Outsider Art

Open seminar
Friday 22.10.21
MG 9874 1 kopi

In the second Agenda of this semester we will enter – ironically – the outside. Specifically this Agenda will be on the topic of Outside Art, accessability, openness and alienation, where we will get a look into Outsider Art in Norway and internationally, alienation and work, as well as alienation and accessability in art and art institutions.

The seminar is hosted by Oslo National Academy og the Arts and Kunstnernes Hus. The seminar is in Norwegian.

Outside on the outside

If we have a common understanding of the art as free, that an artist who creates is free to make whatever for whoever, we also need to make our creations reach the other side, or even more drastically; consider that there is an other side; a side that is on the outside, where someone either actually or metaphysically don´t have access to where there is art, or even where the art is made.
And if we continue our thoughtprocess on the free art and that to create is to be free, we need to ask ourselves if we really have made an open space for art, where all can access freely, both physically and spiritually?
