The 3,14 Live program is developed in conjunction with the exhibitions we present, forming a backdrop for the theme of the events.

In a world that is experienced as complex and caricatured at the same time, we see it as important to give voice to projects that have a direct or indirect sensemaking function. Kunsthall 3,14 sees its job as an art institution to serve artistic and free thought: it is through reflection that we can put actions to test. We are looking for artistic, free and independent projects that help build up the conditions that enable us to see what is happening in the world, anchored in the local community of Bergen. ​3,14


3,14 Live is curated by our debate editor Gitte Sætre. Please contact her if you have any questions or proposals

Below  a list of upcoming and past events.

PRØVEROMMET at Kunsthall 3,14

at Kunsthall 3,14

Monday May 9th, 2022, 19:00-21:00

This Prøverommet takes place during one evening at the non-profit International Contemporary Art institution Kunsthall 3,14, bringing together several new projects that involve sound, music, dance and photography by: Shelmith Øseth, Eivor Slågedal, Nising, Gisle Nataas and Siavash Kheirkhah.

  • Shelmith Øseth is a 21 year old freelance dancer, based in Bergen. The project Shelmith will present is inspired by a poem is about our inner child.

  • Eivor Slågedal will present ‘I blǿmingjinn’, a performance and musical ritual. The audience is invited to bring an object to the ritual (a flower, pinecone, leaf - anything you associate with spring).

  • Nising is somewhere between a solo act, a person and a band, playing dreamy and eclectic indie folk. He will play new music stripped down to the simplest components – voice, mouth harp and kalimba.

  • Gisle Nataas will perform ‘Fehn/2’ alongside Signe Schineller and Camilla Nneka Inalu, using recordings from a Sverre Fehn building and the journey to Bergen, mixed with sounds from Kunsthall 3.14. 

  • Siavash Kheirkhah is going explore the concepts of distance and presence of body through presenting his ongoing photo-installation project ('Paradise of Zahra'), which evolves around the death rite of Iran.

Velkommen til lanseringen av SPRANG


Torsdag 10. februar, 2022, 19.00 til 20.00

at Kunsthall 3,14

En samtale mellom Hilde Hauan og Maia Urstad, moderert av Anne Marthe Dyvi.


Publikasjonen SPRANG presenterer den fiberoptiske lydinstallasjonsserien «SPRANG» av Maia Urstad og Hilde Hauan.

Nærmest ved en tilfeldighet oppdaget Maia Urstad og Hilde Hauan en interessant kobling mellom to så tilsynelatende ulike verdener som Pytagoras’ lære og den eldgamle vevteknikken sprang. Dette ble en ledetråd for utviklingen av installasjonsserien SPRANG, et flerårig samarbeid med basis i lyd og fiberoptikk.

Sprang er et urgammelt håndarbeid som har vært kjent i Norden siden bronsealderen. Teknikken er en måte å lage stoff på ved å håndtere parallelle tråder som er spent opp vertikalt. Disse trådene krysses om hverandre på en bestemt måte, og et likt mønster framkommer oppe og nede som et resultat av at renningen er fast i begge ender.

Småtinget som kom Stortinget til unnsetning

Tirsdag 30. november, 2021, kl. 19.-21.
på Kunsthall 3,14


3,14LIVE inviterer til gratis visning av Thomas A. Østbye klimatriologi 'Enhver har rett til'. Østbye er en av de mest særpregede og originale stemmene i norsk kort- og dokumentarfilm i dag. Etter filmen blir det en samtale, hvor Sveinung Arnesen og Benedicte Brun innleder.

3,14LIVE er arrangementet til Marianne Morild sin utstilling "Septentrionalis".

I filmen 'Enhver har rett til' blir vi tatt med inn i århundrets rettssak, da norske miljøorganisasjoner anklager den norske stat for brudd på miljøparagrafen 112. På kort tid evner filmen å framstille en kompleksitet i denne saken med en observerende form og argumentasjon fra begge sider. Filmen får oss til å reflektere over miljøsakens plass i politikken.

