In our current globalized world, people and objects circulate more frequently and rapidly than ever. The term belonging has a number of connotations, and we are steadily losing the ability to understand the true value of things, time and relations. Meanwhile, small-scale initiatives to promote feelings of local pride and make the best possible use of local resources spring up like mushrooms.
Who are we – mankind – in this divide between the temporal and the ephemeral? How can we develop our modern environments to create a feeling of belonging – both physical and relational? How do we value local characteristics in an increasingly streamlined and standardized world?
With the exhibition On Residence as a point of departure, we invite you to a guided tour and conversation.
Guided tour in the exhibition at 17:30
Conversation at 18:00
The conversation is moderated by Stig Arild Pettersen, journalist based in Oslo, founder and host of the foreign policy podcast Du Verden!
