Welcome to an unusual art experience at Munchmuseet - a house filled with painting, mystique and fun!
We are entering our final time at Tøyen, where Munchmuseet has lived for over 50 years. Here we have created a home filled with art and knowledge from Edvard Munch´s life. Now we want to invite all children to the house of Munch: come and check it out and experience art in new ways!
Departing from Bjørvika’s industrial history, artist Pedro Gómez-Egaña has created the art installation The Voice of Jacob at Dawn. Here visitors may step into the room of a fictional character loosely based on Jacob Jarmann, one of the founders of Nyland’s Verksted in 1854. This manufacturer, which at one time was Norway’s largest shipyard, was situated at the mouth of the Aker River, where the Opera and the new Munch Museum stand today. Visitors are invited to sit on the character’s bed and may notice that the room gradually changes as the story unfolds.
The contemporary, young Norwegian jazz scene is extremely vibrant. Through this concert series, the Munch Museum turns the spotlight towards a new generation of musicians who not only breaks through genre barriers, but also looks back through music history by drawing inspiration from the avant garde jazz of the 1960's and 70's.
This concert series is curated by Espen Horne of the Bobby Hughes Experience and Jassbox, and takes place in the museum's concert hall.
