The book Bergen Kunsthall in Perspective, 2001–2013 looks back at Bergen Kunsthall’s exhibitions, publications and events in the period 2001–2013.

A total of 15 newly written articles and reprints of earlier texts discuss the kunsthalle model and the role of the art institution as producer and presenter of art and as an actor in society—with a starting point both in Bergen Kunsthall’s own programme and in the more general perspective. Texts by Knut Ove Arntzen, Ina Blom, Dominic Eichler, Harald Flor, Eva Rem Hansen, Charlotte Myrbråten, Nina Möntmann, Josephine Pryde, Adrian Searle, Steinar Sekkingstad, Roar Sletteland, Dag Sveen, Monika Szewcyk, Jan Verwoert, Michel Ziegler and Solveig Øvstebø.

To mark the launching of Bergen Kunsthall in Perspective, 2001–2013, we are inviting the public to a conversation and talk in the lecture series Platform.
