Nana Francisca Schottländer @OIT

29 aug. > 26 sept.

Østfold Internasjonale Teater

with 'Material Displacements'

As part of §112 Fredrikstad and (UN)COMMON SPACES, ØIT has invited Danish artist Nana Francisca Schottländer to work with and in landscapes around Fredrikstad. She has chosen places that are shaped by human intervention – both through the extraction of raw materials and the disposal of waste. In Material Displacements, she explores how the material flows of our modern world shape and connect landscapes, cities and bodies, both locally and globally. For a month, you will be able to experience her work through pop-up installations and interventions in the center of Fredrikstad. Welcome to an encounter with the anthroposcene Fredrikstad!

§112 Fredrikstad

This production is an integral part of §112 Fredrikstad.
§112 Fredrikstad is a new art and culture festival, which over four months will explore whether we are good ancestors. The backdrop is the constitution’s environmental clause.
