Bergen Assembly is a platform for the arts devoted to supporting and exploring continuous artistic work, as part of which it develops an in-depth project that takes place in the city of Bergen every three years. Conveners join each edition and consider new ways to conceive of Bergen Assembly, allowing each iteration to take on distinctly different formats and ideas.

For this upcoming edition of Bergen Assembly, Agarwal, Shibli and BAS are invited to reflect on the possibilities and impossibilities of the transformative shifts that inform our lived experiences and artistic practices. They aspire to engage in conversations that recognise a common desire to address the growing dissonance within their fields.
