short on oslo 
back in oslo on my way to bodø.
Looking forward to the interview and to see how they will respond to my ideas on how one can develope Art in Nordland further.

But oslo:
there is a number of exhibitions in oslo that is interesting to see - but the one at UKS is not one of them - althouh it was sort of strange to notice that this wall piece of Elin Wikström:

Better for A, without B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P Getting it Worse. Better for B, without A, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P Getting it Worse etc.
The project is an experiment in accumulation and disposal of resources. Its point of departure is the different realities and everyday life situations of the participants and it tests an economical system built on justice and
solidarity.
16 persons participate in the project. Once a month each participant contributes with 250 SEK*, which is put in a pot. All participants receive the full pot on 4000 SEK** one time during the 16 months of the project.
*250 SEK=26, 47 €
**4000 SEK=423, 47€

Better for A, without B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P Getting it
Worse. Better for B, without A, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P Getting it Worse etc.
Wall text

had a spelling error in it ( Better for B, without A, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O and P Getting it Worse etc. had a extra ´B´ in it)


But the Dieter Roth exhibition at Galleri Riis was rather interesting. Although being more a museum exhibition than what I think is appropriate for Roth, it was very nice to see a exhibition in Oslo of a well know European artist that obviously have influenced many artists in Norway directly or indirectly - outside any of the over curated museums here.

Exhibitions in Leipzig worth seeing 
thats easy; there are only two of them:
Tina Schulz at GfZK and the group exhibition From Brooklyn at Dogenhaus Galerie. It looks like the Director, Jochen Hempel is more at home in his new, industrial, 300sqm, space. Of the three exhibitions that have been so far I have only seen two and both has museums quality over them.
