Description

The exhibition Through Nature emphasizes how big a role nature plays in Munch's art, and stories from nature are illuminated through Munch's images.

Munch was also interested in new discoveries in natural history. Charles Darwin's hypothesis that new life forms arise and old perish, was new at Munch's time. The discovery of radioactivity and radiation were made when Munch was a young man. Such discoveries and thoughts challenged the current view of nature and man's place in it. Munch studies this both in images and texts.

The exhibition takes place both at the Munch Museum and at the Natural History Museum, where both the Botanical Gardens and the museum buildings are used. Both places will get to experience both art and nature. There will be fossils, minerals, stuffed animals and animals in glass, scientific books, illustrations and posters put in the context of Munch's design.

It is the first time Munch Museum and the Natural History Museum collaborates.

The exhibition has a joint ticket of 110 kroner, which can be used in both museums.
