Screen City was established in 2013 in Stavanger, Norway. From 2017 it will be presented as Screen City Biennial in close collaboration with local and international art institutions and organizations. The Biennial presents a new platform that works to explore uses of the moving image in contemporary artistic practice.
For the 2017 Biennial edition titled Migrating Stories, Stavanger harbor – its architectonic position in the landscape and its surroundings – will be an important focus for production and presentations of the art. The Biennial will present moving image artworks from a broad range of international artists in dialogue and conjunction with the urban sphere and context in the city of Stavanger.
