contributors, when they browse through this issue and see their hard work. I’m therefore honoured to introduce issue 16 of The List - developed, influenced and inspired by the youth. Students at Trondheim Katedralskole, Rosenborg skole, as well as students taking part in the AFS international exchange programme, squeezed the most out of their free time after school. They found time to perform the roles of writers and photographers, creating an amazing amount of content. Content that is interesting, relevant and comes from their hearts. We wanted to know more about what the youngsters are thinking and how it feels to be a teenager living in Trondheim. We helped our youthful editorial team develop articles that tell us a lot about their perspective – how refreshing! Importantly, what they came up with is far from being reserved only for the youngest readers. You should definitely check out Alba, Leah and Elise’s articles about new circus, and Lindy Hop (page 18), to learn about activities you probably didn’t know existed in town. And for those of us who struggle to appreciate the beauty of everyday life in Trondheim, I recommend having a closer look at Maud’s column; an article in which she reminds us not to take for granted what surrounds us. Just like Stian Sandø, the host of Netwon, the popular NRK science show for kids, who also is our front page model and interviewee (see page 28), The List wants to connect with younger generations. Well, I believe we succeeded. Magalie, Maja, Silvana, Klaudia, Jéleena, Théo, Monica, Leyla, Camila, Snorre, Alba, Maura, Leah, Maud, Nikolai, Majka, Jiuyang, and Elise – thank you. It’s been a pleasure working with you. Finally, I am excited to announce the launch of our new concept, Art List, the city’s first English language, dedicated guide to museums, galleries and exhibitions held in town. Using the experience of our wonderful Art Editor, Laura-Ann Morrison, who has been producing our Art+Space pages for the past three years, we bring you an expanded art section each issue, so that you can fully appreciate the wonderful goings-on in art city Trondheim. Welcome to May.

ISSUE #16, MAY-JUNE 2017



We are entering May and June with the feeling of anticipation in our hearts as there are big things happening in Trondheim. Not only did we get the light back, but soon we will spend every spare minute hypnotized by never-ending evenings. Trondheim will host Starmus, the world’s biggest science conference, and with this issue of The List we can plan how we’re going to participate (there’s something for everyone, see our programme, pages 32-39). We also get a chance to engage in the local art scene through our new section Art List (more about this below) and test out our re-designed restaurant guide (pages 73-75). Eventually, and most importantly to me (though I might be biased!), I can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of our lovely

f o s k r The Preondheim T a g n i Be allflower W COLUMN

As the sun finally returns and the flowers force their way through the soil, Trondheim’s beauty increases with each passing day. Over the years I have learned a thing or two about this city, but until now I have never really sat down and appreciated it. How lucky am I to have grown up in this big-little city of ours? All the more noticeable at this time of year with 17 May and several other celebration days creeping closer on our calendars. If you’re from out of town your first impression will probably be how small Trondheim is compared to other, more touristy cities in Europe. But many people don’t find this to be a bad thing: because even though it is the third biggest city in Norway, it is still easy to get around town. While growing up I used to walk to school with my friends. That one-kilometer walk seemed like setting out on some great adventure at the time, but as I have grown older that usual one-kilometer route has become much larger. So much so that now I feel I know each and every brick in Trondheim. It’s also comforting to have a good transportation system in Trondheim; there for when it’s pouring rain outside. With only a quick stop to change buses you can travel almost everywhere. Transportation to choose from includes: buses, boats, or the tram. In the very heart of Trondheim City you will also find busses for travelling outside of town, and by the docks the ferry arrives and departs a couple of times a day. In the past the tram had several lines within Trondheim, today there is only Gråkallbanen. Even though there is not much left of the old tram system of Trondheim, it still contributes to the west side of the city with its charm. Trondheim has a lot of charm. My parents have always told me that staying in the city after graduating university was an easy decision. One of the reasons was because it is such a safe environment for children to grow up in. Like many other kids, my siblings and I often ran around and played in the streets, with our mom only having to look out of the kitchen window

every half an hour. Both at home and in kindergarten children learn how to safely behave in traffic and how to act if someone they know gets hurt. My parents learned to know and love Trondheim, and put great faith in my siblings, the city, and me. The worst we could experience was if one of us tripped and accidentally broke an arm. Aside from Christmas Eve and birthdays, the 17 May is the most exciting day of the year for children in Norway. Every year on this national day we celebrate our independence. Trondheim’s centre is packed with people dressed in Bunads (traditional clothes), or fancy suits and dresses. The day consists of several parades, one of them being the school parade where everyone gets the chance to show off, wave to the crowds with Norwegian flags in hand, and yell the different school slogans. The rest of the day is generally spent with ice cream and hot dogs, and trying to catch the balloons flying around. It is hard explain how much is going on during 17 May, but it is an important experience for everyone in Norway. As a teenager in Trondheim, almost everyone around you grows up doing sports. There isn’t one sport I can think of that isn’t offered here. One popular activity is skiing: both downhill and cross-country. There is an 10


expression here that every Norwegian is “born with skis on their feet”. Trøndelag has tons of places to explore the sport and enjoy the beautiful nature in it. This is one of the biggest perks of living in Trondheim – the outdoors being so close to the city. A lot of people live in, or not very far from great wooded areas, like Vassfjellet – just an hour away by bus. On the other side of the spectrum of sport, we find football. The biggest football team in the region, Rosenborg, plays at Lerkendal, a central part of Trondheim. Even though this is not Norway’s best way of showing off globally, almost everyone participates in playing football: both in school and after school. In addition to football, handball is a very popular sport in Norway, and it is one of the sports Norway does the best at internationally. Handball and football are the most popular sports, but not everyone shows off their talents while running around kicking or throwing a ball. It is common to encounter a variety of people doing different kinds of activities in Trondheim. Big parts of the younger generation are not participating in any sport, but instead are cultural activists. They participate instead in forms of art like music, writing, painting, and dancing. A lot of teenagers also partake in politics or engage in the

schools’ student organizations. Myself, I have discovered that the biggest part of the youth culture here, is to meet up. We love to hang out, drink coffee in cute coffee shops, or go looking for vintage stores. Trondheim has evolved to be an urban centre of Norway. There are close to fifty thousand students living here each year, and we have them to thank for the urban environment. Many new businesses are devoted to students: urban shops and coffee places, cheap food in the stores, and tons of different events. Even though a big part of the kids who grow up here want to depart the city and finish their education somewhere else, there are a lot that decide to stay because of the great environment in Trondheim. Trondheim has many great sites, and growing up here is the best thing my parents could have given me. Everything is relatively close, and letting children run around in the streets is almost as safe as in the garden. Besides from that they could always run around kicking a ball, or compete internationally on skis. Whatever you choose to do, the biggest part of life is the people we surround ourselves with. In Trondheim, meeting different people from all over the world is easy. Look around, discover a new place to get a cup of coffee, and enjoy Trondheim! • 11




02 Words by Leyla Folvik Adem (16)

Is Norway really the happiest country in the world? Norway has recently been ranked the happiest country on Earth, and there are numerous reasons for it being so. Leyla, a student from Trondheim Katedralskole hit the streets to ask what the youth of the city thought about it. She encountered plenty of different opinions. She was also curious to find out if they feel under the pressure to be happy.


01 Eilert, 16


I wouldn't say that I feel pressured to be happy because I live in Norway, but I think that the fact that I do live here with so little homophobia and free healthcare makes my life a lot easier than if I were to live in some other country. I definitely have a lot of problems I complain about, but I don’t think that just because we live in such a privileged country we’re not allowed to complain or have problems. People never say “hi” to each other and we are always on our phones. The weather is awful. There's no good TV anymore. We party and drink too much in the weekend and everything is expensive. 12



02 Silvana, 17

I experience Norwegians as generally cold and not so much open to strangers. I feel like that's a huge contrast from my family back in Chile where they’re open and really social by nature. They always call me cold and think I seem uninterested, but that's really just me being influenced by Norwegian culture. I feel a bit pressured to be happy... I always feel expected to smile at strangers, even though I’m not particularly happy that day.

Norway can be challenging at times; it [being the happiest country] is still an amazing accomplishment though! And I guess there's a lot of things we should be thankful for here.


