In this talk Professor Harald Gaski will give a brief introduction to Sámi epistemology and worldview in an attempt to guide you into understanding more of what Sámi arts and research is all about.
 

From being one of the most researched Indigenous peoples in the world, the Sámi have in recent decades taken more and more control themselves of the dissemination of information about their own culture, politics and research. Sámi language and arts have played an important role in keeping up the peoples’ self-esteem and identity.
One of the most interesting aspects of Sámi arts through the times is its multidisciplinary character, as can be seen in traditional art forms as well as in contemporary approaches to poetry, visual arts, movies and music.

Following up the latest artistic developments in Norway and in preparation for the upcoming transformation of the Nordic Pavilion into the Sámi Pavilion at the Venice Biennial 2022, commissioned by Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin wishes to provide more space for knowledge transfer and information to both arts professionals and journalists, as well as a broader public about art from Sápmi.
