Objectives and Content

Synsmaskinen is an artistic research conglomerate based at the Institute of Art at the

University of Bergen. Synsmaskinen proposes a multifaceted inquiry into contemporary

crises. Through a variety of interrelated artistic projects, a politically-charged horizon

comes into focus: apocalyptic abysses, systemic entanglements, and hyper-complex


In 4 talkshows Synsmaskinen now attempts a final overview. Organised around


draw lines and content form the 7 research projects and the vast mesh of

research material accumulated in the 3-4 years existence of Synsmaskinen.

The 4 talkshows are aimed at the MA-program at the Institute of Art and the

PHD-program at KMD, but are open to all KMD students, all KMD staff and

visitors for outside as well.

The Perception Machine Crisis Conglomerate is funded by

PKU and KMD.
