Screen City Biennial (SCB) is the first Nordic Art Biennial dedicated to the expanded moving image. It presents artworks that explore the relation between image, sound, new technologies, public and digital spaces. The architecture of the city facilitates an exhibition of new formats and the use of moving images in contemporary artistic practices. The program combines exhibitions, screenings, installations in public spaces, a talk program and the research platform SCB Journal. The Biennial presents, explores and expands the moving ‘image’ as a radical temporal art form along established and experimental artistic trajectories and in critical dialogue with the current urban sphere and context in the city.

Screen City Biennial was established in Stavanger, Norway. SCB is mobile and rotates between cities, in close collaboration with local and international art institutions and organizations. The next edition will take place in 2022 and in Oslo.

For the 2019 Biennial edition, titled Ecologies – lost, found and continued, Stavanger harbor was an important focus for production and presentation of the art. The Biennial presented moving image artworks from a broad range of international artists in dialogue and conjunction with the urban sphere and context in the city of Stavanger. Ecologies – lost, found and continued was curated by Daniela Arriado and Vanina Saracino.

In 2019, SCB sets out to present, facilitate and examine art and artistic inquiry that raise questions of how human action affects the ecologies with which it is implicated. With the theme, Ecologies – lost, found and continued, the Biennial engages a post-anthropocentric worldview: it searches for ecologies that may be ‘lost’ to the dominant imaginary of the modern, rationalized Western society and found in what by some is considered to be the peripheries of this.

The 2019 edition supported the production of several new artworks for Stavanger’s public space, in locations such as Domkirken (Stavanger Cathedral), Concert Hall, Norwegian Petroleum Museum, Utenriksterminalen (International terminal), Rødne Fjord Cruise, Stavanger Airport Sola, Torget (City Square), Fiskepiren (Ferry Terminal), Stavanger Art Museum and Mosvannet Park.
