We shall particularly discuss the northern artscene, but also present an overall picture. We shall participate at the festival Barents Spektakel, we shall meet artists working at the borderline – politically,  in genres or geografically. We shall visit different galleries in Murmansk and in St. Petersburg, we will get lectures about contemporary art and we shall meet free speech guardians on both sides of the national border.
