The Conference of the Birds
The Conference of the Birds (CoB) is a transdisciplinary, polyphonic and socially engaged art
project with collaborations and dialogue between artists, scientists and humanities scholars and
local residents reflecting on the different bird cultures and bird-human relations in the Nordic
countries and Russia. 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 with an outreach program and
exhibitions in the participating countries.
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.
