The seminar is unfortunately cancelled.

The permanently installed artwork 'Hardanger Skyspace' is situated by the waterfront, a few meters from Kabuso contemporary art gallery. The artwork is a highlight in Kabuso's celebration of its ten year anniversary. The plans for 'Hardanger Skyspace' were initiated back in 2012. James Turrell's art investigates light and colour in installations with qualities that place them somewhere between art and architecture.

The preliminary program for the seminar will start off with experiencing 'Hardanger Skyspace' at dawn. The rest of the seminar will include presentations by artists Per Hess, HC Gilje and Toril Johannesen along with philosopher Christian Lysvåg. After the presentations there will be a discussion between seminar participants. The seminar will finish with a visit to 'Hardanger Skyspace' at dusk.
