The goal with the “Springbrett” project is to raise the competence of young and early career curators and artists, whilst offering valuable museum experience at an international level. The project has received a grant of NOK 3 million from the Sparebank DNB Foundation. The Jury has unanimously agreed to award the inaugural edition of Springbrett to a curator with a proposal that was both intellectually rigorous and poetic.

The Springbrett OPEN CALL 2024 recipient is Noor Bangu.

‘Has My Place Forgotten Me?’ is a collection-based group exhibition, employing migrant aesthetics to visualize pressing questions around place-making and belonging. With works from the Christen Sveaas’ Art Foundation as a starting point, this exhibition will bring together artists working across diverse locales, histories, and media, reflecting on the field of migrant aesthetics. Returning to sites of movement and change, ‘Has My Place Forgotten Me?’ will critically study the category of the aesthetic through various acts and affects of migration.
