Velkommen til ROM 8, og et seminar initiert av BEK og Kunst- og designhøgskolen i Bergen, onsdag 27. januar.

The seminar, led by professor Hilde Hauan at the Department of Fine Art, will question hybrid, intervened and collaborative artworks. How has the artwork been created? Who has the ownership of the artwork? How do ideas and methods from one practice get translated into another? How do we deal with compromise and negotiation in the process of collaborative work?

What about the social, cultural or political position of the artwork? What about the economy, how to share the expenses or the payment?
