Oslo Flaneur Festival

Exploring Oslo in the summer of 2016
June 23nd – 25th June

The OSLO FLANEUR FESTIVAL is a three day celebration of the flâneur — the stroller, the explorer, the passionate wanderer, the timeless image of the human on the move, the nomad, the urban explorer, the wanderer, the new pilot of humanity in a world in rapid change. O.F.F. transforms the flaneur’s walk into action based urbanism. Together we explore not just the city, but also human wanderlust, nature and culture. The Flaneur lives inside all of us. We all recognize the lone walker and the urban explorer. The Flaneur is alone. S/he is the one who removes oneself from the world while standing right in the middle of its steaming heart. Alone – and together with all other flaneurs. During O.F.F. everyone in Oslo becomes a flaneur.

We invite proposals for talks, lectures, paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, nomadic & geoaugmented technologies, posters/exhibits, walks etc addressing the topic of the flaneur:
// The Flaneur symposium is a unique opportunity to present and discuss your work on the topic of the flaneur. We aim Osloff to become an important channel for exchange of information as well as experiences between artists, researchers and audience alike.
// The Flaneur Exhibition aims to portray the flaneur from the most engaging perspective and by any media necessary. We invite proposals involving photo, video, text, interactive technologies, sound etc.
// The Flaneur Journal will be a peer-reviewed publication based on the best of the contributions. We expect to publish the first e-book fall 2016. Call for paper abstracts: 300-500 words.
