SYNSMASKINEN: Introducing the Hole
Synsmaskinen & Topography of the Obsolete: Kick-off!   Landmark  Klubb

Kick-off for KHiB´s new large scale research projects
Bergen Academy of Art and Design, KHiB, open up their two new large scale research projects: 'SYNSMASKINEN: 7 fields of contemporary crisis' and 'Topography of the Obsolete', phase 2.

SYNSMASKINEN is a new artist-group and an inquiry into 7 fields of contemporary crisis. The project will consist of 7 art projects - together these 7 visions will attempt to unfold a contemporary cosmology; a new political horizon. The name SYNSMASKINEN contains the methodological program: SYN=vision / MASKINE=machine

'Topography of the Obsolete, phase 2' will explore the landscape of post‐industry through raw material, the contemporary ruin and ruination, and the role of art and artists in a non-art space. These strands will constitute the basis of the research context in the different institutions, workshops, seminars and conferences.

Welcome to this grand kick-off with book-release by Rita Marhaug and Traci Kelly: APPALLING MANNERS and a new performance by SYNSMASKINEN: Introducing the Hole.

Both projects are supported by the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme.
