After Belonging: In Residence is a speculative platform focused on a selection of ten sites around the globe that encapsulate current transformations of belonging. The exhibition presents ten commissioned reports and five intervention strategies—intended as two distinct and related architectural operations to approach those sites. The ten reports outline diverse ways of describing the sites, offering multifaceted perspectives and bringing together different scales. In addition, five intervention strategies have been selected for the sites located in Oslo and the Nordic region, through an international open call. These interventions design tactical and long-term forms of engagement with the sites, and rehearse alternative architectural practices.
The sites are presented in dialogue with each other in a spatial configuration that unveils connection between seemingly distant realities. The designed structure simultaneously encloses and bridges, and privileges visual encounters between spaces. It blurs traditional limits between territories, thus undermining the idea of site as defined by national boundaries and challenging the political nature of the very site it occupies: The National Museum-Architecture.
