Under the slogan "Streetart for human rights - against terror and intolerance" several streetartists made murals in Oslo 1.-19.8.2011. The aim was to create an art walk of memorials to the victims of the 22.7.11 terrorist acts. This is an interesting mix of streetart, activism, politics and memorial, presented on both temporary boards and murals that will last. This was as far as I know one of the first art responses to the 22.7.11. I am not sure if this will be the strongest art response to that. But it is great that also Oslo now has public art by such great artists. I am curious if there will be a new happening this year, and in that case what the topic will be.
