CCA is one of three organisations curating a public seminar as part of Disappearing Acts in Lofoten International Art Festival.

CCA’s contribution to LIAF’s opening seminar will take as a starting point the decentring of human understandings of place. This decentring can be seen as part of a renegotiation of the human that includes expanded ideas of the post-human; a reassessment of animal agency; and a questioning of the ‘species barrier’ we have imagined between ourselves and the non-human world.

For this event, chaired by curator and academic Helga-Marie Nordby, Sarah Browne will present some of the research modes and ideas that emerged during her year-long public project in CCA dealing with animal/human relationships. Katja Novitskova and Agatha Warawill conduct a public conversation touching on these ideas in an exploration of the material world around us, including human and non-human systems and entities.  

The seminar takes place on the opening weekend of Disappearing Acts, curated by Matt Packer and Arne Skaug Olsen. Click here for further information.

CCA’s new Our Neighbourhood publication, Between a Dog and a Wolf, is now available to peruse and purchase in our library space. The material in this book is the result of a 10-month programme of workshops, screenings, talks and performances, led by Sarah Browne, which took place at CCA, around the city, and beyond. Copies are priced at £10.00.
