Bergen Assembly 2019, "Actually, The Dead Are Not Dead", begins its public programme on 5 and 6 April 2019 with the opening of its central working, meeting, and public space Belgin [ˈbælgən]. The space’s name refers to the Turkish singer Belgin Sarılmışer (1958–1989), who adopted the alias ‘Bergen’ after the Norwegian harbour city. With Belgin, Bergen Assembly 2019 opens a new space in Bergen’s city centre, which is conceived from the very beginning not only as a venue for Bergen Assembly itself but also as a shared space that is open to the activities of local groups and initiatives.

The introduction days of Bergen Assembly 2019, taking place both at Belgin and its neighbour Landmark, comprise talks, debates, performances, and screenings introducing first aspects, concerns, formats and aesthetics of "Actually, The Dead Are Not Dead". It will discuss the notion of assembly, the emancipatory potentials of art, aspects of sharing knowledge and experiences, and what it could mean if the dead were actually not dead.

With contributions by Daniel G. Andújar, Bergen, Stacy Brafield, Capital Drawing Group, Hans D. Christ, Ines Doujak, Iris Dressler, Ruth Ewan, Magdalena Freudenschuss, Lottie Hoare, Hiwa K, Alexander Kluge, Multitati (Tatiana Palanca), Nora Landkammer, Viktor Neumann, Andrea De Pascual (Pedagogías Invisibles), Daniela Ramos Arias, Karin Schneider, Simon Sheikh, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, and others.
