2023_Reading Seminar: Biennial Culture’s Reluctant Nomads

This WONA seminar was arranged as a reading group seminar in which Claudette Lauzon’s book The Unmaking of Home in Contemporary Art (University of Toronto Press, 2017) was discussed, in particular the chapter "Biennial Culture’s Reluctant Nomads." The group discussed the chapter also in relation to biennial culture / recurring exhibition formats in the (circumpolar) North, and how these have been anchored in their local communities, including LIAF (Lofoten International Art Festival) and Barents Spektakel, Kirkenes.