04 Maia, 16

03 Mathias, 17 Personally I find it kind of strange. I've quite often heard that a lot of Norwegians struggle with stuff like depression; usually caused by the pressure in the modern society. Living in the middle of it all gives you an entirely new perspective than looking at Norway from the outside. Most of us experience that

I'm very privileged to live in Norway, and am truly grateful for the things I've been given in life. However, while I don't necessarily feel pressure to be happy – I do feel guilt when I'm unhappy. Especially when it's for a bad reason. Sometimes I just feel sad and there's nothing I can do about it; that's when I feel the most guilt.

Camila, who is one of the students at Trondheim Katedralskole, has gathered for us what youth clubs in the city have to offer.

LOCATION Prinsens Gate 44 OPENING HOURS Monday - Thursday: 09:00 - 21:30, Friday: 09:00 - 18:30

Trondheim has a ton of places where teens can meet and spend time. Included in these are a number of youth clubs spread throughout the city. Each of these clubs provides unique opportunities and activities for the teenagers of Trondheim: from organizing games, making food, providing homework help, or just having a space where teenagers can hang out with friends. Most of the clubs are open several days during the week and some even offer times when they are open for “Tweenies” kids who are a little bit younger than the usual visitors to the clubs.


LOCATION Reier Søbstadsvei 20 OPENING HOURS Monday and Wednesday: 16:30 - 21:30 Friday: 18:00 - 22.30

Boxåpner is located in Saupstad, just south of Trondheim. Similarly to the other clubs in the area, Boxåpner offers games, guidance for different kinds of projects and homework, and of course regular activities planned by the club. They separate the louder activities from calmer ones so people can relax and do homework if they want. The club has its own gym complete with a Ping-Pong table and a separate room for climbing (bouldering). They have a disco where you can dance, sing karaoke and even learn how to use DJ equipment. Friendly adults are always there to help the kids hanging out at the club, and they also help with the dinner served every day at the club. Boxåpner is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for teens aged 13-17 and on Thursdays for kids aged 9-12.



LOCATION Tunvegen 18 OPENING HOURS: Monday and Wednesday: 17:00 - 21:30, Friday: 18:00 - 22:30

LOCATION Uglavegen 8 OPENING HOURS Tuesday and Thursday: 14:30 - 21:30, Wednesday: 11:30 - 14:30, Friday: 18:00 - 22:00

Chappa is a youth club located in the basement of the Charlottenlund School. Many of the students at the school and surrounding area spend their time here. Chappa features multiple game options like Ping-Pong and billiards, as well as a room with a big screen to play games on the PS4 connected to it. There is a great a dance room, a room for crafts, and also a music room. It’s a great place to cultivate skills, passions, and hobbies. They even offer free, healthy food choices cooked by an extremely friendly and down to earth staff. Chappa is open for anyone between ages of 13 and 17 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On Thursdays Chappa’s doors are open for kids from the fifth to seventh grade.

Caos is a youth club located up in Byåsen offering a number of different games, homework help, and even music lessons. On Wednesdays it is possible to book a room in the club to work on projects involving sewing, photography, band practice, or whatever else! Visitors can also receive help and guidance to work on in school or out of school projects. Caos is always arranging different activities – both at the club itself and elsewhere in Trondheim. These include several trips to the cinema, ski trips, and more! Dinner is served every day at Caos, and regulars to the club often take part in making the food. Caos is open for teens from the ages of 13-17 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Mondays their doors are open for children aged 9-12.


For a lot of the kids in Trondheim, ISAK is a main attraction. Being located at the centre of the city is a big reason for this. The club not only has the central location, but also frequently hosts exciting events like concerts, flea markets, and always has courses going where visitors can learn or practice a new skill. In the third floor there are recording studios, complete with experts that guide kids on how make and record their own music; there are dance and activity rooms that can be rented for two hours at a time – and dance classes to go along with them. ISAK is also home to a lovely little café called Coffee Annan where many people come to hang out, study or share a meal. The majority of ISAK’s visitors are people from the ages of 16 - 25, though anyone is welcome. They are open every day of the week except Saturdays and Sundays.


LOCATION Tunvegen 18 OPENING HOURS Monday: 17:00 - 20:00, Thursday: 16:30 - 20:00

Chappa, Caos and Boxåpner each have one day a week where they are only open for kids from the fifth to the seventh grade. This day is called “Tweenies”. They have a main activity or theme every week, however if the kids don’t want to participate they are welcome to explore the other options the clubs have to offer. “Tweenies” focuses on having simple but fun activities that anyone could join without having any previous experience or skills.

Alba is a student at Trondheim Katedralskole. Here she explains what the new circus is all about and lets you know how to get involved. Words by Alba Lorentzen-Green (17) Photos by Kristian Wanvik


rondheim is one of the best cities in Norway for the young people interested in the circus. Most people have probably heard about the classical circus, but what they do in Trondheim is not quite the same. New Circus is much more than the classical circus; it is a form of art that builds on the skills from the original circus, but it also uses other elements like theatre and dance. The artists experiment and use their creativity to make something spectacular! In addition to impressive acrobatic skills, New Circus performances often try to tell a story or a send message to get the audience to feel a certain emotion. Animals are rarely used in the performances; but when it happens very strict rules for how they are treated must be followed. There are a lot of different disciplines in New Circus. When you have exercised New Circus for a while you usually choose one discipline to focus on such as juggling, handstand, or tight wire. Focusing on what you are good at, and like, is a very good thing. Because of that, New Circus can be fun for many different people!


New Circus is also a very social hobby. There are a lot of New Circus festivals where people from all over the world can come to train together and perform for each other. At these festivals you train circus a lot, but it is also a good way to meet new people and have fun. My favourite part about New Circus is when we perform together. We put all our different fields of expertise together and make an act out of it. Sometimes non-circus artists such as dancers, actors, or musicians contribute to the performances as well. This 18


GET INVOLVED! Trondheim Kulturskole offers new circus teaching for kids and youths. Students who have trained for a while and have done great, can also join the groups Nidaros Nysirkus and Sirkus Agio. What’s more, Trondheim Kulturskole make a huge performance two times every year. Kids and teenagers cooperate and get to show what they have been working on.

adrenaline rushes you may choose risky disciplines like aerial acrobatics, juggling with knives, or flame eating. Of course, you don’t need to do these risky disciplines. Juggling and Diablo are more about focus and precision than excitement and adrenaline. Because of that, the new circus environment consists of people with different qualities.” Ayla was recently at an audition for a school in Sweden with education centred on New Circus. “I hurt my knee really bad one week before the audition so I am very unsure about whether I will be accepted into the school or not. I really hope I get in because it sounds like a good way to get an education, while also doing what I love.” If you would like to learn acrobatic skills or juggling, meet new people, be a part of making a performance, be on a stage, or just want to try something new, I recommend trying New Circus! •

gives the act more variety and possibilities. It is also very exciting and instructive for the artists to cooperate with people from other fields. The performances are all so different from each other because the artists are always experimenting with new ideas. Artists have, for a long time, entertained the audience with doing extremely impressive and often dangerous things; now they are doing a lot of the same things, but are also focused on making it beautiful. On the 23 September, one of Europe’s best New Circus groups, Circus Cirkör, will travel from Sweden to Trondheim to perform at Olavshallen. The amazing acrobats have made a performance about trust and unity in response to the refugee crisis in Europe and are going to show it to the Norwegian audience. I talked to 16 year old Ayla Wågan who has trained New Circus for eleven years now, and has big plans for her circus career. I asked her why she started training new circus. “Mom brought it up, and I thought it sounded exiting! In the beginning, it was just something I did every Tuesday, but now it has become a serious sport for me.” She responded. Why is that? “I like it more every day, and I never get tired. No matter how much I train, there are always new things to discover. This made me take new circus more seriously as a sport.” As she grew older, she went from training all the different disciplines that were available, to specializing in her favourite: Tissue. A tissue can be compared to two long, slim silk curtains hanging attached to the ceiling. She climbs up them and does amazing acrobatics in them. “The existence of so many disciplines makes it so everyone is able to find something they like. If you like excitement and 19

