OCCAS-X-Ray_2In collaboration with the Museum of Cultural History, Oslo, the master students have designed permanent and contemporary exhibitions in Henrik Bull’s monumental museum at Tullinløkka (1903). Based on in-depth studies of collections and display techniques, the projects present curatorial interventions emphasizing the lost spatial qualities of the galleries. The result are re-interpretations of a diversity of archaeological and ethnographic material, spanning from Arctic fur and Norwegian polychrome sculpture to X-ray photography and Henrik Bull’s lost vitrines. The students have produced a catalog with essays dealing with theoretical and historical museum topics.
