A panel discussion about art in public spaces, moderated by Mike Sperlinger, professor at The Academy of Fine Art, Oslo (Kunstakademiet i Oslo). The discussion will be in English.
In the panel: Vanina Saracino (guest curator for AMIFF 2017 and 2018, independant curator, OLHO), Helga Marie Norby (guest curator for AMIFF 2018, SALT, LIAF) Daniela Arriado (Screen City, Art Republic, PNEK), Sabrina van der Ley (Sør-Troms Museum, Nasjonalmuseumet, Kunsthalle Hamburg) and Ingeborg Annie Lindahl (artist).
“The French film director Jean-Luc Godard once wrote that in the cinema «people are many (together) to be alone in front of the screen», whereas with television «people are alone to be many (together) in front of the screen». But, some forty years later, the moving image is developing new and ever more complex relationships to both audiences and to public space: film festivals are increasingly using unusual venues and the city at large (including outdoor spaces), whilst simultaneously we increasingly watch all kinds of moving image in the palm of our hand. A panel of curators, filmmakers and artists will speculate about where these radical changes to sites and circulation of moving images might be pointing us.” - Mike Sperlinger.
