The city


Jugendstilsenteret & KUBE made this film in connection to the exhibition project THE CITY (June 2016 – September 2017), in close collaboration with the film production company Fuglefjellet.

The exhibition project THE CITY is concerned with cities, urban development and urbanization. In addition to three parallel exhibitions in the museum, a number of events have been carried out, such as lectures and screenings, as well as initiatives and artistic interventions in the city’s outdoor spaces. Taking art, urban planning and architecture as its starting point, the project emphasizes the museum’s role as an actor in society. The exhibition “THE CITY – That Could Have Been” is an encounter with the unrealized building projects in the history of Ålesund. Some of the current urbanization and development plans for Ålesund are presented in the exhibition “THE CITY – Ålesund: 10,000 Metres of Possibilities”. The art exhibition “THE CITY – As Arena” features nine artists’ encounters with the cityscape. Artists: Marte Aas (NO), Sophie Calle (FR), Ane Hjort Guttu (NO), Clara Ianni (BR), Elsebeth Jørgensen (DK), Amal Kenawy (EG), Kay Arne Kirkebø (NO), Tom Molloy (IR), Anne Marte Overaa (NO), Jon Benjamin Tallerås (NO).
