Description

This international group exhibition presents works that explore issues to do with democracy, national identity and personal freedom. The defence of individual freedom has become a controversial topic in which the concept of the nation plays an ambiguous role. The exhibition is part of the celebration to mark the bicentennial of Norway’s Constitution. It will examine, interpret and comment on the philosophical and political ideals of 1814 in a contemporary perspective.

Artists represented in exhibition include John Akomfrah, Maja Bajevic, Andrea Bowers, Libia Castro & Olafur Olafsson, Jeremy Deller, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Matias Faldbakken, Rainer Ganahl, Jumana Mana and Sille Storihle, Alexandra Mir, Sharon Hayes, Marianne Heier, Susan Hiller, Glenn Ligon, Natalya Pershina, Slavs and Tatars, Superflex, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ai Weiwei.

The exhibition is curated by Andrea Kroksnes.
