Karolin Tampere is a visual artist and freelance curator. The focus in her curatorial work is to approach it as an socio-political arena that has a critical responsibility which can foster alternative understandings of ecology and potentially other models of sustainability. Tampere has a BA in Visual Art from Bergen Academy of Art and Design and was part of de Appel Curatorial Program in 06/07. Since 2004 she is regularly contributing to the forever lasting art project Sørfinnset Skole/the nord land, a collaboration with the artists Søssa Jørgensen and Geir Tore Holm located in Gildeskål, North of Norway. In 2003 she and Åse Løvgren initiated the collaboration Rakett. During 2010 Rakett finalized COMMON LANDS – Allmannaretten, an exhibition project that through seminars, readers and art projects utilized the process of redevelopment of Oslo´s former industrial harbour, Bjørvika to highlight a number of issues associated with urban development, democracy, access to and the distribution of land. In 2016 and 2017, she has been a guest curator at Telemark Art Center initiating the group exhibitions FUTURUM – We Move Mountains and When Species Meet.
