The Lydgalleriet Retrospective presents a series of conversations, accounts, reflections and responses to the activity of the gallery since it's first emergence in 2005.
Appearing for the first time in English language translation, the texts and images chart the growth of Lydgalleriet from the early years up until the present day. The book presents an important survey of Nordic sound art and reflects upon wider themes within sonic culture, with contributions from multiple notable voices within the field. This book, first launched at Bergen Art Book Fair 2020, coincides with the gallery's move to its own purpose built space in Strandgaten, Bergen.
Lydgalleriet Retrospective 2005 – 2020 is in digital form and free to access and download from http://retrospective.lydgalleriet.no.
The book was collected and edited by Sissel Lillebostad, Julie Lillelien Porter and Samuel Brzeski, and designed by Blank Blank. Financial support for the project was kindly provided by Bergen Municipality, Arts Council Norway and Office for Contemporary Art Norway.
