This is How I write : International online edition

The art section of the Norwegian Critics’ Association (Norsk kritikerlag) welcomes you to the
international, online edition of «This is How I Write» with the invited guests; Julia Grosse
and Estelle Nabeyrat. Moderated by philosopher, independent researcher, curator, and art
critic Sofia M. Ciel. The conversation will be held in English and streamed via Zoom (we will
soon share a link!). It is also possible to see the streamed meeting at the Kunstnernes hus

The work of the critic has been much discussed in recent years; particularly with a focus on
the critic and criticism’s increasingly vulnerable situation. The conversation series «This is
How I Write» aims to give a professional insight into the art critic’s work as a writing
practice. In 2021 and 2023, the Norwegian Critics’ Association conducted four critic talks in
Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen, and Tromsø, intending to strengthen the conversation around the
critic’s role and create a better understanding of the importance of criticism for the local art
scene in the listed cities. The international edition seeks to broaden that perspective. We
therefore invite two experienced, international critics to a conversation about their work as art
critics, and how they operate within their specific fields.
