Tenthaus: Pepsi Max is my thing

November 11, 2023


November 11, 2023

Join Kari Max, the new artistic persona of performance artist Kirsty Kross as she uncovers Norway’s obsession with Pepsi Max at Tenthaus

Location: Tenthaus (Maridalsveien 3)
Date: November 11
Time: 15.00
Type: Lecture/performance

The event is free, open to everyone and requires no registration.

About the lecture/performance:

 Currently Norwegians are the biggest consumers of this sugar-free soda drinking around 9% of the Pepsi Max produced globally (and that figure does not include Norwegians shopping at the Swedish border...) 

Drawing parallels with Norway’s fossil fuel riches and subsequent plans to drill mass amounts of CO2 into rocks beneath the North Sea through Carbon Capture and Storage, Kari Max deals with the challenges of maintaining a maximum lifestyle (with maximum taste) in the times of the climate crisis. 

Kirsty Kross and Kari Max will both appear in the lecture performance which will also feature a spectacular Pepsi Max “stunt”! <br>
