Breaking Down Barriers

Many people get uncomfortable and stressed by the sheer thought of experiencing an art exhibition. Since its opening in October 2021, the new MUNCH seeks to break down barriers that keep people from setting foot into art museums. Rooted in the inclusiveness of Edvard Munch’s artistic project, our exhibition spaces integrate learning, digital and interactive offers in a way that supports the art and that makes our visitors feel seen and welcome. Join our talk to learn more about the new MUNCH, how we work with audiences, where we failed and how we challenge what experiencing art means.
