Mobile Kultur Byrå , 2008 – now
Kirsten Dufour (artist, Copenhagen), Hilde Methi (curator, Kirkenes) and Ulrike Solbrig (artist, Berlin) have been working together in the art project Mobile Kultur Byrå since 2006. Mobile Kultur Byrå is a flexible small-scale art platform that fosters modest cultural endeavours while at the same time contemplating our own situation as cultural producers.

But it also contains clues to the persistent, prolonged difficulty that exists, if one wants to produce with a "minimum of art" (Jean-Claude Moineau), a maximum of sociopolitical effect and especially, to assert oneself actively in an art context." Rahel Puffert on MKB in her text What you see, is only a part. (pöpp68 - participation objections anyhow).
