We live in a time of unrest, when many are finding that freedom of expression can no longer be taken for granted. What can history teach us about present-day dilemmas? What historic backdrop would be most appropriate for present-day debates?

How have the various dilemmas involving freedom of expression been resolved in Norway and Denmark? What differences and similarities can be found between the two countries, and what can we learn from each other?

Fritt Ord invites the public to a debate on Thursday, 23 March, from 7.00-8.30 p.m. in Uranienborgveien 2, featuring lectures by Jacob Mchangama and Kjetil Jakobsen. Both have recently published books about the history of freedom of expression.
From 3 March to 1 May 2017, the House of Photography at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg will be showing photo essays by twelve extraordinary young European photographers on the theme of “Shifting Boundaries.” The artists were nominated specifically to participate in the third round of the European Photo Exhibition Award (epea), a joint project by four European foundations.

Epea aims to contribute to and to intensify dialogue within Europe, as well as to support young European photographers at the beginning of their careers. The exhibition showcases the following photographers: Arianna Arcara (Italy), Pierfrancesco Celada (Italy), Marthe Aune Eriksen (Norway), Jakob Ganslmeier (Germany), Margarida Gouveia (Portugal), Marie Hald (Denmark), Dominic Hawgood (United Kingdom), Robin Hinsch (Germany), Ildikó Péter (Hungary), Eivind H. Natvig (Norway), Marie Sommer (France) and Christina Werner (Austria).

Norwegian Journal of Photography

The Norwegian Journal of Photography was established in 2011 to serve as an arena where independent photographers who work in the interface between traditional press photography on the one hand and art photography on the other will be able to present the full scope of their projects. NJP brings together and supports selected Norwegian photographic documentary projects, and the first edition of the book was launched in February 2013.
