Aktuell #1
Azar Alsharif

NOK 200,-

Aktuell is a series of publications presenting work by contemporary artists based in Norway. A collaboration between Torpedo Press and Kunsthall Oslo, Aktuell offers compact English-language monographs on both emerging and established artists, focusing on work that has not been addressed by existing publications. Images from the artists' practice are central to the series, contextualised by commissioned essays and interviews. The title of the series, Aktuell, cannot be precisely translated into English - it can mean current, relevant, or potential. Azar Alsharif is the first publication in this series.
