Kristina Ketola Bore Joins Kunsthall Stavanger

We are happy to announce that Kristina Ketola Bore will join us as Assistant Curator on March 1. Kristina has already worked with us as a guest curator with her ongoing project Mobilizing Citizenship, and we are very excited to be working with her in a full time capacity.

Kristina is a writer, curator and educator from Stavanger who is currently based in Oslo, Norway. She holds an MA in Design Writing Criticism from the University of the Arts London and is a co-founder of the platform The Ventriloquist Summerschool, as well as a subeditor for the art journal Periskop. Her work investigates social structures within and outside of the arts, in addition to participation and the role intersectionality and feminisms can play in the field. These perspectives are also deployed in the act of curation, which has resulted in series of educational artistic programming for both youth and adults.

Mobilizing Citizenship - An Interview with Kristina Ketola Bore

This semester Kunsthall Stavanger is continuing the project Mobilizing Citizenship, organized by guest curator Kristina Ketola Bore. The art mediation project is aimed at young people aged 12-16 with no prior exposure to art mediation or formal art education. Over the course of the program, the youth will meet and collaborate with a variety of artists and be introduced to artistic strategies and methods in a workshop format. One of the main goals is that the participants will build a sense of ownership over their surroundings and see themselves as autonomous agents with the possibility to partake in public discourse. Below, Kristina Ketola Bore gives us a little more information about her background as well as the impetus behind the project and practical implementation of the workshops.
