What is an artist, and in what ways does art get influenced by the time during which it is created? In her recently published book Om kunst (About Art, Forlaget Oktober), Lotte Konow Lund talks to both established and upcoming artists about how to define Norwegian art today. The book also gives us an insight into how historical and social changes affect art.
In connection with the book launch, Lotte Konow Lund and Kaja Schjerven Mollerin will have an open conversation about art. The conversation will streamed on Facebook and thereafter be published on this page. Open to everyone!
Words of welcome by Anne Hilde Neset (director at Kunstnernes Hus)