Hva betyr et rettsvern for nature, miljø og klima?

Friday November 26th, 2021 19:00-20:00

at Kunsthall 3,14

Book launch of Kwestan Jamal Bawan´s new book "Tegninger / Drawings 1980 – 2021", with text contributions by Lars Elton, Carlos Capelán, and Bjørn Inge Follevaag.

Lars Elton will have a conversation with the artist during the book launch.

The encounter with a larger art public opens the story to yet another reality: Kwestan Jamal Bawan’s art becomes a representation of something larger than the individual artist’s expression and development. In her story we can read several parallel stories, upsetting disparities, basic cultural differences and political conflicts. But Kwestan’s story is also a tale of how conflicts, differences and adversity can be overcome through personal courage, endurance, an ability to develop and adapt, plus a will and ability to seek reconciliation.

Kwestan Jamal Bawan’s art is fascinating because it has so many facets. She is not afraid to show where her roots lie. By exhibiting the drawings made in her youth, she points out a platform and a background of experience that – regardless of what happens – will remain with her as a fundamental part of her identity.

(excerpt from Lars Elton´s text Idyll and protest)

The performance artists from Bbeyond, Belfast, will work from the same starting points simultaneously in time and with the same materials.


The performances will begin the sessions synchronously in Bergen and in Belfast. The performances in Belfast will be streamed and projected life size alongside the Bergen performance and vice versa.

The performance artist in Bergen will be able to see the performance artist in Belfast. Thereby opening potentials for interaction between the performances from both cities. The performance context will have the exact same chair and table in both locations, in Bergen and Belfast.

"Grønne Tegninger: å snakke seg til døde"

Søndag 31. oktober 2021, kl. 14.00

på Kunsthall 3,14

Søndag 31.oktober fra kl. 14 inviterer Kunsthall 3,14 to ulike målgrupper til et performativt foredrag med kunstnerduoen Nina Slejko Blom og Conny Blom.

Arrangementet henvender seg til to forskjellige publikumsgrupper:

1.  Foreldre med barn
2.  Andre som har tid, lyst og pågangsmot

Barna som kommer, vil få muligheten til å tegne på kunstverkene til Nina og Conny Blom. Alle vil kunne ta med et signert kunstverk hjem.
Arrangementet inngår i en samtale om klima, miljø og natur utfordringene verden står ovenfor.
Foreldre opplever ofte situasjonen spesielt utfordrende. Hvilken verden kommer våre barn til å vokse opp i? Når og hvordan skal vi snakke om situasjonen med barna våre? Parallelt med tegne-verkstedet vil kunstnerne holde et performativt foredrag i rommet. Lydbilde blir et positivt forstyrrende element. Nå er det tid for å lytte til barnas rettigheter. Måtte barna være høylytte. La dem legge spor i våre ører, bevissthet og i vår kunst, sier kunstnerne selv. Det er deres fremtid vi snakker om, bråk er helt på sin plass!

(Det finnes dessverre ingen heis, men et er mulighet for å sette vogner i gangen nede.)

Arrangementet er gratis

vokal improvisasjons performance av Bodil Rørtveit

2 performancer: kl. 19.00 & 20.00


Artist, scenekunstnar og komponist Bodil Rørtveit har dei siste åra gjort seg bemerka som ein uttrykksfull, særegen vokalkunstnar med stor stemme. Ho krysser gjerne sjangergrenser frå folkemusikk via klassisk til jazz og improvisasjonsmusikk. Ho ønskar å inspirere og skape tilhørighet og har ei leikande haldning til musikken. Forholdet til naturen står sterkt i prosjekta hennar, og i denne performancen har ho på seg den unike konglekjolen laga til forestillinga RØYST. Ho vil improvisere vokalt med inspirasjon frå utstillinga Irresistible Earth av Rina Banerjee på 3,14 og bruke konglene som lydelementer. Kjolen er designet av Silje Sandodden Kise og sammen med kostymesyer Julie S. Jensen har hun lagt ned over 150 arbeidstimer i denne kreasjonen.

