    We organise daily tours to the exhibition venues for the public. Tours in Norwegian, English and Russian.

  • Festival Exhibition:
    Knut Åsdam – Murmansk/Kirkenes

    Knut Åsdam’s new film Murmansk/Kirkenes is an experimental, medium length fiction shot on location in the border region between Norway and Russia – a region receiving increasing attention due to ice melting and rich oil and fish resources. Simultaneously, this is an area of great political tension where NATO meets Russia and whose history is closely linked to Europe’s destiny.

    Premiere of the cinematic installation UNDERCURRENTS: an audiovisual environment inspired by the Arctic landscape unfolding in an ice space echoing the High Arctic.

  • Emily Newman – Ice Station Zebra

    Working with kids from Sør-Varanger and the Nikel Art School, Emily collected first-hand stories and theories that have been combined to create a film that follows story of the project. With photography video and text, Emily’s art-film reflects the kids’ journey to the mysterious weather station on the Arctic ice – Ice Station Zebra!
