THE ARTIST AS AN ACTOR IN SOCIETYhttp://www.b-open.no/default12_e.asp...
Art often questions or criticises aspects of society - and the public often accepts art as a sort of correcting voice in our society. From an ideal point of view. B-open has invited artists who works with community based or political art practices, to discuss how art projects and the artist, is an active part in the public debate. Does the artist contribute with a specific competence into our society, and if so, do they have a voice?
B-open has given the challenge to reflect on this question to Jeanne van Heeswijk (Netherland) and Frans Jacobi (Denmark/Norway), along with four artists who will present one of their art projects and reflections on this theme. Presentations will be given both in norwegian and english.
