I bedømmelseskomité for forskningsarbejde ved Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo.

Geir Tore Holm har netop forsvaret sit forskningsarbejde ”Poetikk for estetik i ændring” i disputats ved Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo. Jeg sad i bedømmelseskommitteen sammen med Kristin Bergaust professor ved Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus og Harald Gaski, 1. amanuensis ved Universitetet i Tromsø. På billedet er også rektor Jørn Mortensen. Til disputatsen havde vi spændende diskussioner på højeste niveau om kunst, socialitet, samisk kultur og politik. Geir Tore Holm har sammen med Søssa Jørgensen stået bag Sørfinset skole i Nordlandet. Se i øvrigt Søssa og Geir Tores nye projekt; http://landbrukssporsmal.tumblr.com

REFORM - the book

When we hear the word reform today it mostly means spending cuts. Round 1900  the german centered Life-refom movement 
(Lebensreform) proposed reforms for most aspects of human life, in order to make everyday life, art and ecology melt together. We want to  take back the notion of reform and restart a discussion on how we live together in visionary ways. This publication is the conclusion to the project  Reform curated by Publik (DK), Konsthall C (SE) and Landmark (N)
You can buy the book at Antipyrine
And read more about Reform at www.publik.dk/Reform.html

Pori Artmuseum, WING, MEDIApoint, Finland
01 February till 26 May 2013

Curated by Oliver Ressler & Gregory Sholette 

It’s the Political Economy, Stupid brings together a group of superlative artists who focus on the current crisis in a sustained and critical manner. Rather than acquiesce to our current calamity this exhibition asks if it is not time to push back against the disciplinary dictates of the capitalist logic and, as if by some artistic sorcery, launch a rescue of the very notion of the social itself. 
Additional program has been scheduled, on the occasion of the exhibition: 
Kiasma Theatre, Helsinki: Workshop Oliver Ressler: Alternative Economics, Alternative Societies, 28 January at 10-16.00 and 29 January at 10-13.30, advance enrolment
