urban interface is a series of exhibitions and a research project dealing with the changing notion of private and public space which occurs due to the everyday use of communication technologies.
urban interface is initiated and curated by Susanne Jaschko. urban interface | oslo will be produced by Atelier Nord and take place during three weeks in September 2007.
For the exhibition in Oslo we are seeking art projects which have the potential to become focal points of the shifting conceptions of those private and public spaces.
We are interested in works convey the idea of public space as an accessible and contributive sphere and call attention to a more sensitive engagement with the private, physical and digital spheres. For urban interface oslo we prefer proposals by Norwegian artists and by artists working out of Norway and being familiar with Oslo.
The artworks should be located in public or semi-public spaces and easily accessible to visitors. Artworks should either be site-specific or site oriented, time or process based, employing new technologies and thus responding to the complexity and dynamics of urban space.
urban interface is based on the idea that artworks are presented in public in connection with a “host”, which can be a private person, an enterprise or an official body.
