The 2018 Barents Spektakel will focus on the tension between football and politics, inspired by Russia hosting the 2018 football world cup. Football as both a peace-making activity and a political instrument, as a competition culture and as an arena for mass worship; simultaneously in the context of grass-roots and super-capitalism.  The Barents Spektakel will manifest this focus through football-related art projects based on both regional sport success stories and fiction; as both football matches and a playful framework for bringing forward current regional issues.
