In a press release, Claire de Wangen writes the following about Oslo Kartwerk:

"Through the city, a planned evening route twists, filled with unplanned small and large images and events. With a guided event landscape on your ear and a little screen in your hand, you manoeuvre past noisy trams, in cobbled streets, beneath treetops and blinkingly illuminated underpasses, along townhouses and shop facades, on tarmac and grass.

Oslo opens a crack, we slip inside and are surrounded by Oslo Kartwerk.

The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes, including stairs, walking, wonder and a special experience of a specific route through Oslo. Meeting point: Oslo Courthouse, Hambros plass. Headset and screen are lent out at arrival. Naturally, protection measures against the virus are maintained.

Oslo Kartwerk was created in April/May 2020, in a time when out-of-home experiences with protection against the virus seemed appropriate and attractive. We wanted to examine the strange condition the world was in, through a route on the map."