n 1927, Charles Lindbergh flew solo from New York to Paris. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 33,5 hours on board his plane, the Spirit of Saint Louis and landed safely at the Bourget airport. People had a passion for the jump (hop) of the fearless aviator and American newspaper headlines read: “Lucky Lindy Hops the Atlantic!” giving birth to the name of the Lindy Hop, the dance. The origin of the name is a little bit misleading, as the dance itself has little to do with “hopping”. The dance evolved from the dance The Charleston and is considered the original form of swing. It was born in the AfricanAmerican communities of Harlem, New York somewhere between 1927 and the early 1930s. Lindy Hop is a big part of the American history. When we look back to the time between 1910 and 1950, Harlem was a place for people of all colours, origins, and classes to entertain and express themselves at different clubs and ballrooms. One of these places was the Cotton Club, a jazz club in Harlem; originally opened by the African-American boxer, Jack Johnson. When he opened the club, it was called Club De Lux, but when he sold it to Owney Madden in 1923 it became the Cotton Club. The club is still at the same place today, and after a few shutdowns, the club reopened in 1978. It is awesome that the club is still there after almost one hundred years. Many lindy hoppers want to go there someday to listen to the jazz music and dance the Lindy Hop. Another place people used to go was the Savoy Ballroom. Unlike the Cotton Club, the Savoy Ballroom had a non-discrimination policy. At the Cotton Club there were only African-American workers and musicians, and only rich white glamour customers. At the Savoy Ballroom everybody was welcome. This made it easier for people of lower social ranks to influence the dance to the same extent as the people of higher social ranks;

this resulted in a versatile dance with many different style variations. The dance itself consists of both 8 and 6 count steps, and footwork borrowed from the Charleston and Tap dance. The Swing Out is one of the most common steps in Lindy Hop. Bouncing is very important in dancing the Lindy Hop. Another important element to the dance is the partner. You have a lead and a follow, in which the lead, surprisingly, “leads” and the follow “follows”, responding to the signals sent out by the lead. The resurgence of Lindy Hop in the 1990s lead to two different styles: Brooklyn style and Smooth style. In the Brooklyn, the lead, leads a follow to take a step back on the first count, but in the Smooth style, the lead leads his follow to take a step forward instead on the same first count. Jazz music is an important factor to the history of the dance. Lindy Hop and jazz music kind of evolved together and a lot of jazz bands customized their music to fit the lindy hoppers. They also made synchronized rhythms to match the music and the dance. However, it is fully possible to dance the Lindy Hop to other sorts of music, as long as the rhythm fits, making it a highly suitable dance for the youth of today. Lindy Hop is evolving constantly; new styles are born with every new lindy hopper. After a quiet phase between 1950 and 1980, the dance reappeared in the 80s. Nowadays, Lindy Hop is bigger than it was in the 30s, with more people dancing and giving it their personal touch – making it their own. Lindy Hop can be found all over the world thanks to globalization and its remarkable ability to adapt. It is very cool that Lindy Hop is still a thing today, considering it has made it through almost a century of dance. Today, there is quite a wide spectrum of people dancing the Lindy Hop. Both younger and older people seem to enjoy it, which creates a wide diversity in style of dance, music, and 21

clothing. However, few of those who dance it are younger than twenty-five. This itself is not very concerning as it might not seem very interesting for people under twenty-five, but if no one carries the tradition on to the coming generations, it will die out – a forgotten art in a fast-forward society. The future of Lindy Hop might turn out to be quite dark unless the younger generation, our generation, catches on to it. Although, seeing the interest people display towards it throughout the world there is no reason to worry just yet. Many cities have their own organizations, and there are a few Lindy Hop and Swing contests around the world each year. So if you want to start dancing Lindy Hop, there are opportunities and time to do so. Here in Trondheim there are many ways and opportunities to dance. You can join NTNUI Lindy Hop, Trondheim Swing club, or Trondheim Lindy Hop, to learn, or just dance in general. We, Leah and Elise,are currently dancing at Trondheim Lindy Hop at Lademoen Mondays and Thursdays. There is also social dance on Wednesdays. There are not a lot of Lindy Hop events in Trondheim, but there are still a few. Amongst these are the social dance evenings at Olav´s Pub on Saturdays with live jazz music. In April, there was also a festival, called Another Lindy Hop Festival or ALF. The festival contains classes and workshops for both beginners and more experienced lindy hoppers. Some of the dancers like to dress up a little. This is not a requirement, of course, but with slacks, sixpence, dress, or skirt, the whole experience gets more nostalgic. Lindy Hop is a dance that has risen from a forgotten, dark corner of swing history, and reappeared in modern culture stronger than ever before. This is a chance for everyone, especially young people to be a part of something bigger, a modernization and maintenance of a dance that, in many ways, has lead to the cultural lives we lead today. • THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE

Silvana is a student at Trondheim Katedralskole. She is an excellent make-up artist, and is here to share some tips and tricks for the new season.


his year is all about being natural. This year you’re going to rock your flaws and show off your natural beauty. We are not embracing the natural look enough, and people are going to believe that covering your face is the ideal look to society. It’s absolutely not, and we gotta’ prove that being natural is beautiful too. I love a glam look, but it feels amazing wearing a small amount of makeup. Prevent any cakey makeup, and start doing a “no makeup” look. You don’t have to ditch your makeup products to achieve this fresh look. You just gotta’ experiment with bright colours and minimal use of makeup! A flushed and moisturised face is already enough, but here I have picked out some of my favourite things to become extra cuter! Faux Freckles Freckles are such a cute facial feature, and to all my freckled beauties, ya’ll be beautiful with them so please embrace them! To us who unfortunately were not born with them there’s no need to worry anymore! Because in this tutorial we’ll show you how to get some natural looking freckles on the go! PRODUCTS YOU NEED

- Stipple sponge - Dark concealers The stipple sponge is the key to these freckles, and you can get it from a Halloween store, or online for a cheap price. You can use THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE

any concealer, as long it is dark and in cream form. Liquid won’t work because it would takes a longer time to dry, and powder will not stick on the sponge. Use a sponge with bigger holes in it so it won’t look too dense because you’ll need a bit of space in-between the individual freckles. I’m using a cream concealer from the Anastasia Contour Cream kit in the colour “Cinnamon” and “Chocolate”. I recommend using at least two dark shades to get a variety of different colours; freckles don’t normally consist of only one colour. This will also help it to look a lot more natural. 1. Cut the corners of your sponge and trim it down to soft edges because you want them to be sharp. 2. Dip your sponge in your concealer and dab, dab, dab onto your skin! Spread them around your nose and cheeks; that’s the area the sun hits so it will make it look natural. TIP

Use a bronzer before applying your freckles, and drag your brush across your face. They will look more natural on a tan surface. Combine the different shades and keep patting them wherever you want; like down your neck and shoulders too. Your choice, and do as you wish; don’t go to crazy though! If you keep patting your sponge on the same place it will end up looking like a dirty spot. 22



Press straight down and lift straight up to get dots. If you swipe your sponge across your face, you will end up with streaks instead of dots. A cheaper alternative of the contour palette is the foundation palette from H&M. (129,-) Now you have adorable freckles you can rock! This is a great technique if you’re in a hurry; it’s easy as well! Natural Brows Have you ever dreamed of having fluffy and hairy brows but aren’t able to grow some hair? Or are you tired of having sharp “Instagram eyebrows” and want to leave them natural? Then keep reading and follow these steps. 1. Shape your eyebrows with a spoolie, then use a tinted eyebrow gel to make the artificial hairs. I’m using Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpt Brow Mascara in dark brown. The gel will also keep the hair in place the whole day. 2. Use a pencil or a brush to make a tail on the outer edge of your eyebrows. I’m using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the colour dark brown. TIP

I recommend using a thin angle brush to make thin strokes and the trick to natural brows is to only fill the edges with colours, and follow your own eyebrow shape. You can also draw some individual hairs to make it even more natural at the end of your tail. You don’t want to fill in the whole brow, just the outer edge and let the colour blend in with a spoolie. Create a gradient effect on your tail and keep brushing and filling in until you’re happy with the result. You can use any eyebrow product; there’s no need to use high-end brands. A dupe for the Anastasia Dipbrow is NYX Pomade from H&M/CUBUS (79,-), Depend Eyebrow Pomade from CUBUS (149,-). Both are cream forms but you can also use a pencil! You want to keep your lines thin, so sharpen it or use a thinner pencil. Your eyebrows are now done, be ready to give em’ a go! This look is honestly so fast to make; it only requires a few products and three minutes of your time. It also looks very pretty and proves that bushy and hairy eyebrows are cute! These two tutorials combined together will complete a whole new look! Don’t be afraid to try out new things. If there are things you’ve dreamed of trying, don’t let anyone stop ya! This is just a fun, everyday look if you’re short on time. I love it because it so cute, and it will definitely look cute on you as well! • 23





Jéleena, a student at Rosenborg skole, is curious how social media impacts the youth’s reality and tries to find it out in her article.


