Mobilizing Citizenship: Autumn 2022 with WALK OF SHAME
Mobilizing Citizenship (MC) is an educational project where Norwegian and international artists and designers are invited to work with a small group of youth at Kunsthall Stavanger during one semester. The overall focus of MC is to investigate how young people can use tools and methods from contemporary art to express themselves and be heard in today's society.
For the autumn semester, which will be run by the artist collective WALK OF SHAME, we explore how art institutions can create meaningful spaces for young people. Under the theme Sharing is caring, caring is sharing, we will work to explore questions of how sharing can be an act of care. What role can friendships and care play in young people’s lives?
About WALK OF SHAME
Established in 2012, WALK OF SHAME (WOS) is an artist collective based in Bergen, Norway comprised of Gulli Sekse, Hanne Maren Meldahl and Karoline Skuseth. Exploring the interrelation between performative and social spaces, WOS seeks to challenge the established hegemony of genres across disciplines such as visual arts, performance, live arts, and concerts. WOS’ visual expression combines elements such as clubbing culture, natural landscapes, trash culture and consumerism.
Mobilizing Citizenship has received generous funding from Arts Council Norway.
