Artist in Residence – 2011

During fall 2011 the Norwegian duo Rakett: Åse Lövgren and Karolin Tampere will have a Iaspis residency in Umeå. Rakett often take an interest in issues concerning city planning and democratic processes. Since 2009 they have been working with COMMON LANDS, which took place in Bjørvika, Oslo during 2009 – 11. Bjørvika is the former harbour area of the City of Oslo, currently under major development and construction. The ongoing development will reconstruct the former industrial harbour into a site for commercial enterprises, living, working and recreation. Bjørvika will become a new part of the city center with a strong cultural presence with the newly built Opera and the relocated Munch-Stenersen Museum to be built in the area.


During their stay in Umeå they will meet local artists, investigate Umeås plans for 2014 and the city. They are also invited as guest curators in VITA KUBEN at Norrlandsoperan.