Words by Jéleena Del Prado (15) Photos by Théo Duperret (18)



e all face problems in our everyday. Some are more relevant than others, but we all have them. At times they can be meaningless like not having enough milk for your cereal, or no wi-fi. Other times, it is about your persona and what image you represent in the world. You come to learn about the world around you when you are in your youth, freely listing off opinions yet not in a situation where you have to be completely reasonable. This makes teenagers sound trivial. “The truth is we’re not just talking about homework and TV cliff hangers here, being a teenager might not be as easy as you remember — and some of that relates to our use of Social Media” Social media has allowed us to build a global society; we can get in touch with


or pleasures? people a lot easier than before. It’s broken down barriers to how we speak to one another, and the ways we portray ourselves. Personally, I don’t think that it is all good or all bad …but a little bit of both. I interviewed two people about their thoughts on social media: the first, a teenager close to the case; and the second, an adult. I felt like it was important that this article reflected different generational points of views. “You don’t have to quit using social media, as long as you remember to live your life” states Marie Solberg, a Norwegian teenager attending Rosenborg school in Trondheim. “One of the good things about social media is that you can choose to show other people what you want. This “power” that you have over your followers, however, is often used the wrong way. Like when people ‘construct’ this image of always being happy. It makes other people wonder: ‘why am I not like this person? Why can’t I have this life?’ Do they not realise that this is just an illusion? People portray themselves as happy on social media, but it’s just not natural to have no downsides. We all have bad hours, bad days, months or even years. This is something we should just accept”. Marie’s problems are mostly school-based — nothing unusual for the average youth. I felt like spicing things up a little, so I questioned her on friend-related problems. When I asked her about this, she whipped her head back in laughter and spoke between chuckles: “If I were to tell you about my friend-drama, your article would be ten pages long”. After a few laughs, I asked the question I had really been intending: has she ever experienced problems caused by social media? “I think that most of my problems with social media is the superficial stuff that has unfortunately managed to consume many lives. Basically, everything that seems important in the moment, but really isn’t in the longterm. For instance, imagine two people on a date. They both like each other but still

find their screens more interesting than interacting with each other. I just feel like a lot of the stuff that may seem important at the time - like checking your feed on Instagram, is way less important than people think, in the longterm”. “If you restrict yourself from showing the world who you really are, how can you grow?” questions my second interviewee, Jaya Thomlison. Who is Jaya Thomlison? My answer would include the fact that she is an active member of Trondheim’s community, a female role-model and last, but not least, a loving mother of two children. Jaya is the second person I interviewed, in her role as Editor for The List, and she covers the adult perspective. I asked Jaya about her own opinions on social media: “Social Media has become a crucial platform for communication, and most importantly, for groups that seem impossible to reach. Social Media is about putting the power of revealing your daily lives back into the individual’s hands, sharing lifestyles and opinions across borders. I think that despite our concerns, it is a reality that we live with and have to accept”. I continued to probe her thoughts, she responds saying it is both good and bad, a little of both. “You have to accept that social media has been a good tool in some cases. It gives us the opportunity to connect with people all around the world, with barely any effort. But on the other side, it’s changed how we experience our physical lives”. She brings up an example of people sitting on a bus, today everyone is using a phone, but what would they have seen or done had they noticed one another? “Another example is when people are at concerts, you look up notice that half of the audience is looking at the stage through their phone, instead of living in the moment. Concerts used to be about sharing a common experience with the people around you. If you are holding your phone and ignoring everything else, you are 25

sending off a closed vibe”. This sparked my interest, leading me ask Jaya about her own youth. I took her back in time to when she was a teenager, most importantly, back to a time before social media 10 to 20 years ago. “I think that generally, there are always the same types of problems in every generation that have to do with identity and how we categorise each other. All of this has most likely always existed, and will probably continue in different forms. Even though the system today is much like when I grew up - I definitely experienced youth differently than nowadays”. “When I was young, people made plans by calling one another or straight up stopping by their house. If nobody was home, you would have to estimate where they would be. You basically had to know one another’s schedules a bit more intimately. You had to guess what you think they were doing”. I agreed that it could seem as though we live more instantaneously and less spontaneously today. If you want to cancel plans last minute, just send a message. With Instagram, you can almost imagine what places are going to be like even before you go there. Maybe the existence of social media is the source of problems in our lives, or conflict, or maybe it is something else. The way I see it, there will always be something. My concern is how can we handle this, but still live a normal, healthy life that is true to our ups and downs? I personally feel that we should reduce things that distract us temporarily and instead enjoy whatever time we have left with the people we care about. Looking back, will you even remember the time spent on your phone, or will you cherish the times you had a good ol’ conversation with your friends in person? The truth is, I don’t think that social media is the direct problem — I think that we are. So maybe instead of tweeting your thoughts and feelings, tell a friend, tell a stranger. I swear that one day it will be worth it.• THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE



Trap Music: The Soundtrack of My Life




Nikolai from Katedralskole shares what it is means to embrace trap music as the soundtrack of the life.

WW Words by Nikolai Thinn (17)

Photo courtesy Diwang Valdez

hen hip-hop was in its golden era in the late 80’s and 90’s; aggressive and violent lyrics were the mainstream. Fastforward to today and what we call underground hip-hop has changed drastically; most of today’s underground music consists of a heavy use of bass and simple lyrics. Something tells me the forefathers of rap would look down on it; nevertheless, the youth love it. I’ve been following the hip-hop sub-genre Trap for a long time. For me, the most enjoyable part of this type of music is the energy most artists puts into their songs. Most “trappers” shout or scream into the microphone to supplement the heavy bass and synth instrumentals. One of the main ingredients to Trap is the drum machine, which brings a hard kick to the music. The music really pumps you up and makes you want to jump around and fight anyone that looks at you in a bad way. The name Trap originated from Atlanta, Georgia where “the trap” are areas where drugs are being sold, and the lifestyle of the trappers are “a trap” as once they join gangs and become criminals there is no turning back. One important thing in Trap music is authenticity – it needs to feel like what the artists are rapping about is real. This is also the dangerous part about trap music. Many lyrics consist of descriptions of drug use, crime, and girls. It could be easy for

the youth to get inspired in a negative way –especially those that are in a phase of life where they are unsure of who they are yet. Mix that in with a party atmosphere where drinks are involved and it becomes easier for people to start fighting, or pushing the limits of what they put in their bodies. Looking past that, being at a party where trap music is maxed out on the speakers is an amazing experience. Everyone goes wild: jumping, raving, and singing the lyrics. The heavy bass flows through your body like an earthquake. Trap music is probably one of the best genres to put on at a party and it can make a bad mood turn good, instantly. I’ve had friends who told me how stupid they think trap music is and that I just listen to trash rap, but then have them tell me “I get why you listen to this now, I love this!” at parties…it’s priceless. Trap is so different from pop music and a lot of people are quick to turn away from it because of the “simple” lyrics, but in my opinion, you just need to give it a chance and listen with an open mind. Trap is not your typical billboard music and finding it is not as easy as turning on the radio. The music is very explicit; making it so it doesn’t get listeners by playing on the radio. You need to actively search for it; the main platform for trap is Soundcloud: a popular music sharing website for anyone to post and get recognition for their music. To discover new and unknown artists this is where to go. Youtube also works fine, but it has a much smaller library and doesn’t support the artists as well as sites like Soundcloud. If you are a Twitter user, you can follow some of the mainstream rappers and they will often give shout outs to their underground associates, making it easy to find new artists and explore their music. The biggest trappers right now are Migos and 21 Savage – though I don’t listen to these as they can, in my opinion, become clouded by the mainstream. My friends and I listen more to rappers like XXXTentacion, Smokepurpp, and $uicideboy$. These are rappers that I highly recommend and cover different sides of the Trap scene. XXXTentacion does anything from scream rap, to rap flows with a deeper lyrical meaning, and the soulful real music. Smokepurpp is a hype rapper and 27

