Byrå for å stoppe utviklingen i Tromsø

Byrået for å stoppe utviklingen i Tromsø er en diskursiv og performativ møteplass hvor presentasjoner, vandringer, forestillinger, felles matlaging og samtaler knyttes sammen. I to dager leter vi etter måter å håndtere samtidens sosiale, politiske, kulturelle, økonomiske og økologiske utfordringer på forskjellige steder i Tromsø.

Byrået inviterer deltakere fra ulike bakgrunner og fagfelt til å dele av sin kunnskap, uvitenhet og begrensninger. I fellesskap vi spekulerer vi over hvordan vi kan stoppe utviklingen i våre arktiske og urbane omgivelser.

Utfordringer som vil bli tatt opp ved seminarets ulike arenaer, forholder seg til tilbakevikling av urbanisering og samferdsel (rideskolen), urfolksrettigheter og epistemisk mangfold (Rådhuset), post-fossil økonomi og økologiske vilkår (Tromsø Skipsverft). Bidragsytere til seminaret er blant andre kunstnergruppen Ore.e Refineries og forskerne Anniken Førde og Svein Anders Noer Lie. Kunstnergruppen Poste Restante skaper rammene for byrået i samarbeid med kurator og initiativtaker Jussi Koitela.

Seminaret vil foregå på engelsk. Spørsmål som springer ut fra byrået blir tatt med inn i kunstnersamtaler og debatter under festivalen.

AGENCY FOR DE-DEVELOPMENT IN TROMSØ

We would like to invite you to take part in the Agency for De-development in Tromsø. Agency for De-development is organized within the Vårscenefest festival and is an annual discursive and performative gathering that intents to de-develop Tromsø and formalize strategies for merged contemporary social, political, cultural, economic and ecological urgencies between the years of 2017 and 2019.

How to move and transport people, materials, commodities and entities formerly know as non-humans in the post contemporary infrastructural condition? How to bring indigenous practices alongside of actions and operations of the institutions stemming from Western modernity? What are post oil and post fishery sources for an economical and ecological welfare? We hope you can help us address and re-formulate these three different major questions related de-developing within the versatile contemporary spatial, material and social conditions of Tromsø.

Maybe de-development is impossible as a thought in the contemporary life of Tromsø. At least imagining thoughts and practices that are not “progressive” and future oriented is very difficult. Even though, we are willing to give it a try. No matter if de-development is successful it can challenge Western understanding of development and progress as a main tool of (neo)colonial processes and management of repressed subjectivities. It can re-think development as process that means infinite economical growth made possible by the fossil energy. It can aims to (re)merge together political decision making, economy, culture, human and non-human worlds into holistic cosmology

The first year’s program for the agency is taking place on the 24th and 25th of April 2017 in the form of ambulating event in Tromsø. We hope that you are interested in sharing your knowledge and questions within a group of interested participants from different fields of knowledge and practices. In order to change perspectives and formulate new questions we will move our discussions between four different places, a stable, the City House, the dock and in a gallery.

The agency gathers at 10 am on 24th of April at Tromsø Riding School and continues to Tromsø City Hall lobby and eventually Skipsverftet area. For the first gathering of the agency we will offer input contributions to trigger your knowledge for example from artists Ore.e Refineries researchers Anniken Førde and Svein Anders Noer Lie. Discussions are spatially supported by objects conceptualized by artist and architect Valentina Karga.

The second day, the 25th of April the agency gathers at 11 at Tromsø Kunstforening for a joint cooking sessions where we cook, eat and collectively present an answer for if and how de-development of Tromsø is possible. This second session lasts for 3 hours.

Best regards and hope to see you at end of the April 2017 in Tromsø
Curator Jussi Koitela and artist collaboration Poste Restante
