Ny utlysning for gjestekritikere 2025/26

For tredje gang utlyser ArtScene Trondheim og Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV) nye gjesteopphold for tilreisende kritikere. Med dette løfter vi frem kritikkens betydning på kulturfeltet. De utvalgte kritikerne vil få et stipend på kr. 15 000 i tillegg til et honorert tekstoppdrag i løpet av sitt arbeidsopphold.

Kulturbyen Trondheim er i en voldsom vekst, med nye atelierfellesskap, private kunstgallerier og museer, som Rotvoll kunstnerkollektiv, Kjøpmannsgata Ung Kunst, Kunsthall Trondheim og Galleri Dropsfabrikken. Våren 2025 åpner også storsatsningen Posten Moderne. På scenekunstfeltet har Rosendal Teater etablert seg i Østbyen og Nye Hjorten Teater åpner våren 2025. Det gjør det svært aktuelt å invitere flere kritikere til byen slik at de får anledning til å fordype seg i det som foregår her.

Samtidig er kritikken som sjanger i nedgang på nasjonal basis. Som en viktig aktør for kunstkritikk i Midt-Norge ønsker ArtScene Trondheim sammen med Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder å løfte frem kritikervirket gjennom et gjesteopphold.

De aktuelle kritikerne vil få opphold og arbeidsplass i inntil en måned på Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder i Trondheim i mars 2025 eller mars 2026.  

Kritikere som skriver om sjangre som visuell kunst, scenekunst, musikk og dans er velkomne til å søke. Oppholdet kan brukes til faglig fordypning, til å bli kjent med regionens kunst- og kulturscene og skrivearbeid. Les om gjestekritikere for perioden 2021/22  og for perioden 2023/24. 

I løpet av sitt gjesteopphold skal kritikerne gjennomføre en presentasjon av sitt kritikervirke, samt skrive en tekst som publiseres på artscene.no. Teksten honoreres etter Kritikerlagets satser og kan ta form som kritikk fra regionens kunstscene, et intervju med en lokal kulturaktør eller en tekst fra kritikerens faglige interesseområde.

LKV’S ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION AT BABEL

CHRONIC PLURALISM PART 1: LKV 30 YEARS
02 – 19 November 2023

Eva Ballo, Annika Borg, Helga Bøe, Oddvar I. N. Daren, Nirmal Singh Dhunsi, Per Formo, Linn Halvorsrød, Dag Marius Hestvik, Hermann Isaksen, Farhad Kalantary, Kristina C. Karlsen, Markus Lantto, Veslemøy Lilleengen, Ann Lundström, Andrea Martinez, Tore Reisch, Solrunn Rones, Liv Rygh, Håvard Stamnes, Knut Sveen, Per Rune Vatne, Tove Weie, Anita Wollamo. 

Welcome to LKV’s anniversary exhibition Chronic Pluralism Part 1!

Opening: Thursday 02.11, 18.00–20:00

Since 1993, a total of around 150 professional visual artists have had studio space at Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV), in the building that used to be Lademoen School. 

The fact that a self-organized working community of this kind has now been in operation for 30 years is something we believe is worth celebrating. We have therefore invited all 44 current tenants at LKV, one guest artist and a small selection of former tenants to take part in an anniversary exhibition at Babel – LKV’s own exhibition space for art. There are 50 artists contributing works to the exhibition, so we have divided it into two parts to accommodate all the works. If all 150 artists were to be presented, we would have had to show at least six such densely packed anniversary exhibitions. 

In addition to marking an anniversary by celebrating the artists and their work, it is also important for us to show the great diversity in art today. Both here in Trondheim and in the studios and workshops at LKV. In this working community, everyone follows their own paths, where ‘forward in all directions’ is the order of the day. This situation is like a gift package and an open door for a curious art audience: there should be something for everyone. Welcome to the first part of the anniversary exhibition and enjoy!

– – –

The Babel Committee supports the artistic director in the execution of the exhibition program and now consists of LKV artists Anne Helga Henning, Polina Chernitskaya and Per Formo. The artistic director of Babel is Petter Buhagen.

Babel Art Space was established in 2006 and has since its opening presented around 220 exhibitions to the public. Babel is run by Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder.

