Screen City Festival, Stavanger
In Stavanger, Nordic Outbreak visited Screen City Festival: Shaping Public Space. Moving cityscapes on October 26, 2013. The Festival was dedicated to the moving image presented in public spaces, on the city’s facades, shop windows and urban venues enlightening and changing the vision of the urban context of Stavanger.
Nordic Outbreak (2013-2014) was a traveling moving image exhibition project presented by Streaming Museum. The exhibition of over thirty moving image artworks by Nordic artists took a methodological starting point in the logics and shifting hierarchies of the Internet and reflected the changing stances of spectatorship in relation to urban screens. It unfolded in various public and semi-public spaces in New York City, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Reykjavik, Stavanger, Nuuk and Umeå in sub-curated programs. Accompanied by a public program of symposiums, seminars, curator and artist talks, the exhibition investigated current digital dynamics in the contemporary moving image of the Nordic art scene and modes of curating the digital image in urban public space.