Ho samarbeidar ofte med scenekunstnarar i prosjekta sine, blant anna i plastkonsertforestillinga Sustain (framført på Festspillene i Bergen, og med Bergen Filharmoniske Orkester). Våren 2021 hadde ho premiere på Det Vestnorske Teateret med soloforestillinga "RØYST -eller Bodil sluttar med innestemme". Rørtveit har under pandemien skapt konseptet "Hengekøyekonsert", der publikum lytta til musikken og fuglesang i hengekøyer i skogen. Denne konserten blei vist igjen under Festspillene i Bergen 2021, til gode kritikkar.

Du må ikke sove

19.08.2021, 19:00 -21:00


med Frode Berg, Niels Fastrup og Dag Steinfeld

'Du må ikke sove' er sideprogrammet til Indrė Šerpytytė utstilling ‘Bygg som tidligere tilhørte NKVD – MVD – MGB og KGB’ som handler om institusjonaliserte overvåkning og sier noen om tidligere systemer, ideologier, regjeringer, kulturer og teknologier og hvordan de endrer seg over tid.

'Du må ikke sove' referanse til Arnulf Øverlands dikt som en av våre gjester Dag Steinfeld leste under åpningen av Gestapo museet i Bergen tidligere i sommer.

Ti år har Indrė brukt på denne installasjonen - et kunstnerisk etterretningsarbeid som muligens kan sees på som en form for botsøvelse. Hennes far jobbet for den sovjetiske etterretningen så detter er personlig for henne. Tematikken er også svært personlig for side-programmets helt spesielle gjester: Frode Berg, Dag Steinfeld og Niels Fastrup. I likhet med installasjonen som fyller vårt lokale skal det denne torsdagen gis oppmerksomhet til hvordan verdifull informasjon samles om enkeltindivider for å innføre statlig kontroll og begrensninger av individets frihet.

Linn Cecilie Ulvin - Metanoia natt - pre


Linn Cecilie Ulvin

10. juni kl. 18:30

Regnbuedagene: Performance på BENKENE TIL KIM og Kunsthall 3,14

I anledning Lina Viste Grønli sin skulptur tilegnet Kim Friele på Vågsallmenningen blir det arrangert performancer på plassen under Regnbuedagene 5., 10. og 12. juni.

Sted: Benkene til Kim, Vågsallmenningen (via Pride House), samt på fasaden til Kunsthall 3,14 på Vågsallmenningen 12, mellom 10. - 25. juni

   'Når natta kommer etter metanoia handler det kanskje mer om drøm enn om rituale,

   om forelskede som møtes i hemmelighet, på tvers av klasse, etnisitet og kjønn,

   om det  som gjør de elskende uforutsigbare, - å ikke lenger være bundet til noen 

   kontrakt, åpne for endring.'

Linn Cecilie Ulvin presenterer en performance, der Ulvin fremfører en tale basert på et nyskrevet tekstverk. Store bannere som inneholder utdrag av teksten som fremføres, vil ramme inn plassen. En gruppe deltagere vil bære bannerne, og delta i fremførelsen. Metanoia, fra gresk, betyr opprinnelig endring, å forandre tanke eller mening.

Performancen vil, etter at Ulvin og aktørene har forlatt plassen, fortsette å være en del av det offentlige rommet i Bergen på fasaden til Kunsthall 3,14 frem til den 25. juni.

Performancen er kuratert av Maya Økland og produsert av Gunnbjørg Johannessen/Syv Mil AS.

Støttet av KORO, Kulturrådet og Fritt Ord.

Klimafestivalen § 112 Bergen

POP-UP exhibition


12. & 13.06.2021, 12:00 -16:00


Kunsthall 3,14 has entered into a collaboration with a group of students at the Art Academy in Bergen to create a two-day Pop-up exhibition in dialogue with the seventh edition of Klimafestivalen§112.

