Bergen Assembly is an international art event taking place every three years in Bergen. This edition, titled Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead, is conceived by a core group of twelve curators, artists, theorists and activists. It encompasses an exhibition across five venues and public spaces in Bergen and a series of events. At the centre of the project is a preoccupation with life – with an understanding of life beyond the binary oppositions of life and death, human and non-human, subject and object, healthy and sick, able and disabled.

Artists Anne de Boer and Eloïse Bonneviot have been commissioned by Bergen Assembly to produce a new work, Troll Swamp, which is on display in Entrée alongside individual yet interlinked contributions from the two artists. Anne de Boer and Eloïse Bonneviot collaborate since 2014 as the Mycological Twist, working independently in parallel. The project began as an extension of the garden of Jupiter Woods, a gallery located in South Bermondsey, London, and has since then moved to Athis-Mons, a suburb of Paris, and a balcony in Berlin. the Mycological Twist operates both as a fixed mushroom garden and as a nomadic project, infecting and spreading mycelium alike.

Troll Swamp is a large-scale board game for multiple players, based on the formats and characters from the popular tabletop game Dungeons and Dragons. The game has been developed and tested with various groups in Bergen, and utilises role-play and teamwork in order to act out scenarios against online trolling. Through the analogue nature of the game, a playful situation emerges where one plays an imaginary character. Guided by the Dungeon Master (a storyteller guiding the players through the game), each player will face their own online habits as well as their relationship with others. Troll Swamp has the potential to enable its players to regain confidence, rethink dynamics of interaction and reclaim a different space of expression online.

Anne de Boer’s installation Multi Terra Mining functions both as a host to the works of Eloïse Bonneviot and the Mycological Twist, and as a place for the audience to dwell and contemplate a constantly generating audio and video piece created by the artist. The material is taken from the working group sessions taking place within the installation and in Belgin, overlaid with scenery from the city, creating a stage and backdrop for the other works.

Eloïse Bonneviot’s Feminist Gaming Group is an ongoing project organised as a series of semi-private, multi-player, all-night gaming sessions for people with little knowledge of computer games, specifically addressing individuals who identify as women and non-binary. The installation features ceramic potteries used to provide snacks and drinks during gaming sessions.

From September 10 — November 10, opening hours are Tuesday—Sunday, 12—5pm

Bergen Assembly er et internasjonalt kunstarrangement som finner sted hvert tredje år i Bergen. Denne utgaven, med tittelen Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead, er utviklet av en kjernegruppe på tolv kuratorer, kunstnere, teoretikere og aktivister. Den består av en utstilling og en serie med arrangementer som finner sted på ulike visningssteder i Bergen. Prosjektet er en undersøkelse av tematikken «liv», med en forståelse av liv som overskrider det binære forholdet mellom liv og død, menneskelig og ikke-menneskelig, subjekt og objekt, frisk og syk, funksjonsfrisk og funksjonshemmet.

Anne de Boer og Eloïse Bonneviot har laget et bestillingsverk for Bergen Assembly, Troll Swamp, som vises på Entrée i sammenheng med enkeltstående verk av de to kunstnerne. Anne de Boer og Eloïse Bonneviot har samarbeidet under navnet the Mycological Twist siden 2014. Prosjektet begynte som en forlengelse av hagen utenfor Jupiter Woods, et galleri i South Bermondsey i London, og har siden flyttet til Athis-Mons, en forstad i Paris, og en balkong i Berlin. the Mycological Twist manifesterer seg både som en fast installert sopphage og et nomadisk prosjekt som smitter og sprer mycel.

Troll Swamp er et stort brettspill for flere spillere, basert på formatene og karakterene fra det populære rollespillet Dungeons and Dragons. Spillet har blitt utviklet og testet i samarbeid med ulike grupper i Bergen. Rollespill og lagarbeid brukes for å spille ut scenarioer mot trolling på nettet, og hver spiller gjør ulike handlinger som en fiktiv rollefigur. Under veiledning av en Dungeon Master (en historieforteller som følger spillerne gjennom spillet) blir hver av spillerne konfrontert med sine egne nettvaner og det digitale forholdet de har til andre. Troll Swamp har potensial til å gi spillerne fornyet selvtillit, tenke nytt om samspillsdynamikk og ta til seg en ny måte å uttrykke seg på på nettet.

Anne de Boers installasjon Multi Terra Mining fungerer både som vertskap for arbeidene til Eloïse Bonneviot og the Mycological Twist, og som et sted der publikum kan oppholde seg og la seg omslutte av kunstnerens konstant genererte lyd- og videoarbeid. Materialet er hentet fra workshopene som finner sted i selve installasjonen og i Belgin, med overlegg av bilder av Bergen. Dette lyd- og videoarbeidet danner bakgrunn og scene for de øvrige arbeidene.

Eloïse Bonneviots Feminist Gaming Group er et pågående prosjekt, organisert som en serie multiplayer-spilløkter med påmelding, som varer en hel kveld. Målgruppen er folk som har liten kjennskap til dataspill, og særlig personer som identifiserer seg som kvinner eller ikke-binære. Installasjonen omfatter også steingods som brukes til å servere snacks og drikke mens man spiller.

Fra September 10 — November 10, er åpningstidene tirsdag—søndag kl. 12—17

Bergen Assembly 2019, titled Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead, encompasses an exhibition and a series of events taking place at various venues in Bergen. At the centre of the project is a preoccupation with life – with an understanding of life beyond the binary oppositions of life and death, nature and culture, human and animal, subject and object, healthy and sick, past and future.

Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead examines how to redefine our alliances with those who are not presently living. The project proposes communicating with the spectres of the past and the future and taking responsibility for those who are no longer, or not yet, here. This responsibility defies the subjugation of life to the politics of death, ranging from the destruction of the material and idealistic basis of life for countless people, or the deadly rejection of refugees, to the destruction of the planet. Actually, the Dead Are Not Deadrevolves around the reclamation of life, fathoming the potential of artistic practices to imagine life differently.

Bergen Assembly 2019 is conceived by a group of twelve curators, artists, theorists, and activists. This core group develops the programme in the form of individual, shared, and overlapping projects to which it invites further artists and contributors from other fields.

Belgin is Bergen Assembly 2019’s central working, meeting, and public space from April to November 2019. The venue at museum KODE 2 has not been publicly accessible for many years. It will not only host Bergen Assembly itself but is also open to the activities of local groups and initiatives.

Core Group: Conveners Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler in collaboration with Murat Deha Boduroğlu, Banu Cennetoğlu, María García, Hiwa K, Katia Krupennikova, Viktor Neumann, Paul B. Preciado, Pedro G. Romero, Simon Sheikh, and Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa
