Contemporary Art Stavanger consists of an online art journal as well as a physical residency program for critics, writers and researchers. Through our work, we aim to contribute meaningful conversation relevant to the Stavanger region’s art scene, while at the same time connecting the content to a larger national and international discourse – we therefore publish in both Norwegian and English. In addition to reviews, essays, and interviews, we explore the expansive possibilities of CAS’ online platform and investigate different ways of working with writers, residencies, and the format of art writing and criticism. We at CAS are dedicated to presenting a wide range of perspectives, voices, and subject matter.
Our significant archive of texts from the last decade serves as a resource for artistic and cultural research. CAS also maintains a list of regional institutions and residency opportunities, and the CAS online Arts Calendar provides an overview of current and upcoming exhibitions, events and performances.
CAS was founded in 2014 by Marte Danielsen Jølbo, Heather Jones, and Astrid Helen Windingstad. Today, the site is run by Director / Editor Astrid Helen Windingstad and International Editor Heather Jones. The CAS Board of Directors consists of two external members and a representative from the editorial board: current board members include Helga Nyman (Chairman of the Board) and André Gali (Board member).
We follow the editorial guidelines set forth by the Norwegian Redaktørplakaten and Vær Varsom-plakaten. CAS is a member of the Norwegian Tidsskriftforeing.
