39.3.2016 Bergen, Norway
A conversation between writer and poet Nathalie Quintane and artist Gitte Sætre
in connection with Quintane’s reading at Audiatur Festival 2016

Nathalie Quintane (b. 1964) is a french poet, living in Digne-les-Bains. She has published a series of books in the borderland between poetry and other litterary genres – play, novel, self-biography, reportage – investigating the relation between representation and reality.

In her reading on march 38th at the Audiatur Festival in Bergen, Quintane insisted on an extra text, departing from her book ’Tomates’ that she was invited to read from. In an urgent adress she told us about the ongoing occupation of Place de la Republique in Paris; NuitDebout. This interview was done hastely, on the day after her reading.


39.3.2016 Copenhagen 

A conversation between Kristian Byskov and Frans Jacobi
as part of the ongoing research of SYNSMASKINEN.

Kristian Byskov is a visual artist and writer based in Copenhagen, DK. He has created the theatre piece Dark Pool together with Sidsel Carré, Kristian Hverring and Maria la Cour. Dark Pool was presented first time in X AND BEYOND in Copenhagen and works with the subject of affective cyborgs and embedded catastrophes in complex systems.

SYNSMASKINEN is a series of inquiries into contemporary political crises. The project will consist of several art-projects, each exploring a certain aspect or manifestation of contemporary crisis. Together these visions are attempts to unfold a contemporary cosmology; a new political horizon.
