NOGOODS is a moving project space for slippery ideas, repeating failures, collapsing structures, liquid narratives, and cross-disciplinary moods.
It is a space for performative discursive practice, artistic production, non-linear research, and collaboration.
Our focus lies on the impact of architecture and performativity on social patterns within a queer theoretical framework. We are interested in practices that question power dynamics through architectural interventions, assemblage, conversation, or social practices.
Through the upcoming months, we will propose a discursive program experimenting with and reflecting on space and performativity.
As a temporary space, we hope to keep these doors open until Summer 2022.
NoGoods is a studio and project space run by Maike Statz and Danja Burchard at King Oscars Gate 45, 5017 Bergen.
Graphic Design by Vera Gomes.
