KUNST UTAN ROM (KUR) – Art without a room, was an independent group of artists, active from 2011 until 2016. The aim was to develop a non-bureaucratic and artist-run alternative to the professional art scene in Sogn og Fjordane. Through various projects, we wished to make artistic activity visible, and create an arena for experimentation and interaction.
KUR aimed to produce 2-3 art projects each year. We could be the organizers, or participate in projects initiated by others. Our focus has been towards temporary art projects that would not permanently have an impact on the surroundings. We also aimed to visualize possibilities, to ask questions, and to present ourselves as artists. KUR aimed to use art to show social engagement and involvement in important issues in society. Every artist would contribute with his or hers specific qualifications and expertise.
