  • Fotografisk samtidsdokumentasjon i museene: behov for nye praksiser? 

    Fjellestad, Marthe Tolnes; Stien, Hanne Hammer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023)
    The starting point for this paper is the practice, in Norwegian cultural historical museums, of documenting contemporary daily life: more specifically, through photography. We outline various reasons for and methods of such documentation, focusing on three specific case studies, dating from 1999 to the present day, and particularly on the various collection management practices in these cases. Our ...
  • A Tender World - Transience, Control and the Inevitable 

    Björklund, Maija Liisa (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-12-09)
    In the thesis, I attempt to investigate uncertainty and change, seen through the concepts of tenderness or vulnerability. Using examples from movements and practices like Deep Adaptation and Deep Listening, I also link this perspective to my recent art practice during the MA studies at UIT through concrete projects, and methodolgies used.

  • Fremstillinger av kjønn i utstillingen "Flytende russisk" 

    Stien, Hanne Hammer (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018)
    Fotografier er den typen gjenstander som de kulturhistoriske museene samler mest av (Johansen 2012). I tillegg til innsamling a fotografier inngår mange ulike fotografiske praksiser i museenes primære virksomhet, så som fotodokumentasjon og bruk av fotografi i utstillings- og formidlingssammenheng (Stien 2017, 16). Selv om den fotografiske virksomheten til museene er sammensatt og griper inn i andre ...

  • If I were standing in your shoes 

    Lin, Pei-Han (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-12-08)
    We utilize technology to transcend the limitations of the human condition, or to map the invisible frontier at the boundaries of our physical biology. How could the masses of data produced by our societies in this modern world be used to generate an ideal form of artwork, one which decentralizes power, decolonizes peoples, degenders the individual, and counters oppression by authority? I want to ...

    Jaspé, Phoebe (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-12-08)
    This thesis has no traditional narrative structure and the form stimulates a schizophrenic and bipolarity stance of the world, filled with different epiphenomenal characters and voices between fiction and reality, much like a manuscript based on my own experiences. A pre-determined and an orchestrated future is becoming more of a reality as technologies advance further, it seems that building a ...

    This thesis is centred on an analysis of collage and détournement as artistic and hermeneutic methodologies in a relatively wide sense. It focuses on how the political and theoretical dimensions of détournement, as defined by Situationist theory and practice, can be seen as parallel to - and amalgamated with - specific forms of occult practice and philosophy, particularly alchemy. Arguing that ...