raps over looped synths and hard 808’s (a popular drum machine with a diverse sound). $uicideboy$ are two monotone rappers, rapping about taboo subjects such as depression, suicidal thoughts, and the devil, over a glitch trap melody. These are all American based rappers and you may be wondering, what does Norway have to offer? Unfortunately underground hip-hop is not a huge phenomenon in Norway. When it comes to the scene in Trondheim we don’t have too much to offer either. In 2014 we had an artist representing Trondheim called Shitrich, I like this artist a lot, unfortunately his last album was created in 2014, and with a limited library of songs it gets old. He raps about representing Trøndelag and living the street life­– doing drugs and standing up for himself. I would compare him to the popular American rapper 21 Savage, and would love if he made more music. The other Norwegian Trap group calls themselves Gourm£t; they make songs with lots of funny puns about food. These groups are not really popular among the youth as most of us find it to be too goofy and not something that pumps you up. If you want to listen to Norwegian underground hip-hop artists from Bergen are the best bet. The top two from Bergen are Kamelen and Dårlig Vane. Kamelen had a lot of hype behind him last year when he was doing concerts on the run from the police. The hype died down when he went to jail and was unable to release new music. A free man now, he has released one song that has decent support and it is going to be interesting to see what he releases next. Dårlig Vane is another hip-hop group, featuring slow raps over a beat with ad-libs after their lines. These guys are clearly inspired by the Atlanta rappers Migos and they could go far with their careers if they keep grinding. The underground scene in Norway is struggling, mainly because most of us don’t have many reasons to rebel against society. Norway is the happiest country in the world; living the “trap” life is not what people are prioritizing. Unfortunately, this means that there are very few events or concerts in the future for Trondheim. Perhaps it’s just not meant to become a mainstream genre in Norway, but one can hope… • THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE


Students from Trondheim Katedralskole, Majka and Snorre met up with Stian to perform their second professional interview. Check it out!

HELLO, STIAN SANDØ Words by Majka Thoresen Støbakk (17) and Snorre Henning (16)


Photos by Théo Duperret (18)








tian Sandø is a student at NTNU, but he is also the host of a popular science show for kids called Newton. He invited us to join him at his gym to sit down on a bright green couch and talk. We started the interview by asking him what he would like to talk about – we wanted him to decide where the conversation would go. “Well I’m really fascinated by toilets lately. The absence of a toilet kills more kids every year than malaria and aids combined, “started Stian. This made us laugh and caused a relaxed mood. “But like, for real though, it’s so silly that such a simple and basic thing causes so many kids to die,” he continued. We understood Stian is into kid’s problems so we brought the conversation over to his job as the host of Newton. We wanted to know what he is currently doing and where he is at with his projects, and simply, what’s new. His reaction was full of excitement; “We’ve just made it into a YouTube-show! That’s been taking a lot of time and energy lately, what I don’t mind because it’s really cool as well. The show used to be a traditional TV-show, and now more people will have access to it.” We followed up by discussing what he liked most about Newton and science in general. “Well, the universe. Space! I mean it’s so big, and the more you think about it the bigger it gets. There are 200 billion stars with planets around them, and that’s just our galaxy. It’s estimated to be around 100 billion galaxies with their own 200 billion other stars. When you start to think about it you realize how small we are and expectations become just pointless. Stressing about how to look, what to say, what to do... It all doesn’t really matter. “ “We’re also doing a new project in Newton, we’re going to carry every piece of plastic we use for an entire week and then show it to people. A new episode will come out each day of Easter. The reason we are doing is simple – people use too much plastic, recycle it, and then think they’re done with it. What we don’t realize is that we pollute nanoparticles every time we recycle. These particles end up in nature, and eventually in the stomach of animals. They kill fish, birds and plants. Normal plastic is cheaper to use THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE

“If I could marry anyone, I would marry Elon Musk or Bill Gates. They are successful and brilliant people” and produce, but in the long run it will backfire on both our nature and us. Biological plastic brakes down and will turn back to Earth when thrown in nature – without harm to the wildlife. Humans have developed a habit of doing it the easy way, but a lot of times it isn’t the best.” Aren’t Stian’s words inspiring? We decided to get to ask about some other exciting facts from his background. Stian and some of his friends created an app in late 2013 called FLARE. It’s an app they made to prevent rape and other violent episodes. The more people use it, the more efficient it gets. The main idea behind it was to connect people with their phone to let them inform people in the area that they need help. Let’s learn about Flare and how Stian is planning to popularize it in the future: “Well, we don’t really need any commercials or anything, because young people will share it with their friends. The app has already saved people from getting raped, and that’s all the promotion we need. Now that we’re in the Russetid we will let everybody know that the Flare app is here for them.” This led the conversation to phenomena of Russetid, so we asked him what his best memory from when he was a Russ. He started laughing and needed a few seconds to come up with an answer. “It must have been this one incident when a friend of mine had been spending an entire day with a girl. Me and my other friends passed him on the street and I said that the other girl was prettier, wasn’t she? The girl then said that she couldn’t do this, because 30

she thought it was true. My friend then came back to beat up one of the others in our friend group because I lied and said that he was the one who said it.” After another laugh caused by his dark humor, we asked him if he had any fears: “To become a Paradise Hotel contestant. However ironic it is, it is one of my secret fears. Maybe I’ll be in a celebrity Paradise Hotel. I don’t know any other... I’ve had one “paradise moment” when I was a Russ myself. I was inside a Russebuss with only girls. One of them was standing right in front of me, screaming at me, and I didn’t even know why. Then she slapped me across the face. It turned out it was because I allegedly called one of her friend’s boyfriend fat.” When thinking about a closure to this article, we considered two quotes from Stian. Eventually, we decided to share all of them with you, as we find them extremely interesting and we wish everyone thought about them a little bit. “We are just as close to extinction today as the dinosaurs were when they lived. Actually we’re closer now because of all our nuclear weapons. That really makes you reconsider everything. If an asteroid sets course against us, we’re powerless. This might help you to realize how pointless war is. And did you know that 99% of all life on Earth lives in water? And we haven’t even explored 95% of the ocean!” To finish the interview with an optimistic element, he added, “If I could marry anyone, I would marry Elon Musk or Bill Gates. They are successful and brilliant people.”

















n a desire to share their love of both music and the celestial, former Queen lead guitarist Brian May and world-renowned astrophysicist Garik Israelian dreamed up a festival to share the wonders of the universe through a diverse group of incredible minds and engaging musicians, bringing together two of humanity’s most enduring pursuits. The fourth incarnation of Starmus is happening right here, in Trondheim. This year’s festival promises to be an historic event on a number of counts, because it is the first time it’s being held outside of its birthplace of Tenerife, three of the six remaining moonwalkers will be attending and 10 nobel laureates top the bill. Not to mention the highly anticipated lecture by Stephen Hawking. However, to view this high-profile guest list as that of a purely academic conference, would be to miss the point of Starmus. It is more of a ‘science party’. Starmus’ understated significance is that it is a festival designed to engage everyone, from top academics to interested kids, families and amateur stargazers, in both a serious and playful manner. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their science background. The core mission is to raise the

understanding of and participation in science. Dr Israelien was initially inspired by the atmosphere he found when he gave his TED talk in 2009. He had previously published more than 150 articles on topics such as extra-solar planets and black hole binary systems, and he led the team which found the first observational evidence that supernova explosions are responsible for the formation of black holes. But in creating Starmus, Dr Israelien wanted to recreate TED talk’s mix of an intimate experience in which the audience is fully immersed in providing rich content with the best experts. The first Starmus events were very successful. Previous attendees speak on how unique it was to have access to such familiar and well known faces in the world of science, in such close proximity. Quite a few had only a layman’s knowledge in astronomy, but found they could follow the subject matter through the welcoming and personal atmosphere. Dr Israelian has spoken of how he wants the festival to reach beyond its days of activity to foster future collaborative work throughout the assembled ‘science celebrities’, musicians and the guests attending. After all, science and human exploration have always been 33

