Åpent Forum, 28.05: Do We All Agree? Ane Hjort Guttu, Helle Siljeholm and Fadlabi

For the closing night of this season we are honored to invite you to an interesting talk between Helle Siljeholm, Fadlabi, Ane Hjort Guttu, and OWO with Ahmed Umar’s Hijab (Annual protection) piece.

It is often said Norway is a consensus country, with a consensus culture where people seem to want to agree more than disagreeing. What challenges do these agreements evoke to artists? Do we face boundaries that lead to self-censorship to keep ourselves loyal to these agreements? Are we critical about them or do we benefit from them?
