"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Benjamin Franklin wrote Friday the 13th of November 1789. On Friday the 13th 2018 I am not so sure death and taxes are that certain anymore, and the question what is even real is not rhetoric.

Graduating from an art education is an uncertain moment, for these artists this uncertain moment coincides with uncertain times. In the exhibition Friday the 13th Masoud Alireza, Samet Bayat, David Breida, Samuel Brzeski, Julia Cremers, Ruben Eikebø, Robin Everett, Sigrid Fivelstad, Floriane Grosset, Anna Gruneau, Renate Synnes Handal, Anniken Jøsok Hessen, Ariadne Iribarren Irigoyen, Charlotte Jonsmyr, Iben Isabell Krogsgaard, Laurie Lax, Maria Lystrup, Lucila Mayol, Hanne Maren Meldahl, Anita Rufus Pamer, Sara Plantefève-Castryck, Susanne Quist, Noëlie de Raadt, Øystein Skråstad, Dafna Staretz, Martin Stråhle, Marianne Toppe and Brynhild Winther provide calls to action, space for reflection, context, and a fresh perspective. In this multitude of artistic voices I am sure you will find someone speaking to you. They ask numerous questions, and never rhetorically.

Can I have your attention? What do we remember? How do we see? How can we forget? What was the future? Who is in charge? Do you have time?
