Exhibition of Christian von Borries, Bergen Assembly, Liz Eve

The exhibition Monday Begins on Saturday, opened 31 August 2013 in Bergen, Norway. It presented the positions of more than 50 international artists working in a variety of media. Projects were distributed over eleven different locations in the city of Bergen, among them several buildings of the Bergen Art Museum and Bergen Kunsthall. Many projects were specially commissioned for Bergen Assembly. The project, curated by Ekaterina Degot and David Riff, took its title from the novel ‘Monday Begins on a Saturday’ by Soviet sci-fi writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky about a fictitious research institute staffed by a motley assemblage of fairytale beings and mad scientists who are trying to solve the problem of human happiness through magic. The first edition of Bergen’s new triennial was an oblique contemporary re-writing of this text as a multi-venue exhibition and book.
