‘MINA / MEG – En feministisk, kunstnerisk og aktivistisk QUEER UTSTILLING’ by Zanele Muholi and Lindeka Qampi, June 18 – July 31, 2016 at Kulturhistorisk Museum, 3rd floor, Oslo, Norway.

‘Prologue 1: Art Activism – White Cube vs Public Space‘
Time: Wednesday June 22, 2016 from 15:00 – 19:00
Venue: Historisk Museum (Frederiks gate 2, Oslo) and KORO (Kristian Augusts gate 23, Oslo)
The seminar explores different aspects of art activism from a gender, queer, feminist and participatory perspective. What is the difference between presenting art with a political perspective in an art space, versus presenting it in a public space? How does the choice of exhibition venue affect the impact or force of political messages?
