Thesis description:
On the seaside of Oslo, the area of Bjørvika is undergoing a complete transformation in a culturally-driven redevelopment. The embeddedness of art in a process that reconfigures not only the area physically, socially and economically, but also reinvents its public character, calls for attention to how art is not only appearing in public, but also participates in the production of public arenas in the city.
The thesis explores ways in which public art interacts with the production of public spaces. It outlines art as a knowledge field in urban development that generates knowledge about dimensions of the city which otherwise remain unarticulated. Art is argued to enable necessary forms of urban learning and to perform an epistemological critique of the redevelopment. Public art is considered as a phenomena that we can think with in order to better understand the city as a sensible and inter-subjective field. 
The approach of the study is empirical and theoretical. It discusses a selection of art projects in relation to a theoretical framework foremost consisting of aesthetic philosophy, art theory and urban theory.
