"House of Norway" 11 October 2019 to 26 January 2020 at the Museum Angewandte Kunst


Starting in the autumn of 2019, the Museum Angewandte Kunst will devote its entire exhibition space to the Frankfurt Book Fair’s guest of honour 2019. As a House of Norway, it will assemble outstanding exponents of Norway’s art and culture, design, handicraft and architecture. One of the show’s main highlights will be prints by Edvard Munch never before presented to the public. Also awaiting discovery will be works by contemporary artists such as Ingrid Torvund, Kari Steihaug, Frank Ekeberg, Tori Wrånes or Svein Flygari Johansen. A guest performance by the Sámi National Theatre Beaivváš and artworks by Britta Marakatt-Labba, Máret Ánne Sara, Jorn Are Keskitalo and others will provide insights into Sámi art and culture. Visitors will also encounter important designers, among them Tone Vigeland, Torbjørn Kvasbø, Regine Juhls, Grete Prytz and Peter Opsvik

Examples of modern Norwegian architecture, like that of Sverre Fehn or Joar Nango, and the area of social design as well as contemporary impulses in fashion and new Nordic cuisine will stand for a creative exploration of a changing world.