collaborative endeavours. In preparing for this event, an open invitation has been issued by NTNU, the host of Starmus, to locations across the city to host independent events that will embody the Starmus spirit of collaboration. Lectures, film showings, mini-concerts and the Starmus Science Camp with 1500 places for youth, will be some of the offerings that the inhabitants of Trondheim can take advantage of without a festival pass. The aim of accessibility has been an ever-present theme in the previous Starmus festivals and this year it seems to surpass the scope of what it has previously achieved. Trondheim and NTNU have an opportunity to help shape the feeling of the festival’s six days and influence its future incarnations through a community rich in science, technology, innovation and, of course, music. Opening the various hubs of activity to new and engaging activities to support the festival will showcase the best of what Trondheim has to offer, both for city residents and those coming from across the world to participate. Many things may be written in the stars, however Starmus IV is very much being written here on Earth.. •

he New Horizons spacecraft was launched in January 2006. Since then, it has been hurtling through space towards the outer reaches of our solar system, bringing with it the most advanced instruments to gather detailed images and information about the little planet of Pluto. Yet, to the surprise of the New Horizons team, on its arrival to Pluto, the spacecraft also brought 2 billion human beings along for the ride… in the form of an unprecedented number of viewers watching live online. While the project was twenty-six years in the making, suddenly the New Horizons was team thrust into the global spotlight, and with it their principal investigator Dr Alan Stern. The List had a chance to talk with Dr Alan Stern, and it is easy to see that planets aren’t just his job; they are his passion. That passion for science started very young and the decision he made to be a scientist has carried him, vicariously, into space on many missions. It is clear that as New Horizons heads deeper into the Kuiper Belt towards its next target of 2014 MU69, his excitement has not waned. Why did you decide to participate in Starmus this year? Garik [Israelian] asked me, and I saw the speaker lineup which looked spectacular. Based on those two things I wanted to participate. Starmus is a magnet for space exploration and tech. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of and to experience the excitement of those interested in space. I am excited to talk about the work and the pride that our team did it. It’s easy to understand why professionals or students in the science field will come to Starmus. Why do you think the average person, perhaps not involved in science or space exploration, is so engaged in following astronomy? I believe what separates humans from all the other species on Earth is our hunger to explore and to understand the universe around us.This is a broad characteristic of societies, not just modern but ancient too, which is very deep within the human spirit. I feel space exploration is more visceral this THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE

way than anything else, and combined with the high technology and its superlatives the fastest, the farthest, and terms like that - make space exploration irresistible to so many people. You are coming to speak about your role as the principal investigator on the New Horizons mission and the exploration of Pluto. What stood out to you the most in the data that you have received? Picking a singular thing makes this a difficult one to answer. So I would say there are three things that stand out the most. One is that small planets can be just as complex as big planets like the Earth or Mars. In Pluto we found an enormous range in the sheer geological complexity, and that it really does rival much larger planets like Earth and Mars. Pluto has a surface area only about the size of the continental United States and yet, if you made a list of all the geological phenomena that we’ve seen it’s longer than anywhere else in the solar system except perhaps our own planet. The second big surprise is that we did not think that small planets could be geologically active over four billion years. We thought their geological engines would die early as they cooled, but somehow Pluto defied expectations and today it is still exhibiting vast geologic activity. The third thing is the degree of public interest. Somehow Pluto has captured people’s 34

INTERVIEW BY Jennifer Wold


imagination, hearts and minds in a way that was unprecedented for NASA. Even now, I am giving a speech a week about it and so are my many team members. What we did at Pluto is the farthest expedition of exploration in the history of humankind to explore a new world. I’ve said this a number of times, that if one little robot the size of a baby grand piano named New Horizons can generate this much public interest, imagine the global phenomenon that will occur when humans land on Mars for the first time. It will be unparalleled. What is significant about the next target of 2014 MU69? What are you hoping to find there? It’s much smaller than Pluto - only 50 kilometres across, but it’s representative of the building blocks for planets like Pluto. We want to understand how and what they were made of. This object is orbiting very far from the sun, and has been in a deep freeze for four billion years. That means it’s very well preserved and we can use it as a window to look back in time at the formation of small planets. There is such a focus on getting youth involved in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects. How would you convince the participation in those fields? I don’t think you should convince people to go into specific fields. People should follow their heart. People excel at what they are most interested in and if someone is most interested in tax accounting and that rocks their world, or ballet, or stock trading, they should go do that. Do whatever excites you most. A certain fraction will study STEM because we do exciting things like explore Pluto and it sparks kids to want to go and study STEM topics! I’d like to tell you a little story. About a year ago after a talk I gave and then a question and answer session, and half way through an hour-long line of questioners, a middle aged mother shook my hand and was crying. I’ve never seen anyone crying in a receiving line, and she said “I want to give you a hug, may I? Because my son was failing high school until he watched the flyby of Pluto, when he said to me - “‘I want to be an engineer and do that.” He’s now a straight-A student. Thank you.’” As a scientist you don’t hear it directly very often like that, that we can turn somebody around just by doing what we do in our jobs. It was amazing. We’d like to thank Dr. Stern for his time most sincerely and we look forward to hearing him speak. His sincerity and love for what he does should be inspiring to all in attendance. Perhaps a few more future space explorers will as a result of being inspired by him from here in Trondheim.


CHARLES DUKE “The Moon was the most spectacularly beautiful desert you could ever imagine. Unspoilt. Untouched. It had a vibrancy about it and the contrast between it and the black sky was so vivid, it just made this impression of excitement and wonder.”




umankind has always looked to the stars for guidance; beauty and pure curiosity have caused us to gaze ever upwards wondering as to what or who is out there. We have been scanning visually and listening to what the universe might offer up of its secrets. What has been called a hoax or a landmark achievement depending on who you ask, has been spoken of by those who dared to believe that they could touch the landscape of the moon. They have spoken on various stages during their lives, but the Starmus stage will host three of the remaining six in a panel discussion, which is truly an unprecedented moment. In the modern age we are privy to much of what happens on spacewalks, at the International Space Station and various other expeditions.

“Whenever I gaze up at the moon, I feel like I’m on a time machine. I am back to that precious pinpoint of time, standing on the foreboding - yet beautiful - Sea of Tranquility. I could see our shining blue planet Earth poised in the darkness of space.”

Global instant-access to this information allows for a slightly blasé appreciation of the importance of what is being seen, whereas as July 20, 1969 only had a brief live broadcast with millions clamouring around tv sets and radios in rapt attention. The men who left humanity’s mark on the moon are in their twilight and thus, their stories are even more poignant and important to hear. For Buzz Aldrin (age 86), Charles Duke (age 80), and Harrison Schmitt (age 80) this could well be the last time these men meet to impart their reflections of their respective footprints on the aspiring generation of space explorers. Their words will soon become imprints left, much like those on the moon, for us to study in hindsight instead of in the moment of awed utterances such as “One small step…”

HARRISON SCHMITT “It’s like trying to describe what you feel when you’re standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon or remembering your first love or the birth of your child. You have to be there to really know what it’s like.”



The Starmus programme was still in the making when The List when to print. For a full programme, newly added events and further details see Starmus web pages.



desire of Starmus is to be as collaborative as possible both with the festival presenters and guests, but also with the host community. NTNU has partnered with many local venues across Trondheim to have a variety of activities to share the mission and spirit of Starmus. You’ll find concerts, science exhibitions, author presentations,and audience participation activities all organized by those who know our community best: locals! The details can be found in the listings section about all the activities you can participate in.

POLLUTION PODS INSTALLATION BY THE CLIMART TEAM CHRISTIAN A. KLÖCKNER “There is this narrative to this whole project that what we do here in Norway is connected to things that happen in other places in the world; the consumption that we have here is connected to the pollution… The artist [behind the project] is working to get funding to tour it to China and other countries, and has teamed up with a company that is building equipment for cleaning air to provide this “Norwegian fresh” air. Starmus fits into this idea of speaking to more than just Norway and we thought they had to have us.”

STARMUS SUMMER SCIENCE AND MUSIC CAMP TARJEI JOAR MOEN “Since Starmus is both science and music, we have decided to do both in a camp under the Starmus logo. These talents of Science and Music are self-driven and have their own strong interest in these fields, and they will come to participate of their own desire… It is so rewarding to be working with so many diverse and dedicated professionals to provide this experience for them.”

