Oleana traces the story of a utopian colony founded by Norwegian violinist Ole Bull in 1852 in Pennsylvania. Through a visual journey into the Scandinavian emigration to America, the project features images from archival research to describe the will, vision, hopes and desires that have united Scandinavian emigrants to America for over a century. Oleana brings historic experiences of being a Scandinavian abroad home. Alongside the images, Prof. Sigrid Lien of the University of Bergen reflects on the work in relation to Norwegian immigration in a critical text, to be published later this year.

On July 28th, creator of the project Giulia will host a webinar text to discuss the work, integrating ideas from the text by Prof. Lien. Email kai.green@nsuweb.org to receive the ZOOM link (free).

NSU 70th Anniversary!

To celebrate 70 years of NSU’s activism and scholarship, in 2019 we embarked upon a series of arts-research projects which reflected the history of NSU and wider expressions of ‘Nordic’ values. From print-making to sound art, to VR installations and performances, our ten artists have been using every artistic-research-method under the sun!
