Due to the pandemic of Covid-19, the Nordic Summer University Summer Session 2020 did not take place as a physical gathering, but instead took place in distant and dispersed formats of encounter, sharing and connection. The participants were invited to create a trace. Taking the advantage of the current environment, rather than collapsing under its restrictions, NSU thus opened a space for traditional and unconventional collaborations, experiments, unusual meet-ups, creative interventions and other innovative approaches. In all this, documentation, accessibility and shareability aspects were crucial.
Below you will find documentation for each trace of the 2020 Summer Symposium.