LITTERATURHUSET TROND ÅM “By offering us lecturers and special guests, to build events around, Starmus is making itself more accessible for the local people. It is sometimes hard to get these notable people here; they have brought them to us and we feel lucky to have them.”



“Trondheim Science Centre will celebrate all things science at the Starmus festival. At the centre you can participate in activities about space, and at the town square you can visit our activity stand and enjoy Forsker-Frederics cool science show twice a day at the big stage. Starmus is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate science and the achievement of the human mind. A place to get inspired and meet some of the finest nerds on the planet.”

“We think [Starmus] is very exciting to be a part of and are focusing on literature, but the library is and has so much more to offer. We will be having two authors; one presenting his seminal work for adults and the other is a children’s author.”

The Starmus programme was still in the making when The List when to print. For a full programme, newly added events and further details see Starmus web pages.

rondheim offers a lot to its art scene. With platforms and deliberations upon how to expand and inflict art in our society, we inspire ourselves to look at the component network we have and what we can magnify. We hear critique on Trondheim lacking visitors to its institutions and an adequate communication to its environment and people. Focusing on numbers and not the depth, the process and history of what is arriving and departing to and from our city. The art scene and many individual people have made great efforts and shown strengths in different areas that should not be faded by the critique. Galleri Blunk, to mention one of the galleries in this city that I love, has shown

persistent attention to local and international art students and newly established artists. It is creating space where an independent artist can collect ties with the community around them. Galleries such as Babel, KiT and Rake are functioning directly to the audience and an establishing artist. There is intent in every corner to broaden and influence diversity and space. With a tight schedule of exciting exhibitions this summer, we can guide ourselves towards a deeper appreciation of what Trondheim art scene has to offer. Trondheim Art Museum has now opened one of its most profound exhibitions, If on a Trondheim’s Night a Traveler, in collaboration with Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

(see page 46). One subtle exhibition to look at, but nevertheless my favourite one this spring is a bachelor exhibition at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. Introducing the graduates and their work, Knock Knock Smog Wand opens on from 28 April to 7 May. This occasion allows us to meet the growth and character of emerging artists based here in Trondheim. Eigil Forberg, one of the graduates presented in the next pages, opens it up and gives us an insight of his process, his admirable work and character. Follow our listings for more scheduled exhibitions in the city and engage with the broad platform Trondheim has to offer. All the best.

WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE OF WOOD IN CONTEMPORARY NORWEGIAN ART AND DESIGN? Solveig Lønmo reporting from Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design





s concept, myth and material, wood has never lost its appeal. After all, Norwegian wood is a worldwide phenomenon. With two exhibitions this spring and summer, the design museum in Trondheim focuses on artists of today who wander the forests without getting lost. “I follow the wood’s unique properties, and actually do what the piece in hand tells me to,” explains Stian Korntved Ruud. He is the craftsman-designer behind the piece 19 counties. From 19 different types of wood, picked by himself from all Norway’s counties last summer, the artist has carved spoons – or, rather, spoon-like shapes. The act is both creative and contemplative. The planning, the travel and the time spent is somewhat imbedded in the final result, which is both an installation and documentation. On display, 19 counties consists of both the spoons and

their certificates with photos from the places he gathered the wood, as well as GPS coordinates… for the nerd, the lover of material and the philosopher. The artwork is like a portrait of the country. Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, a national museum of decorative arts and design, recently purchased the piece to their collection, and presents it in the exhibition The logic of the local. Contemporary Norwegian and Polish design (6 April – 4 June). 19 counties will also be on view in their summer exhibition What Wood Would (22 June – 10 September), along with interesting relatives from the contemporary Norwegian art scene, including names such as Hanne Tyrmi, Lars Sture and Ann Kristin Aas. The curator of What Wood Would, Steffen Wesselvold Holden, explains human’s twofold relationship with the forest: “On one side, it is easy to get lost in a forest, thus it has become a psychological metaphor for the all-consuming and unknown darkness in our subconscious. On the other side, it has provided us with lovely memories of warm summer forests bursting with sound and sweet scents.” The scents and surfaces of wood is one of Scandinavian Design’s love affairs; the mid-century design epoch maybe mostly dominated by Danish and Swedish designers. This historical period is beautifully and extraordinarily presented in the Trondheim museum’s permanent room, signed by the great architect Finn Juhl. He was commissioned in 1950 by the museum to create an


office interior authentic of the period. Finn Juul chose the best of Scandinavian design at the time, and the overall impression is of wooden purity. If wood could choose, what would wood want? To dwell in here. Many more Norwegian wood projects can be seen in The logic of the local, such as Papermaster by Anderssen & Voll, Budalstolen (a new version of the Budal chair) by Ole Petter Wullum, the bird feeder Pipp by Petter Wiig Aune and After Oil Furniture by Erlend Leirdal. Four out of these five designers actually come from Trondheim, the capital of wood art – at least for this museum season. Go count the growth rings, dig into the stories! • 43

How are you feeling? – I think I am feeling better than I should. This year has been one deadline after the other and still more to come. However today, I woke up feeling dangerously complacent. What can we find in your studio? Nowadays I am mostly working on Masonite 44

boards (MDF) in different formats. I might set out to do a painting consisting of multiple boards, but as I go along I might remove some or add on more. From time to time it stocks up with pieces that didn’t fit. I like to keep them in stacks from the floor leaning towards the wall. That way I can flip through them like records in a crate when I am looking for something to work on. A pleasant association. I try to keep a reserve of primed boards so that I can start a new fresh painting whenever I am stuck or on the verge of doing something stupid out of spite when I am stuck in figuring out more ambitious paintings. Also; paint-ings, tubes, stains, buckets, cans, brushes, drips, smells. Oatmeal, Birkenstocks, painting-pants, documents, tools and some speakers for my pretty little ipod. Two hologram postcards, one with kittens and the other one is a Robert Muybridge ‘Jumping man’. The latest edition to my studio tools are socks – brought out from the back of my shelves to be used as gloves for “fingerpainting”. Tell me about your favourite colour: When I was a child I would say green, but I remember that I suspected that this was a too easy answer to a very difficult question. Now it is even harder as I seem unable to detach from my experiences with relating to colour as paint. When I paint, the consistency, transparency/opacity or any other specific property of a certain kind of colour might make me eligible to favour it over another one that might appeal more to my eyes only. Like “Brilliant Pink” or “Nickel Titanium Yellow” for example, these are really heavy body paints with a firm consistency, really really satisfying to stick these tubes into a messy wet painting and draw out lines clear cut and brilliant! There are also weirdos like “Indian Yellow” I keep returning to. Even if every manufacturer of paint delivers slightly (or very) different editions of the same product name, this one is usually strange and guarantees some unexpected results when mixed with others. Originally the pigment was derived from the urine of cows that were fed mango leaves exclusively, but fortunately for the cows this was banned a long time ago



EIGIL FORBERG Untitled, 2016 photography Courtesy of artist

and I guess some chemist made a synthetic substitute. Also I have a close relationship to Lukas´ “Zinc White” – a mixing white from the cheapest descent brand of oil paints available in Trondheim and without a doubt the one I have used the most. What brought you to Trondheim? And how has Trondheim been an impact on your process as an artist? I first moved here eight years ago, for no particular reason except a determination to leave Tromsø. Then I spent a couple of years in Oslo before I returned to start the Bachelor programme at Trondheim Academy of Fine Arts. The academy offers great studios and they are accessible 24 hours a day so it has been a really great place to get things done. Between painting I have been walking a specific route around the city which I guess has functioned as a kind of bonding process to Trondheim. I set out from Solsiden, through the city and follow the tram-tracks to the church at Ila, cross the bridge to Öya and follow the river back to Solsiden. I must have walked that route about 1000 times during these three years. Which Norwegian artist would recognize as an inspiration? – Michael Krohn. With Kjøtt, Raga Rockers or any one of his other bands. I know he is painting also, but I haven’t seen them. aWhere is your next destination? I really don’t know. I am applying for different master courses in Norway and abroad. I have my preferences but I will keep them to myself. I am looking forward to moving, but I will always return to Trondheim as I have a Sister, brother in-law, nephew and niece here. Notes to self? – The five latest entries in my notebook: Plextol b, d, k?? Deadline bachelortext 12.april! Skype 31. 1610 244x122 Gallery floor - ceiling 434cm Upcoming exhibitions? – The bachelor show “Knock Knock Smog Wand” in Gallery KIT, opening April 28th.

