Link to seminar information

The seminar Artistic Courage in a Time of Immediacy will be held at Kunsthall Trondheim this coming Thursday, in conjunction with The Hannah Ryggen Triennale 2016. Over the past few years there has been a renewed interest in the political aspects of art: artists using their political and social commitment as the basis for their artistic production. It is within this framework that Hannah Ryggen has gained renewed interest.
