ArtSceneTrondheim (AST) is an artist-run organisation that highlights events in the contemporary art scene in the city of Trondheim. Our main activity is the web site www.trondheimkunsthall.com where we publish art-criticism and pictures from exhibitions, events and happenings. AST also organises seminars.

The project was started due to a great need in the city for serious professional debate about contemporary art, and to challenge the existing order of things.
We work to provoke debate and stimulate the production of art critisim on contemporary art, with the aim of creating a platform for critical discussion across different generations of artists, art lovers, art haters, soon to be art lovers and soon to be art haters.
We do this by making the contemporary scene visible for the rest of the nordic region, through our picture blog/archive, and by publishing rapidly art criticism every month. The web page has between 6 - 9000 visitors every month.

ArtSceneTrondheim is supported by the Norwegian Arts Council, Stiftelsen Fritt Ord (The Norwegian Free Speech Organisation), among others.
