socio-political questions. In 2010 we plan to host 3 Plenum events, by

discussions at Landmark, Bergen Kunsthall.
Piksel Plenum #1 2010 is taking place in April, and this year we work with

addition to presentations the evenings will include visual and musical
references presented through a relevant selection of media and communication
