During the last years we have seen several attacks on artists and art organizations – both in Norway and around the world. This is an attack on artistic freedom. We have been writing and talking about the growing polarization, but in this seminar we want to change the angle and talk about how we can build communities.
In this seminar Iris Beau Segers from C-rex, Philine Rinnert from Die Vielen and Celina Jerman Bright-Taylor from Safemuse will talk about their work on building communities.
Die Vielen is a German network of artists and art organizations who stand together against right-wing extremism and attacks on artistic freedom. Safemuse fights for artistic freedom among other things by offering residencies to persecuted artists. C-rex is the center for extremism research at the University of Oslo.
This seminar is a collaboration between Black Box teater and Goethe-Institut, and is a part of the series Uncivil Societies.
