Since its inception in 1998, MOMENTUM has strived to present compelling works of art and outstanding artistic ventures in Norway and the Nordic context. The Biennial has since become established as one of the most exciting platforms for contemporary art in the Nordic region. The ninth edition of the Momentum Biennial (M9) takes the notion of alienation as its starting point. In the term alienation the curators refer to a contemporary world where alien processes and entities are becoming an integrated part of our lives through technological, ecological and social transformations. We encounter and engage with the alien every day. Alienation is our contemporary condition. While more information and modes of communication are available to us than ever before, it is not easier to make sense of the whole. M9 addresses this confusion and insists on searching for new tools for greater understanding of the human condition through crosspollination of methods, categories and disciplines.
