9TH NORDIC BIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART
17 JUNE – 11 OCTOBER 2017
Press Preview: 15 June 2017
The ninth edition of the Momentum Biennial (M9) takes the notion of alienation as its starting point. In the term alienation the curators refer to a contemporary world where alien processes and entities are becoming an integrated part of our lives through technological, ecological and social transformations.
The creative practices featured in M9 reflect an expanded transdisciplinary exploration. The practices will address alienation, focusing on the following three areas: 1) Bodies, Objects and Technologies, 2) Ecology and 3) Structures and Societies.
The three areas are conceived as overlapping and interconnected and manifest through the individual works and through the multiple connections these works create. The Biennial addresses topical concerns of cultural and geographical borders, biopolitics and social inequality. The works featured in the Biennial resonate with the local context of Moss and furthermore branch out to instigate and participate in broader discussions.
