Our Manifesto

.ZIP collective is a new non-profit artist-run association established in October 2018 in Bergen by Noëlie de Raadt, Floriane Grosset, Anniken Jøsok Hessen, Charlotte Jonsmyr, Dafna Staretz and Sara Plantefève-Castryck. We are a group of 6 Master graduates from the Faculty of Fine Art of the University of Bergen.

Our collective is located in an old kindergarten space in the centre of town. It has shared studio spaces, a common space with a kitchen, and a project room/gallery for exhibitions and experimentations.

We hope to create an art space which will be an integral part of the art scene in Bergen. A space for exhibitions, workshops, performances, collaborations and other events open to the public.

We will focus on supporting newly established artists, offering them a space to exhibit and work in. We are also working on establishing a darkroom for photographers to develop analog black and white pictures.
