Artist, curator and Managing Director of Bergen Kjøtt
Attending the Rehearsing Hospitalities programme April.
Eva Rowson is an artist, curator and Managing Director of Bergen Kjøtt, a production house, creative workplace and cultural venue in Bergen, Norway. Her curatorial work is organised around hosting, collaboration and organisational practices – focusing on how the different types of work involved are valued, and with what consequences. This research is at the core of projects including the curatorial programme “Who’s doing the washing up?”, Bergen Kunsthall (Norway) and Lighthouse (UK), 2018-19 and ‘Como imaginar una musea?’, a Catalan-Spanish-English conjuring of a feminist cultural institution (2018-19).
In my role as Director of Bergen Kjøtt, I want to actively work for more diversity not only on stage but behind the scenes. I want to champion and create a workplace which centres the ethos that all types of work should be valued with the same care and pay and agency.
