This film is part of Gallery ROM's yearlong project REPAIR, which explores how personal commitment and architectural and artistic practices can influence the shaping of society and the physical world. Several exhibitions, workshops, debates, lectures and events are planned for the REPAIR year. Overarching issues are consumption patterns, alienation, sustainability, ecology, durability, tradition, social practices and ethics in contemporary society. Some of the underlying questions we want to explore are related to how we can nurture what we have and simultaneously foster and transform, while researching the relationship between aesthetics and ethics. Our goal is to promote a counter-culture to the dominating consumer culture and tabula rasa-thinking.

ROMs contribution to Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 will explore the contexts of repair and belonging through this film screening, the exhibition Little Norway, ROM TEAM
