HOW TO PRACTICE

2019
How to Practice
UKS
Norway

Considering collegial exchange, informal peer-to-peer/
practice-to-practice learning, and attempts at friendship
as a fundamental part of our remit, UKS presents the
weekly walk-in-workshop: HOW TO PRACTICE?
Starting off the workweek every Monday morning at 10am,
rotating local and international artists teach their conspicuous
version of this essential question —how to practice?
serving up their tricks and toolboxes, angry birds, excel,
or yoga as UKS serves free coffee.
Siri Hjorth and Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas talked about
accomplishing high performance and premium, award-winning
artworks that are safe, healthy, and certified sustainable.

Det ikke styrte, 2019
with Siri Hjorth
Riksteateret

Norwegian:
For tiende året på rad arrangeres seminar om formidling
av kunst. Formidlingsseminaret 2019 har tittelen:
Det ikke styrte – om kunst, uforutsigbarhet og formidling,
og er et samarbeid mellom KORO, Kunstnernes Hus,
Kulturtanken og Nasjonalmuseet. Åpning av Sebastian
Kjølaas og Siri Hjorth, «såkalt frie kunstnere», som drøftet
samfunnskontrakten med kunsten. En påstand var at bak
støtten til kunsten, ligger avkastningen i symbolsk status,
selvbilde og ønske om anseelse, fremfor at den begrunnes
i ytringsfriheten.
