Worlding Northern Art (WONA)

Worlding Northern Art is a research group based at the Department of Art History and Academy of Contemporary Art, UiT The Arctic University of Norway.   Worlding Northern Art is intended to strengthen the field of Art History and Visual Culture in the Northern Norway, incorporating curatorial practises and artistic research.

Art is conceptualised as worlding in a broad sense, referring to Tsing (2010) and Haraway, as co-operative and conflictual ways of ‘world-making’. The research is organized in thematic clusters:

  • Art and indigenous/northern peoples, transnational and global art 
  • Art and ecology, art in Northern living
  • Art as form of knowledge
