Oslo World – Art that moves us towards the future

Wednesday, November 2

4:00 P.M.

INN - "ethnic minorities in Norwegian cultural life" invites you to an in-depth conversation during the Oslo World festival with movement as the theme. Music and art are essential for movement in life and society. Are we manifesting through art, new ways of seeing the world and describing the community? In this conversation, we explore art's ability to inspire, influence the community and create movements in society. We also discuss how we can create the future we want as artists and citizens today.

INN - ethnic minorities in Norwegian cultural life, is an organization for artists and cultural actors with an ethnic minority background in Norway. The members are professional performers, or have positions of trust or work in the cultural field. As ethnic minorities, INN considers people with a background from other parts of the world than Europe, Norwegian national minorities and the Sami.

Through his artistic work, Shwan Dler Qaradaki shines a spotlight on questions related to identity, and being part of a multicultural reality. He uses a number of different techniques and works both with drawing, painting, photography, installation and video. What his works have in common is that they illuminate how the world consists of an infinite number of different perspectives, and the challenges it creates in encounters between people. In his works, we encounter some of the most current social issues of our time, which are portrayed in a personal and poetic visual language, while also having a clear political undertone. A wondering and reflective attitude characterizes all his projects, which try in different ways to expand the understanding of what it means to live in our world today. Shwan is originally Kurdish, and came to Norway as a political refugee in 1999. His artistic projects often have their origins in his personal history, while at the same time they are part of a larger reality. Shwan has a master's degree from the Oslo Academy of Fine Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in Sulaimani.
