Transnational Arts Production (TrAP) is an independent arts production company. Our aim is to increase diversity within Norwegian arts and culture. TrAP works with artists and projects that cross borders and brings international contemporary art to the Norwegian art scene. We work with arts in various disciplines, including visual and performing arts, film and literature.
Which freedoms do we take for granted, and which freedoms do we still have to fight for? This spring TrAP explores how different types of freedom can get into conflict with each other in a diverse society. We will look at how to express group identity, such as your cultural or religious background, gender or sexual orientation, while avoiding being limited by stereotypes. Through conversations, humor, and practical experiences we wish to create new ways of understanding; freedom.
This exhibition features works by the South African artist Zanele Muholi, Ahmed Umar and Linn Cecilie Ulvin. First shown in Oslo, we wanted to bring works from this exhibition to Tromsø and Trondheim.
