How can we revisit historical moments in order to re-think the present and the future?
The choices to be made while working through specific historical, architectural and biographical trajectories are of great importance in the process of grasping and linking moments across borders and time. How artists choose to work through and by looking at history – alongside affective traces across dangerous terrains –has been the aim with the course No Straight Story held by Saskia Holmkvist with a group of MA and BA students from Kunstakademiet at KHiO. All the works presented have been developed in relation to the construction of looking at something existing and how this relates to the present.
