The installation MMMMM…Alone (of all her sex) will serve as a platform for discussions, talks and new artworks open for interaction with the public. It will feature visual and audible artworks, performances, readings, a collection of texts in a publication, lectures and talks all within a temporary installation in public space constructed on the premises of University of Oslo, Campus Blindern.
