The final event in this year’s public programme is the London launch of the Oslo Architecture Triennale. Having previously held launches in Oslo and Venice, the team of curators chosen to have their final launch in London at the AA as part of the London Festival of Architecture. Joining two of the five curators Marina Otero Verzier and Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco around the table are Nabil Ahmed, Lindsay Bremner, Katya Larina, Dámaso Randulfe and Diploma 4 Unit Masters John Palmesino and Ann-Sofi Ronnskog of Territorial Agency.
Focusing on the theme of the Triennale, After Belonging, the discussion between the group of architects and spatial practitioners will reflect on one of the selected proposals by Nabil Ahmed and Dámaso Randulfe from the International Call for Intervention Strategies. Nature, Labour, Land: A Public Spatial Archive for Kirkenes seeks to produce a forum of discussion for the construction of a new eco-political Arctic governance by operating on three negotiations in the region: the melting of the Arctic ice (Nature), the expected global shipment along the Northeast Passage (Labour), and the indigenous conception of the territory (Land).
