DESCRIPTION

Discussion before the screening of War of Art.

Director Tommy Gulliksen and the person behind the film’s concept, Morten Traavik, will discuss what cultural exchange can mean today. Can it really spark a dialogue, or does it serve the political interests of the initiator? Can the art of North Korea be understood outside of its ideological context? What do different totalitarian regimes have in common? And what can Western cultural institutions learn from North Korea?
