Luleå Biennial 2020:
Time on Earth

Information regarding Covid-19

The Luleå Biennial 2020 closely follows the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations and the development around Covid-19. We want you to feel safe during your visit and therefore urge all our visitors to keep a safe distance from others, maintain good hand hygiene and to stay at home if you feel the least bit sick. There is hand disinfectant available in the exhibitions. We disinfect surfaces and the exhibition spaces are thoroughly cleaned continuously. The Biennial continues until 14 February 2020. Subject to change of the current restrictions we will return with updated information.

To plan your visit in advance, please book a time slot for each exhibition at Billetto. Drop in is only possible as far as space allows.

Thank you for your understanding and stay safe!

Radio 65.22 is an auditory cross section of the biennial’s theme and contents, which amplifies and makes accessible written texts, framed situations and artistic voices. Radio 65.22 also enables an encounter with chosen parts of the Luleå Biennial’s activities for those who cannot experience the biennial in situ.

With Radio 65.22, we want to inscribe ourselves into an experimental and exploratory radio tradition, where the media itself becomes a platform for our ideas on radio and its capacity to depict and mirror the world around us. The task of Radio 65.22 is to tell of reality, in further ways that may not be possible through the image or the text.

Under Fragments: Time on Earth you will find radio programmes and sound pieces in different genres and forms that reflect this year’s biennial in various ways. Spirit of Place is a touring series of literary conversations on language and place. The culture journalist Kerstin Wixe takes us along to places that have played a significant part in an author’s stories, or carries the story’s history. Woven Songs is a deepening series of radio programmes that accentuate singing, the voice and the role of storytelling in the creation of new world views and orders.

Listen, reflect, enjoy!
