My Zeitgeist Hurts
Zeitgeist: the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era. From German zeit, time, and geist, ghost, most commonly understood as the "spirit of the age”. Or Zeitgeist: That undefinable numb pain inside that comes from scrolling and thinking about the internet and politics and stuff. You know, whatever scrambled contemporary topic you like. Not knowing if there’s anything more to say but still feeling feelings all the time, joking about it but being a bit distressed about joking about it. Zeitgeist: what you make fun of so you can relax for a while. Just kidding, its all good. We’re good: Zeitgeist.
Siri Hjorth and Sebastian Makonnen Kjølaas are two well established artists from Norway who have exhibited together in a series of collaborative projects.

Opening on Friday 9 March at 19.00 hrs

Kunstplass is for the 7th consecutive year organizing an exhibition along-side the film festival. Protest Factory is organized in collaboration with the artists, The Finish Artists’ Association MUU and Visjoner Teater Visjoner Teater / Juni Dahr.
