Moderna Museet podcast

What goes on in an art museum when it’s closed to visitors? And what are the new director of Moderna Museet, Gitte Ørskou’s thoughts on art and her plans for the Museum? Now you can find out in the Moderna Museet podcast where Kristin Lundell, press officer at the Museum, invites colleagues to answer her questions about art, the art world and the day-to-day activities at an art museum! The podcast is in Swedish.

Learn more about Moderna Museet and get a clearer idea about the work carried out every day in order to exhibit the Swedish people’s large collection of modern art. Also, get answers to questions you didn’t even know you had: Are three-year-olds expressionists or futurists?  Can it be hazardous for a conservator to get inspired at work? And can a compulsive need to straighten paintings when you’re at a restaurant be classed as an occupational injury? Extra: How do you curate the Venice Biennale or decide what art to hang on the walls of the prime minister’s office?

The Moderna Museet podcast started in 2019. Opening music: “Walk on By” by Perro Del Mar. The podcast is in Swedish.
