The performance festival in Hamar(174)
In 2003, Kunstbanken Hedmark Kunstsenter established an annual performance festival: The Performance Festival. To our knowledge, this was the first professional festival for this art genre in Norway. From 2009 onwards, the festival has been arranged every second year. The Performance Festival is arranged over two days, and the schedule includes work of Norwegian and international artists.
In 2009, the Sceneweb archive entered a three-year collaboration with Kunstbanken Hedmark Kunstsenter regarding registering and making available documentation material from The Performance Festival. Information on works, who took part, where it happened, catalogue texts, photos, and video clips were registered in the archive and are available to the public here at Sceneweb.no. In this collection, you will find an overview of all videos and images from the festival from 2003 to 2013.
