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 rotate 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 2017 Biennial edition, titled Migrating Stories, explored the recent redefinition of geographies, borders and identity in relation to space and belonging. It examined how art and stories of people migrate into new forms, realities and modes of existence. SCB presented expanded moving image artworks from a broad international range of artists dealing with current complexities relating to migration. Their works reflect deeply upon journeys, diasporas and post-colonialism, transformation of place, and ‘alien’ realities. Migrating Stories was curated by Daniela Arriado and Tanya Toft Ag.

SCB 2017 supported the production of several new artworks for Stavanger’s public space, in locations such as Vågen/the harbor, Stavanger Concert Hall and the Maritime Museum.