We greatly appreciate collaboration, content, and playful mobilisation to encourage increased community involvement. Together, we like to inspire social and lifestyle changes to build a sustainable society. Together we celebrate the positive side of the politics of change. We know that science is analysing our environmental crisis, but it is through the cultural field and the work of artists that these challenges can be materialised in compassionate, radical, humorous and urgent ways. We maintain, chances are high that it is in human culture that the questions and answers lie.

3,14 has invited the artists of the future to participate in responding to this most pressing of issues.


Benedikte Bergevik, Livi Meltaus, Jonas Erboe Rasmussen, Line Rolf, Lovisa Ljungberg Carlström, Lukas Moland, Maisen Pedersen, Simon Sebastian Galsgaard Laumann, Sofie Gustafsson Markinhuhta, Christine Bouché and Mia Carl.

Something meaningful will happen physically in an art space near you.

Visning av dokumentarfilm ‘Bjørneboe- Det Ondes Problem’

Tordag 4. mars, 19.00-21.00

Kunsthall 3,14 har gleden av å invitere til visning av dokumentarfilmen ‘Bjørneboe- Det Ondes Problem’ av regissør Terje Drageseth.

Jens Bjørneboe talte for de svake i samfunnet- de undertrykte og usynlige. Bjørneboe viet også sitt liv til å påpeke maktens misbruk av makt og mangler. Jens Bjørneboe & det ondes problem er en svært relevant film å vise i en tid der politikk, komplekse og uforutsigbare verdensbilder preger livene våre. En film som egner seg svært godt for videre samtale. Hvordan møter oss selv, hvordan står til ansvar og se det som har formet seg for å rettferdiggjøre våre liv.

Tre av våre store forfattere og to av våre fremste filosofer møttes i august 2020 for å snakke om og å diskutere roman-triologien ‘Bestialitetens historie’. Samtalen ble til dokumentarfilmen 'Jens Bjørneboe og Det Ondes Problem'- Resultatet ble til et verdig portrettbilde av Bjørneboe.

Ruškkodit  and Absent Presence

06.11.2020 - 21.02.2021

An exceptional film was made during the exhibition period to mediate the artworks of Britta Marakatt-Labb, Hilde Hauan Johnsen, Kiyoshi Yamamoto, and Marie Skeie. The purpose of the film was to capture the concept, content, and site-specific mood of the exhibition. It was making the audience able to receive a more complete experience of the show if they did not have the chance to see it due to the Covid-19 situation or only by not being in Bergen.   To achieve this, the musician Georg Buljo was invited to compose a joik for this exact exhibition. The subtitles in the film is part of the curatorial text written by Malin Barth. Filmed by the cinematographer Ben Speck and edited by Wessam Hachicho.  Produced by Motaz Habbash. Sponsored by Norwegian Associaton for Art and Craft and Kunsthall 3,14.


Absent Presence

06.11.2020 - 21.02.2021
Digital program

Paralell to the exhibition Ruškkodit follows the extended sideprogram Absent Present. Curated by Motaz al Habbash.

Absent Presence is taking place digitally and uses the opportunity to bring voices from Palestine to the art community in Bergen. We are happy to make it possible for us to get to know works and practices that even without the Covid-19 would be very difficult to get out of Palestine due to the Israeli occupation.

24-25 Oktober




The Dance will premiere during Oktoberdans 2020, with a limited audience of 20 people per performance. This multidisciplinary, collaborative performance will be an intimate manifestation of the topics discussed in the streamed episodes of The House [Digital], and mirrors the discussions of The Festival. The audience will join nine transgender protagonists on a journey of erasing the boundaries between trans/not trans, performers/audience and stage/home, and experience the performance in first person. Playing with ideas of reality and fiction, consequences of choices, and what bodies are represented on stage, the performance proposes another way of producing beauty and generating desire. The Dance wishes to include, involve and acknowledge the society as a whole, and create a space where we have the courage to enter into the darkness and colour each other’s’ grey areas. In times of physical distancing, we aim for other forms of intimacy.


