Program Fall 2013

Open Forum is pleased to announce this fall’s program on travel, transportation, and settlement. Turning our heads towards the vast term and ever expanding project of globalization, we are interested in where and how to position ourselves – whether to move or to stay. To which extent do we affirm to or resist against the global flow of imageries and information? How do we deal with the subsequent, or potential, gains and losses of time, space, and identity? And what are some of the habits and wishes developed during and after the move and their influences on our ways of working and living? With the current demographical and geo-political change we see here in the Oslo art scene and in Scandinavia at large in mind, we believe it is a good time to question and discuss what we already know and don’t know about the issues of locality and global connections and art-making and viewing in these contexts.
