM VÅREN 2014

A new year brings a new Open Forum programme, returning for its 15th incarnation since its inception as a student led initiative in 1999. This year will see Open Forum seeking new modes of presentation through its existing format. A number of thematic strands will run throughout the year that interconnect various talks and events, including the nature of working collaboratively, how can we present new forms of dialogue, and various approaches to curating styles.

Open Forum will launch on Monday 20th January with an event by the collective D.O.R who in 2006 coined the term Neo-relational in an attempt to define the work of its group. Recent projects include Contagonism Versus Neo-Miasmatism at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, 2013 and Situation – The Kashubian Interregnum, “Let us compare mythologies” Witte de With, Rotterdam, 2010.

Other speakers in February and March include Bergen based artist Kurt Johannessen who has presented work at La Muga Caula, 8th international Performance festival, 2012, and a solo show at Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo 2007; artist duo Elmgreen and Dragset who curated the Nordic pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009 and will have a forthcoming exhibition at the Astrup Fearnley Museum, 2014; and UK based curator Tom Morton, curator of the British Art Show 7, 2011 and contributor to Frieze magazine.
