The Conference of the Birds
The Conference of the Birds is a transdisciplinary and socially engaged art project exploring creative ways to coexist with birds in a more than human world. The project reflects on the different bird cultures in the Nordic countries and Russia. We want to examine and understand the shared human-avian histories and to create new lines of thought and action to ensure the continuance of our co-existence in the uncertain future. Commencing with a series of site-specific collaborations between artists and bird-researchers, so called Nests, the process and results of these collaborations will, together with other curated artworks, become a series of events and exhibitions in the participating countries from 2022 onwards. The collaboration with Russia is put on hold due to the regulations from our funders.
Nests are curated site-specific platforms for artists, scientists and local partners to explore topics relating to birds and habitats in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Russia. The collaboration with Russia is put on hold due to the regulations from our funders.
