Bridges Are Burning presents twelve international artists graduating from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The show is the result of two years of thinking and practicing artistic research with a focus on the creation of new pasts, presents, and futures. In a time of political polarization and burnt bridges, how can we reflect anew on exhibiting models for the future while still intervening in our divided present and contested past? The exhibited artists question the power of narratives and knowledge construction and explore queer spaces and environmental issues.

Founded in 2013 and situated in the framework of NTNU, the largest university in Norway, the International MFA program at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is designed for artists with the ambition to develop and enrich their individual studio practice with cross-disciplinary investigations in a wide range of fields of knowledge.

Bridges are Burning was on view May 4–26, 2019 at TKM Gråmølna.

The 2019 MFA thesis exhibition was a collaboration between Trondheim Kunstmuseum and all involved MFA artists at KiT, guided by Rike Frank and David Rych.
