Academy Lectures: Kristian Øverland Dahl and Steinar Haga Kristensen
Academy Lectures' series "Skin Talk Tongue Touch - Conversations with the Faculty" presents Kristian Øverland Dahl and Steinar Haga Kristensen.
The Art of Being Governed
Academy Lectures is pleased to invite you to a session where you get to meet the artists Steinar Haga Kristensen and Kristian Øverland Dahl in conversation.
Technicalities and the importance of principle - strategies for fruitful engagement when faced with executive government, the temptations of revolutionary excess and the vanities of doubt that derive from lingual structures.
During the conversation the artist will play out their fascination with the inherent impurity of painting – the conflict between image and representation, as well as the glorious anatomy of the horse. Steinar is outspokenly skeptical of the concept of doubt, while Kristian is deeply engaged in the endless inscrutability of the human face, and both dealing with the fact that they love people.
The conversation will be held in Norwegian.
