25 artists, as well as contributing writers and a selection of publications represented by Bergen Zines are all invited to show new productions for this group exhibition. The exhibition is initiated by Kunstnerforbundet, Norway´s first ever artist governed gallery, based in central Oslo.

This exhibition is, more than anything, a snapshot of the scene; an attempt to grasp a now through an assembly of voices representing Bergen at this particular moment in time, with all the differences this entails. In the making, diversity and a certain resistance towards conformity, has been idealized.

The title for the show is a work by Mathijs van Geest. The artist proposed to use the space of the title as exhibition space for the sentence: which is a way of saying: a word was removed. The work discusses both the format of the exhibition space, and the curators role as mediators.