From the impressive collection, the director and curators at TKM made a selection of about 30 works, which are displayed on the first floor of Trondheim Art Museum. The exhibition titled If on a Trondheim’s Night a Traveler… refers to the book If on a Winter’s

Night a Traveler, by the Italian writer Italo Calvino. In the book the reader is the protagonist and is thrown in and out of ten different narratives. The exhibition is reflective of the genre, in that it consists of moving into many different topics, such as identity, sexuality and staging of the self. Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, who was in town for the opening, has been of great importance for contemporary art and on the opening day, the museum had conversations between director Johan Börjesson and Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. • Tauba Auerbach / Marvin Gaye Chetwynd / Roberto Cuoghi / Berllinde De Bruyckere / Trisha Donnelly / Francesco Gennari / Zoe Leonard / Sharon Lockhart / Sarah Lucas / David Medalla / Raymond Pettibon / Charles Ray / Wael Shawky / Cindy Sherman / Paul Thek / Rosemarie Trockel / Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

n 13 June, for the 25th year in a row, there will be waves, upon waves of girls and women (boys and men as well!) running through Trondheim. Jentebølgen is a 5 kilometre “fun run” open to all ages and abilities: from those looking to take a beautiful walk through a historic setting; to those looking to speed things up and try to achieve a personal best. Jentebølgen is put on by the Strindheim IL in support of the Norske Kvinners Sanitetsforening (NKS), a non-profit that looks to improve the health and lives of people in Norway, with a focus on women’s living conditions. NKS sees women’s living conditions as a multifaceted concept, therefore their commitment extends over a wide range of issues. The organisation strives in equal measure in its commitment to working on behalf of women who have been exposed to violence, minority women and more generally, to improving women’s rights in society. The programme for this THE SIXTEENTH ISSUE


year’s Jentebølgen is yet to be released, but you can be sure there will be a whole lot more planned than just the 5km route through Trondheim.

This makes for a great spectacle, so your sprained ankle is no excuse for not coming down and supporting others. Registration for Jentebølgen can be found online, and the last day to register is 5 June. So mark your calendars, start a good stretching routine, and be ready to have some fun for a fantastic cause this June. —bpk

Organized for the third time in Trondheim, it will take place on 10 and 11 June: focusing on good cultural experience for families with children from the ages of 0 to 12. Organizers believe that children deserve carefully chosen cultural experiences similarly to what adults have. The festival is a good arena to experience Trøndersk children’s culture:

there will be music, dancing, theatre, literature and a wide array of other activities. Director of the festival, Astrid Cecilie Olaussen, says that at Juba Juba there is something for everyone: “I would personally recommend the theatre performance Anatomi for Nybegynnere; the concert with 9 Grader Nord; the Postapocalyptisk figurverksted; as well as the making of Ballongtutafon in cooperation

with Ringve Museum. All in all we have a very good variety this year, and I´m looking forward to seeing everyone at the festival, and hope as many people as possible will participate in all the exciting activities we are offering! Also, we are so glad to offer high quality food for both children and adults, and will remind everyone of the fact that it is also allowed to bring their own lunch pack.” —zd

Aiming at educating the public about the internal functioning of the human body, the organisation behind this exhibition hope that by seeing what BODY WORLDS Vital has to offer, its visitors will take more interest in the science of anatomy and physiology. It is the belief of the organisers that once people get to see and learn, first hand about the ways in which our bodies work, and see just how fragile they are, they will be more inclined to opt for healthy and sustainable lifestyles. Moreover, the organisers hold a firm opinion that basic life science information, such as how human bodies function and how they look like

should be information available to everyone. The authenticity of the specimens of this exhibition allows visitors to experience the phenomenon of the human body and sparkle the curiosity as to how unique, elegant, and complex our bodies really are. BODY WORLDS Vital offers its visitors a profound understanding on a broad scale of the function and structure of healthy bodies, as well as to what extent poor health and lifestyle choices affect us. This exhibition has shown to engage its visitors, by stimulating their interest and curiosity as to how us, humans, function. Something that might catch your eye: All the specimens in the BODY WORLDS Vital are real and were willed by donors. A process named Plastination permanently preserves these specimens. Plastination is done by using plastic materials such as silicone rubber, polymers, and resins to replace the fluids in the body. —to

This government-sponsored event originally begun in 1987 for music and is designed to celebrate, showcase, and inspire cultural expressions by youth. Over twenty thousand youth participate each year nationwide. UKM is divided into three levels: local, regional, and national festivals. There are four hundred local festivals, nineteen regional festivals, and in June the five hundred chosen participants gather in Trondheim for the national festival. The UKM administration emphasises that this is not a talent show and awards are given based on “originality, creativity, the performers’ ability to create contact with the audience, as well as quality.” Art and cultural

expression of all kinds are welcome, thanks to the UKM’s “culture in all directions” model. From animations to dance, whittling to story telling, this festival will surprise and inspire. UKM’s aims are diversity and inclusivity. “UKM will stimulate and enhance young people’s cultural activities – locally, regionally and nationally. UKM should be a nationwide event – open to all young people.” This year’s national festival in Trondheim is a four-day event beginning on 21 June. Check it out and support these young artists. —rs

Torvet PRICE






he season of eating food and drinking beer outside has just begun in Trondheim, and bellies are rumbling. “This year’s Martnan is taking place in the buzzing market square of Trondheim, Torvet, and is set to attract more than 100,000 people,” says Kirsten Schultz, Manager of Midtbyen, organisers of the popular annual food event. Visitors can enjoy up to 250 stands with Norwegian and international food, as well as clothing, sweets, sports equipment and more. Kirsten also revealed that several concerts will be taking place on the Torvet stage, in cooperation with Starmus, which will be happening simultaneously (see our mini programme on pages 28-35). Martnan, as always, includes the ever-popular local farmers market. “Bondens Marked Trøndelag will be at Martnan in Trondheim with our usual abundance of locally produced food specialties,” explained Market Manager, Øygunn Skaret. “It is an excellent opportunity to explore the rich food culture of the region, and perhaps even discover a new favourite or two.”

If Martnan is one course on the on the culinary menu this summer, then Trondheim is in for a feast, because the delights do not end there. There has been a recent flourish of notable restaurant openings, including Folk og Fe’s latest creation at Grillstad Marina, Land og Strand (certain to be a fave among water watchers), Bula Bistro (Renee Fagerhøi’s new place), and Inge Johnsen’s new concept in the old cafe at the library (local food specialist from Lian restaurant). Furthermore, attention to good food (and drink) at other events has sky rocketed in recent years. Every festival from Juba Juba (see page 55) to Mid Norway’s Knitting Festival (page **) proudly announces their attention to foody details. It seems the way to a festival goer’s heart is through their mouth: the days of rained-down beer in sloppy plastic mugs and grey nondescript hotdogs are largely a thing of the past. And to cap it all off we are only a few months away from this year’s food festival and brewery festival! Look out for a special insert in the next issue of The List ( JulyAugust issue #17). —wlw

LADEHAMMER NEEDS YOU! “The volunteers are Ladehammerfestivalen’s biggest asset. Everyone from the management to the food vendors are volunteering. Every year we need more volunteers to cook, rig, host, sell food and more. This year is no exception. We cannot give any rewards or free tickets, but we can promise that it will be fun!

This year’s charity is the FIRE foundation – a non-profit that provides social and sports-oriented services to people struggling with addiction, as well as others who may want a safe, abstinent environment. Perhaps the best way to contribute is to pick up some Ladehammerlettøl. Ladehammerlettøl is one of 2017’s surprises: low-alcohol craft beer from Klostergården and Monkey Brew, brewed exclusively for Ladehammerfestivalen. —bpk

Digital virtuality is thus producing a new and different idea of the artistic material, and working with concrete, physical materials these artists are materializing digitized daily life. In the process they have become 'post-digital'." 01 MAY - 19 MAY