Protagonists: Christer André Gudmundsdottir, Koyote Millar, Isak Bradley, Bart Bloem Herraiz, Tonje Havstad, Joakim Eide, Barry de Bruin, Daniel Mariblanca


The Dance will premiere 24–25 October 2020 during the festival Oktoberdans in Bergen.

#WeAreMillions, a classical activistic photo exhibition and a campaign to demonstrate global support for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.

Andre Smoge is a local young man who has made his first carton about sustainability and we thought it perfect to include at this point in time!

The cartoon 'Andy Rocket and the Flying Fish' was designed and written by the Bergen-based Andre Smoge. The main character in the first episode is a 'Fjord Comboy'. He ends up owning a large and beautiful greenhouse that comes floating in the sea and at first, glance looks like a fish. At one point Andy Rocket ends up by the pier in Bergen. At this point he has fallen in love with the greenhouse, he has moved in and lives a self-sufficient happy life. Andy Rocket's life undergoes a great deal throughout the cartoon and we as readers learn a lot through what the protagonist himself is doing. Like, Nikola Tesla and Tibetan Levitation Inventions and how we can build a water purification system ourselves when we can't trust the system.

The comic Andy Rocket and the Flying Fish, episode I is 45 pages long and was produced over 50 days, and was completed the day before its launch at Kunsthall 3.14 in conjunction with the opening of the main exhibiton EVENT HORIZON.

A smoky fresh ink talking about exactly what we are all pondering hard these days. What happens now?

Curated by Performance Art Bergen/Gitte Sætre 

The framework for the performance event in Daniel Wurtzel exhibition 'Shitstorm' talks about the human impact on the environment. Environmental challenges are difficult to relate to, but art can make it easier for us to mobilize and act. And the
 installation in the gallery space at Kunsthall 3.14 gives a human scale to something big and abstract.

Artists often create worlds of fiction in order for us to get to know, what we do not yet know. 


Being a performance artist in Norway is perhaps one of the freest positions one can imagine. Kunsthall 3.14 together with Performance Art Bergen challenged the local performance scene through an Open Call with the question: what do they want to communicate?

In Norway, we declare #MeToo to be wide and deeply structured.

#MeToo has hit the public debate so hard that people in power are losing their positions in high numbers. It seems like something is happening and it seems to us that it´s NO mayfly. However, we live in Scandinavia a region said to be the most progressive democratic society where women are more equal to men than in other places around the world. Kunsthall 3.14 wrote former exhibitors around the world and asked how the #MeToo campaign is received in their countries.


We formulated three questions and send an e-mail to 15 artists covering all corners of the world and with their permission we post the comments.

Brandon LaBelle is in collaboration with Kunsthall 3.14 doing a series of rough seminars, resulting in an exhibition to open October 2018. The Imaginary Republic looks at questions of public life and civic culture in today’s global environment, and how recent economic, social, and political unrest have led to an intensification of grass-roots initiatives, artistic activism, and forms of public commoning – what Stavros Stavrides terms “communities in movement”. The project aims to consider strategies for creative instituting and independent social configurations. Within this framework, questions about the public good and commonwealth are brought forward, allowing for a deeper inquiry into how art may work to reconstitute public power.


Seminar #2 is led by Ekaterina Sharova (art historian, curator, producer, educator) who will present her current research devoted to folk culture in Northern Russia, seen in the light of L. Vygotsky, J. Beuys, P. Bourdieu and P. Freire.

The children make sense of making nice things that others can hold in their hands and bring home. A macabre thing in many ways, but most of all, it's a small act in a big tale.


The money from the sale helps children through the winter and is an investment in the future!

On the evening of the annual cultural night in Bergen the artist performed between 18:00-19:30 and 20:30-22:00 inviting the audience to participate in the work by taking threads from their own hair and embroidering a new work in the presented canvas. Throughout the evening the artist also performed by embroidering on her work while the audience is present.


Since autumn 2014, the artist has collected hair from her daughter's hairbrushes and then embroidering these coal-black hair threads on white textiles. For the artist, hair represents humanity and social taboos in different cultures.
