Patchwork Studio // Lappeteppe-TV

In January, OCA's exhibition ‘Actions of Art and Solidarity’ opened at the Kunstneres Hus with the commissioned work A patchwork of solidarity stories as one of the many featured works. The patchwork consists of a physical patchwork, a sound archive and a collection of texts in a catalogue, and it is a collective project carried out by the Solidarity Committee of Latin America in Norway (LAG).

Sound Archive

LAG broadcasted live from within the exhibition at the Kunstnernes Hus, to give the audience a mistica, a tour of the exhibition, a presentation of the project, live music, poetry as well as talks from many of the patch-makers who shared the micro-narratives each patch represents.

NB! Most of the programme is in Norwegian.
