OCA invites you to a guided tour through the exhibition 'Forms of Modern Life: From the Archives of Guttorm Guttormsgaard' by the curators Marta Kuzma and Pablo Lafuente.

'Forms of Modern Life: From the Archives of Guttorm Guttormsgaard' is an exhibition taking as a starting point Guttorm Guttormsgaard's archives of printed materials and art objects. The exhibition considers the process by which the printed form becomes in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries a universal, egalitarian form of expression. The project explores how artists such as Thomas Bewick, Frans Masereel, Albert Jærn, Hannah Ryggen, Peder Balke and Lars Hertervig employed specific graphic forms to address the cultural and political conditions of their time.

Please note that the tour will be held in English.
