“What happens if we use beauty as a criterion for sustainability in life and work? Or in the triangle of economy, ecology, and community? Beauty is not a word often used in art criticism today. Perhaps we could borrow from the sciences, where beauty or elegance is associated with great utility and a sense of the inevitable in the way in which ideas fit together and a new theory is created. What links could we pursue in this dialogue between science, the arts, the environment and the health of society as a whole? This is the theme that we would like to examine in a five hour long conversation in a quiet and comfortable room of Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo. The dialogue will be a unique experiment of bringing together and encouraging a gentle meeting of minds and views.”
