Photo exhibition about the Anniversary Exhibition in Frognerparken in 1914
The anniversary exhibition in 1914 was in all ways an event out of the ordinary. The exhibit was constructed rapidly and then disappear again, shortly after the gates closed on the last day 11 October 1914. As a sunken Atlantis, all the impressive buildings disappeared. The only thing that was left was the big bridge construction over the Frogner ponds.
To be completely sure that this show really took place, one has to resort to photographs and film from that time. The photographs tell the story of a small, young nation, which wanted to prove to itself and the outside world that it had enough determination, initiative and creativity to bear the future. A film in an edited version will be shown inside the museum and will provide additional depth to the story.
