The museum will, as one of five museums in the literary museum network Litteraturnettverket, participate in an interdisciplinary documentation and research project on museums as commemorative-political intermediaries through reflection on the role of history in a modern democracy.

The project will run from autumn 2015 until spring 2018, and will culminate in a free e-book. Funding of NOK 650,000, split over three years, has been granted by the Arts Council Norway.

For questions in connection with the research project, please contact Anita Estensen on e-mail anita.estensen [at] or telephone no. +47 93 03 21 29.
