Babel’s main task is to present LKV’s guest artists. Every year 12- 18 artists from all over the world come to Trondheim and work here for 1-3 months. This means that Trondheim’s art public now have direct access to a great variety of international and experimental art.
Babel also presents exhibitions and events in collaboration with other institutions, arenas and artists. The program is put together by the project leader for Babel
with help from a small group of artists at LKV.
The name “Babel” was chosen primarily with respect to the guest artist – the
idea is that a dversity of languages is a positive thing, a blessing for humankind- and
not negative. Every language represents one way of seeing the world. This is also valid
for art as a language for communication. We hope that we can contribute a little to
the ‘Babel’ in Trondheim’s art life.
Babel are supported by the Trondheim municipality (kommunen), Sør-Trøndelag county (fylkeskommunen) and The Norwegian Arts council (Kulturrådet).
