The organisers of Old Habits Die Hard are particularly excited about this show. The Norwich Gallery is the only UK venue for the exhibition's international tour.

Originally organised and produced within a two-month time scale, the show was conceived by Lise Nellemann and Heman Chong for the artist-run space Sparwasser HQ in Berlin.

Curators Lynda Morris and Andrew Hunt explained their decision to get the show to come to the Norwich Gallery.

"We went to visit the show in Berlin and liked the idea that the exhibition constructed and revealed new connections between artist-led organisations throughout the world."

Fifty artists across the world were asked to choose their favourite video.

There was no topic or other issue to relate to when selecting the video, except that it had to be chosen by the space or collective.

Apart from being an international video screening, which focuses on artists curating, Old Habits Die Hard also researches and maps artist collectives and networks and the communication between them. This raises issues about self-organisation and self-representation.

The exhibition talks about how alternative economies and values evolve. The videos received are installed according to the character of the work.

There will be a wall projection and three monitors installed in Norwich Gallery. Once a day a video compilation will be screened.

The exhibition will change from day to day. On the monitors the audience will be able to choose what they want to see.

After the Norwich show, the exhibition will stop at Kunstnernes Hus, Olso, Norway, from 6 February to 12 March 2004 and Platform, Istanbul, Turkey, from March to April 2004.
