Bio-Art Performance by Hege Tapio

With a kitchen bench DIY attitude and through artistic practice,  Hege has been inspired by how apparatuses and new technology opens renewed interpretations, creative misuse and critical thinking. Tapio produced the first public interactive electronic art installation in Stavanger, consisting of a double sided handmade LED matrix. Her latest work HUMANFUEL is bringing a perspective to the Anthropocene – including the human form in the biological chain of recycling.

NEUE KAFÉ BARBARA is a café that wanders around the world, serving oncoming people along the road. Meeting new people is a goal and to have something to offer is the way to initiate communication, independent of language. The staff is carrying all necessary equipment in their specially constructed garments. While walking “The ten commandments of Gilbert and George “ is being memorized, where the last commandment is “Thou shalt give something back.” The menu consists of coffee, traditional Norwegian flatbread and cheeses. NKB has been on the road since 2009.  So far the café has travelled from Oslo to Hamar, from Dessau to Berlin and have been walking and serving coffee in St Petersburg. The café has also popped up at festivals such as Otta Martnan and Festspela in Heidal and has taken part in the event “Flüchtlinge Willkommen in Berlin” (Refugees Welcome in Berlin).

Voicing, listening, resonating

with Tony Valberg

Donna Haraway introduces the term other-worlding; the will to go together and modulate possible universes. This workshop experiments with modulating a universe where nothing carries meaning except for its material presence. What does this mean for the sound of a voice? Do we hear a voice without a body? If sound does not carry meaning, how do we listen to it and perceive it?

Book your participation  on Friday 25th at 10am to 11.30 at

The Oslofjord encompasses ecological connections and challenges that are specific and tangible, as well as cultural practices and interactions with the environment and its populations.

 The Oslofjord is nature, economy, infrastructure, biology, materiality, culture and history as well as future plans and challenges.

 How can new concepts of knowledge, artistic methods and interdisciplinary engagement contribute to formulate sustainable relationships to the environment? Together we will focus on ideas and possible strategies for future developments and productions.

Updated program 15th of Nov

 The workshop is organized in three main clusters or spinners of themes, interests and questions that will influence and stimulate each other through documentation and collections of reference material.
