Artist Joar Nango and director Ken Bongo interpret 3 TIFF themes in their mini series, "Post-Capitalist Architecture TV vol4 @ TIFF."
Live at Stortorget on Friday 22 January!
Renowned Tromsø artists Joar Nango and director Ken-Are Bongo are creating their own digital TV series where they introduce their home and local environment in Sápmi. They travel through snow-covered landscapes with a mobile TV studio in their red sprinter and snowmobile. Along the way, they meet guests over a campfire coffee cup, such as academic researchers, craftsmen and activists. They explore popular construction techniques for large-scale political power structures that form the basis of the social structure in the north. Nango & Bongo takes us to the Post-Capitalist Architecture Universe (Pca-TV) and the ongoing study of architecture after the fall of capitalism.
In 2020, the Sami artist and architect Joar Nango was this year's festival artist in Bergen. Together with Ken Are Bongo, they produced 3 episodes of PCA-TV for Bergen Kunsthall. During TIFF 2021, they present three short episodes that are specially produced for the festival.
The themes for Nango and Bongo's TIFF Digital series, Pca-TV vol. 4 are:
The Arctic urbanity - community
Monster mast power - belongingness
Gumpien's birth story - mobile homes
These episodes will be available digitally on tiff.no during the festival.
On Friday January 22, the project will end with a fantastic live show from the main square in Tromsø, during which highlights from the TIFF episodes will be presented in the presence of Joar Nango and Ken Bongo. There will also be a conversation with the artists following the screening of the series.
