Samtalen holdes på engelsk og er i forbindelse med Joar Nangos Festspillutstilling 2020 som åpnet 4. september og står til 8. november.

Ikke møt opp dersom du føler deg uvel eller har symptomer på luftveisinfeksjon. Vi minner ellers alle om 1-metersregelen og god håndhygiene for å hindre smittespredning.

I festspillutstillingen 2020 drar Joar Nango forskningen inn i utstillingsrommet og gjør den til kunst. 31. oktober inviterer Nango til dialog med samfunnsgeograf Tone Huse og kunsthistoriker Mathias Danbolt, som fra forskjellige perspektiver har forsket på møtepunkter mellom kunst, arkitektur og kolonialisme i en nordisk kontekst. Samtalen vil ta utgangspunkt i Danbolts undersøkelser av misjonæren og språkforskeren Knut Leems (1697–1774) koloniale kunnskapsproduksjon om Sápmi og Huses arbeid med utviklingen av Grønlands hovedstad Nuuk, med fokus på boligblokken Blok P (1968-2012) – historier som på forskjellige måter inngår i Nangos utstilling. Gjennom de to eksemplene vil Nango, Huse og Danbolt blant annet diskutere spørsmål knyttet til den nordiske kolonialismens karakter og virkning på dagens samfunn. Hvordan aktiviseres og virker kolonihistorien i vår egen samtid? Samtalen er moderert av kunsthistoriker Hanne Hammer Stien.

Plattform er Bergen Kunsthalls serie med forelesninger og debatter.

Samtalen strømmes også live på vimeo:
