Laurie Anderson will present a new musical performance based on Edvard Munch’s pictures. Anderson will reflect upon and visualize the themes of the exhibition in her characteristically playful and generous manner.
Laurie Anderson is an American avant-garde artist whose work spans performance art, pop music, and multimedia projects. Last year she was in Oslo presenting her film Heart of a Dog.
Meet current authors and artists who will reflect on the exhibition Towards the Forest - Knausgård on Munch, by opening up for a closer dialogue between different art forms. Among the contributors are names like Laurie Anderson, Karl Ove Knausgård, Ben Lerner, Aasne Linnestå and Jenny Hval.
