We are living in a time where European identity once again is attempted rewritten into an untrue and limited history about who and what we are. Autumn 2017 we asked whether ethnic diversity is not in fact our true Nordic identity and whether the cultural world can contribute to create a new, shared sense of belonging.
Which freedoms do we take for granted, and which freedoms do we still have to fight for? This spring TrAP explores how different types of freedom can get into conflict with each other in a diverse society. We will look at how to express group identity, such as your cultural or religious background, gender or sexual orientation, while avoiding being limited by stereotypes. Through conversations, humor, and practical experiences we wish to create new ways of understanding; freedom.
This exhibition featured works by the South African artist Zanele Muholi, Ahmed Umar, Linn Cecilie Ulvin and Sara Christensen. First shown in Oslo, we wanted to bring works from this exhibition to Tromsø, Trondheim and Svolvær.
