Based in the above and with a particular focus on the correlation between including and excluding Gade will in her lecture Art, Place and Public take a closer look at Christoph Schlingensief and Center for Urbanitet og Dialog’s attempt at creating temporary rooms for a critical public in a series of relationally oriented and site-specific projects, among other things. Her lecture will link theoretic reflections to one of the projects of Oktoberdans 2008, Dans til folket ("Dance to the People"), taking place in different public locations in Bergen.
