Discussion Contemporary Art and Totalitarian Culture

Premiere. War of Art
5 June 2019


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?


Tommy Gulliksen, Norwegian journalist and documentary maker.

Morten Traavik, Norwegian artist and director.


Free admission with advance registration.


Tickets for the screening of War of Art can be purchased here.
