For Oslo World’s 2018 theme of Freedom, STATION presents NextStopDamascus, featuring a program that seeks to capture the vital energy and cultural richness of Syria at a time when its artists are most fragile, perceptions are most clouded and the need for alternative perspectives most pressing. The art exhibition Oslo World Exhibition: Relentless Images features Syrian and international visual artists, and is co-curated by Studio Khaled Barakeh in Berlin, in collaboration with the online platform SYRIA Cultural Index. The exhibition runs all week at Kulturhuset in Oslo, with a special full-day takeover program on Saturday Nov 3rd. We will wrap NextStopDamascus in Oslo with a live electro set by Shkoon at Jaeger.
