The Parallel Action investigates institutional critique as a genre and combines performative strategies with anti-movement history to create a platform for counter strategy within the closed perimeter of participants. PA reflects upon the production of knowledge as a means to subjugate life, the individual’s desire for personal freedom, autonomy and justice – discussing possibilities of emancipation from inherent cultural and political dogmas.

The Parallel Action is a collaboration between Leander Djønne, Anders Smebye, Snorre Hvamen and Anders Dahl Monsen.
