Irit Rogoff, Stefano Harney, Adrian Heathfield, Massimiliano Mollona, Louis Moreno and Nora Sternfeld formed freethought in 2011.
freethought aims to blur the boundaries between thought, creativity, and critique and meld them into a trans-language practice, working with and as artists and knowledge producers. Moving across disciplines and genres to experiment with new combinations of criticism and practice in the arts, freethought also strives to place these new models in unexpected contexts.
freethought is an Artistic Director of the 2016 Bergen Assembly, Norway. For the Bergen Assembly, freethought will focus on its current collective interest: Infrastructure. The individual and collective research of the members of freethought will culminate in a programme of exhibitions, discursive platforms, publications and artistic commissions opening for the Bergen Assembly in September 2016.
