TEXST presents: "Vooks are stupid!"
Vooks are stupid! promises to animate the library in a celebratory manner, through a multiplicity of voices. We imagine the library, a physical resource, beginning to rumble in preparation for the move!
11 interventions, performances and installations occupy this migrating platform temporally (2hrs) and spatially (inside & out). All works are refined at TEXST meetings, or developed from discussions and provocations posed by the group during the spring semester 2017.

TEXST are an informal and self-directed group of MA Fine Art students with guests from outside the programme.
Identifying a gap for writing based tuition and critical discussion, we created our own framework.
MA1 Fine Art students plus anyone else interested are invited on a continual basis.
We acknowledge that all artists use text in one way or another.
We meet every two weeks.
You do not have to commit but there are a core group of regulars.
We test text, writing and words in any and every possibility.
There is no fixed format.
The forum itself is open for discussion.
Individuals bring poems, statements, proposals, titles, artist writings, etcetera.
You do not have to bring anything to the group.
We take note of everything spoken about.
Each semester, we compile a zine of our activity.
The event took place at 11 May 2017 at KMD Library, Bergen-Norway.
