press release

Opening January 20th, 18:00 at 3,14; 19:00 at Bergen Kjøtt

More than anything, today’s world can be considered in a state of flux, where our national and cultural boundaries are constantly being challenged. Through eight different works and projects, the artists Nevin Aladag, Fayçal Baghriche, Adriana Bustos, Danica Dakić, Ines Doujak & John Barker, Agnieszka Kurant, Walid Raad and Ala Younis spark conversations about migration, identity, power and hope for the future.

This exhibition examines both migration and the broader framework of globalisation. Its starting point is the movement of people and knowledge in the world today, where cultures interact continuously. The global economy, new technology and channels of information are interconnected to the point where it affects us all in an instant. It has become impossible to process all the knowledge we have access to.

The world is getting smaller. Time runs faster. These have become common metaphors for visualising the changes we are experiencing. Images can help make sense of and categorise our experiences, and make us see the situation from a different angle. Transcultural Flux offers new ways to talk about issues such as migration, identity, war, power and hope. The artists bring us new perspectives and open up for different interpretations of the possible directions the world is taking, now and in the future.

A film programme at Cinemateket USF will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibition will also be at Akershus Kunstsenter, Lillestrøm, 12 May - 12 June, showing selected works only.
