Take Liberty!
11 April - 10 August 2014

National Museum of Norway
Museum of Contemporary Art
Bankplassen 4, Oslo


This international group exhibition presents works that explore issues to do with democracy, national identity and personal freedom. The defence of individual freedom has become a controversial topic in which the concept of the nation plays an ambiguous role. 

 

A key theme of the exhibition is freedom of speech. The exhibition shows works by international artists with a defining interest in the opportunities, but also the threats, associated with free expression in a world still plagued by systematic violations of human rights. 

 

Artists and artist groups represented in exhibition: John Akomfrah, Maja Bajevic, Andrea Bowers, Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson, Phil Collins, Jeremy Deller, Olga Egorova and Natalya Pershina (Chto Delat), Gardar Eide Einarsson, Jihan El-Tahri, Matias Faldbakken, Rainer Ganahl, Sharon Hayes, Marianne Heier, Susan Hiller, Glenn Ligon, Jumana Manna and Sille Storihle, Aleksandra Mir, Pussy Riot, Slavs and Tatars, Superflex, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Ai Weiwei.
