Cartographies are supposed to map first what is where so that we get a better idea of where we are — or how and where we can become. Yet there are others, obviously, who earlier on used cartographies to shape environments, that came to redefine the very space that was and that we consequently have to chart in following the fabrications of others.

As an artist, writer and curator based in Oslo, Ane Hjort Guttu (1971) has been working with issues of power, empowerment and freedom in the Scandinavian post-welfare state, through video works, picture collections, sculpture and photography. Guttu also writes analytical as well as poetical texts, and several of her projects discuss art and not just the history of architecture but also its modes of empowering people, or blocking their very potential of becoming. Her latest projects and exhibitions include: Where Angels Fear To Thread, Sydney Biennial, Australia, 2014, Urbanisme Unitaire, Le Quartier, Centre d´Art Contemporain de Quimper, 2014 and This Place is Every Place, Tensta konsthall, Sweden, 2014. Forthcoming projects: Future Light, Vienna Biennial, Austria; Europe – The Future of History, Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland; and two solo shows in Bergen Kunsthall Norway and South London Gallery, Great Britain. An extensive publication on Guttu´s work is being published in 2015 by Bergen Kunsthall/Sternberg Press.

Three public lectures and four public seminars constitute the programme Cartographies of Acting Pedagogically: Working with Liquid Logic in TENT and is developed by Prof. Dr. Frans-Willem Korsten (course tutor Master Education in Arts), in cooperation with Priscila Fernandes.
