Art witout a room (KUR), documentation booklet

KUNST UTAN ROM (KUR) – Art without a room, was an independent group of artists, active from 2011 until 2016. The aim was to develop a non-bureaucratic and artist-run alternative to the professional art scene in Sogn og Fjordane. Through various projects, we wished to make artistic activity visible, and create an arena for experimentation and interaction.

The starting point for the project KUR was the wish to find an arena for collaboration. We concentrated at first on finding a location where we could work, meet and invite the public to come and participate. After some time we realized this would tie up time and finances more than that we would achieve the flexibility we were looking for. Therefor in, 2012, KUR was founded.

KUR aimed to produce 2-3 art projects each year. We could be the organizers, or participate in projects initiated by others. Our focus has been towards temporary art projects that would not permanently have an impact on the surroundings. We also aimed to visualize possibilities, to ask questions, and to present ourselves as artists. KUR aimed to use art to show social engagement and involvement in important issues in society. Every artist would contribute with his or hers specific qualifications and expertise.

The fact that we geographically lived close to each other made it easy to meet and implement projects with short deadlines and at low costs. We were interested in collaboration with both private companies and public institutions. The participating artists are all members of NBK – Norwegian Visual Artists Association and/or NK, Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts.
