Summer project in Hvervenbukta Pavilion


Organized by Vibeke Frost Andersen

Hvervenbukta, Norway

During my time at the Hvervenbukta Pavilion, I demonstrate my research materials as well as historical records from the 1960s Ethiopian student movement in various formats. Among the materials are personal sketchbooks, project-related scholarly reference books, notes from talks with student leaders, and video footage portraying Ethiopian students' experiences in the United States in the late 1950s. The resources were chosen to highlight the impact of external political culture, particularly radical left ideology, on societal cultural and political behavior, particularly among ethnic groups in Ethiopia. The Hvervenbukta pavilion is the first public display of the Marxist modern project.
