Visibility 2016: Meander – konferanse om illustrasjon – Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen – Grafill

14. november 201617. november 2016

November 14–16 2016 the illustration venue Visibility will be held in Bergen. Organized by the Bergen National Academy of the Arts – for the second time.

The venue is named Meander, a growing river finding it´s new way.

Visibility started as a three days conference with lectures, workshops and debates two years ago. A main key question is what role can and must illustration play in a complex and visual overloaded society?

Bergen Academy of Art and Design has in the last few years encouraged an increased focus on illustration, and our ambition is that KHiB will be pushing the discipline boundaries, develop new expressions, adopt new formats and have a clear voice in debates.

Visibility is established to explore and challenge the field of illustration. Through workshops, which are open to students, academic staff and professional illustrators, we wish to push the illustration boundaries and norms and develop new visual expressions, and through lectures, exhibitions and debates we will discuss illustrations limits and it’s potential, with the aim of providing new insights. Visual and written material will be collected for the Visibility article series. We will provoke and inspire, shake the illustrators, zoom up at details and at the same time try to get an overview.

We aims to further develop Visibility to become an interdisciplinary research forum, as in the periods between the conferences can link centers of excellence, create debate and be a fertile ground for major research projects rooted in several institutions.
