          The presentation of Kari focuses on the question, whether it is possible to visualize war, terror and pain. Many artists are again engaged in central issues of our time, political conflicts and wars. In this talk she will discuss some recent art works and projects which comment upon the difficulties or possibilities art meets reflecting political topics. With the aid of Susan Sontag’s famous essay “Regarding the pain of Others” the presentation will be framed in a historical analysis which places art, images and the pain of others in a broader perspective.

                  Almost twenty years after the “Nordic Miracle” the North is again at the top of the agenda with the New York Armory Show's 2012 Nordic focus. This was a good opportunity to spread the discussion of “Nordic” through an art exhibition and seminar in the more distant setting of Tbilisi, Georgia. The artists in the exhibition are not all Nordic by birth but have made the north their workplace and home, some are native but live and work in another Nordic country. The exhibition was organised by Snowball Cultural Productions in collaboration with Center for Contemporary Art - Tbilisi.
