Bergen Assembly seeks a director to lead the organisation into the future as one of Norway’s most vital international platforms for contemporary art.
Compiled and updated each year by UNITED for Intercultural Action, an anti-discrimination network, The List traces information relating to the deaths of 36,570 people who have lost their lives within or on the borders of Europe since 1993 due to state policies (documented as of 1 April 2019). In collaboration with Bergen Assembly 2019, the Norwegian daily metropolitan newspaper Bergensavisen disseminates The List as an insert and online today, 7 June 2019.
