n the Critics´Conversations we discuss exhibitions currently on view in Bergen. With a panel of three professionals from the field of visual art, we try to entangle the inner workings of the exhibitions and the art that is on view. Through the conversations we want to generate an analysis and suggest ways of understanding what is presented to the visitor.
