Artist talk and panel discussion at Cinemateket in Oslo.
Ever since the origins of humanity, geography has determined which culture, nation or ethnicity we belong to. Globalisation changes this, leaving many of us with unresolved questions. How do we become part of a culture? What are the mechanisms that determine the tribe we belong to - and how do we choose to present ourselves?
WILLAS contemporary and BILDER Nordic School of Photography welcomes you to an artist talk and panel discussion at Cinemateket in Oslo - January 18th from 6.30 pm.
