Dynamics of darkens in the North
Art and academic event at the Nordic House Reykjavik
February 26th-28th, 2015 REYKJAVÍK
The United Nations has declared 2015 the International Year of Light and thus we are curious to explore the infinite choreographies of darkness and light that affect everyday experiences of people inhabiting the North. The aim of this scientific and artistic, multidisciplinary international conference is to bring together different perspectives and to create conversations between different groups of audiences, ranging from students and academics to artists and the general public.
