Haunted Humanity: programme


Haunted Humanity: Workshop by The Monster Network

Thursday November 29  – Friday November 30 at Stavanger Kunsthall and The University of Stavanger (UiS)

In light of so-called migratory challenges and increasing nationalism in the Nordic countries, this workshop critically engages with ongoing debates about exclusion and inclusion through the ideas surrounding monsters, ghosts and haunting. The workshop explores not only important historical contexts for how monsters emerged as justifications for discrimination and violence, but also the monstrous Others as figures that haunt the foundations of the very idea of humanity, and what it means to be human today.

To participate, email ingvil.f.hellstrand@uis.no before November 7st. The workshop is supported by the Nordic Culture point and is free of charge.

Image description: 10-15 people are covered by a large, beige/pink sheet, their heads or other limbs sticking up to make a large, many-bodied blob. In front of the blob are three school desks with paper, pens and water bottles. To the right, sunlight is coming through a window.

We’re scheming, and we want you to be part of our plans! Due to a generous grant from the Nordic Culture Point, the Monster Network will be organizing two workshops:

  • Haunted Humanity in Stavanger, Norway on 29-30 November 2018.
  • Weird Ecologies in Tampere, Finland on 4-5 April 2019.

We will soon update this website with more information about the workshops, so keep peeling those eyeballs!
