The work was a part of the exhibition Lytting og Sidespor. Atleierbesøk. The exhibition showed works by Mona Orstad Hansen, Tove Kommedal, Kristin Velle-George, Helene Espedal-Selvåg and Christine Hansen, all artists from Tou Atelierhus. The group started a reading circle at Atelierhuset several years ago, the reading circle developed into studio visits which in turn became a group exhibition.

During a year, the artists used different approaches to the phenomenon of studio visits. They have explored artistic methods, sources of inspiration and submitted first sketches for the exhibition. In parallel, the artists have worked on their individual projects which was shown in the exhibition. The conversations from all the meetings formed the basis of a fanzine taht was launched at the exhibition opening. The fanzine consists of texts based on the conversations between the artists and a text by the artist Ragnhild Aamås.