Vår nye kunstneriske leder er engasjert på kunstfeltet og har en åpen og nysgjerrig tilnærming til kunst. Du har ansvar for daglig drift samt kontakt og oppfølging av utstillende kunstnere og du bidrar med erfaring fra kuratorisk virksomhet, utstillingsproduksjon og annen kunstfaglig kompetanse. Du har god oversikt over norsk og internasjonal samtidskunst. Du vil jobbe med programmering av BABEL sammen med Babelkomiteen, som består av tre kunstnere fra atelierfellesskapet Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder.

Dine strategiske evner til å ivareta og videreutvikle visningsrommet, og din evne til å formidle og spre kjennskap og entusiasme for BABEL visningsrom vil være sentral i denne stillingen. 

Ansvarsområder:

  • Kunstfaglig programmering og utstillingsproduksjon sammen med Babelkomiteen. 
  • Daglig drift av visningsrommet, herunder opplæring og koordinering av gallerivakter. 
  • Formidling og kommunikasjon av utstillinger og arrangementer.
  • Utvelgelsen av kunstnere til artist-in-residence program ved LKV sammen med en jury.
  • Planlegge, følge opp og gjennomføre styrets visjon og strategiplan for BABEL sammen med daglig leder.
  • Ivareta kunstnernes eierskap til visningsrommet og videreutvikle visningsrommet i nye lokaler, der dens rolle som formidler av samtidskunst vil bli større og tydeligere.
  • Arbeide med flytting til nye lokaler og organisering av det nye visningsrommet (2024) 
  • Arbeid med søknader, finansiering og rapportering av prosjekter og lignende.
  • Økonomi- og budsjettansvar i samråd med daglig leder.

Vi tilbyr:

  • Mulighet til å være med på å forme og utvikle en dynamisk kunstorganisasjon
  • Mulighet til å bidra til programmer som tar for seg viktige emner i vår tid
  • Mulighet til å jobbe med lokale og internasjonale kunstnere, skapere og tenkere
  • En variert og fleksibel arbeidshverdag

Stillingen er på åremål 6 år med mulighet for forlengelse. Det må påregnes å jobbe i helger og kveldstid i forbindelse med utstillingsåpninger og arrangementer.
Tiltredelse: medio august / september 2023.
Lønnstrinn tilsvarer Statens lønnstrinn mellom 49 og 53, avhengig av erfaring / kompetanse.

LKV har en liten stab bestående av en daglig leder, en kunstnerisk leder (denne stillingen), arbeidende styreleder og en renholder. I tillegg er det fire gallerivakter og i noen perioder prosjektassistenter på engasjement. Kunstnere ved LKV organiserer seg i arbeidsgrupper som bistår ansatte i driften av LKVs ulike avdelinger på frivillig basis.

Ta gjerne kontakt med styreleder Per Kristian Nygård (+47 984 90 447) eller daglig leder Rebeka Helena Blikstad (+47 484 39 356) for spørsmål knyttet til stillingen.

A new journey of a nomadic series
An exhibition attempts to advance lines
Under lines of the imprinted traces of tangible memories
Under lines of the drifts before and after
Under lines of the indulgence of hearing
Under lines of the naturally formed
Under lines of the uncontrollable (re)shaping
Under lines of the adjusted sights
Under lines of the uncertainty from the semi-translucent
An united expedition on brighter days

Course on art in social media (SoMe) 

Date: Thursday March 17
Time: 12:00 – 16:00
Venue: Lademoen kunstnerverksteder, physical attendance
For whom: Artists and small galleries
Sign up: E-mail to kurs@lkv.no by March 14 to sign up.
Participants: Max 30
Course leader: Johanne Nordby Wernø, St. Hans Kommunikasjon
Free of charge
Language: Norwegian

Social media – Facebook, Instagram and other channels for two-way communication – has become a necessary part of the toolbox for anyone who wants to reach out to the public, the press and other stakeholders.

In this course, participants learn more about the singularity of these channels, and we go through what a small business (individual artist or viewing venue) can gain from good use of them. The participants further learn how to create a simple communication plan for the business in general and get good routines for the use of social media.

The emphasis is on understanding important principles for good communication in social media and acquiring the routines for applying them well – even when you have little or no staff. Everyone gets templates and other tips for simple, but useful tools for creating and publishing good material.

We also look at examples from companies both in and outside the art field and analyze why they are effective, and the participants focus on exercises with their own actual business as a case.

The course is a collaboration between VISP and Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder and is supported by Trondheim municipality.
