Visitors Signe Marie Andersen
"My point of departure for this exhibition is an idea I have been contemplating about Mass as a constant entity. / Mass containing our existence, history and future, hopes and moments. As well as our time as visitors. / It's dark, then light, then dark again."
"The exhibition comprises 22 new photographs and a short film.
A small bronze figure is sitting inside a glass bell. Her name is Konstanse, and she embodies the Mass."
—Signe Marie Andersen, August 2019
Tiina Kivinen is interested in the balance between the forest planning and the natural development and growth of the forest. In this project she is not only making original graphics but also installation and documentary. In her prints, Kivinen masters old techniques of intaglio family such as mezzotint and drypoint. Using these time-consuming printmaking techniques can be seen as a quiet protest against the ever-quickening pace of life.
Open Window Fredrik Værslev
Where does the painting begin and end? In a series of window paintings, Fredrik Værslev intervenes in the history of Kunstnerforbundet. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the main hall, and in this connection Værslev makes an intervention in the exhibition room which reminds us of the various transformations during the time that has passed. The main hall, the art institution and its exhibition history provide a framework for Værselv's new paintings and exhibition architecture.
Anna Marie Sigmond Gudmundsdottir

Hanne Grieg Hermansen
"Time, manual work, shift of values, illusion and the tipping point between drawing and photography are important components of my artistic work. For this exhibition I discuss the main condition of photography, namely the light, both as a concrete form study and a study where the goal is to recreate the very effect light has on the perception apparatus. Imitating the eye and the camera as a visual and visual technology, respectively, is central to several parts of my project.”
ASTRUP FEARNLEY MUSEET
Anselm Kiefer – Books and Woodcuts Anselm Kiefer
Anselm Kiefer originally intended to be a poet, but as we know, he became a visual artist instead. Still, his works bear witness to the significant role words and literature have always played in his life. The exhibition Anselm Kiefer – Books and Woodcuts focuses on the connection between Kiefer’s art and literature in general, a dialogue that is present in a number of works from various periods in the form of paintings, sculptures, woodcuts and artist’s books.
Graphics from the collection
In Graphics from the collection, a number of graphic works from Kunstnerforbundets collection are presented. The graphic prints have been selected from hundreds of works that have been misplaced and forgotten in the gallery over the decades. More precisely, one can say that this artistic production stems from an accumulation rather than a collection. The project includes mapping and cataloging, as well as a contextualisation of artworks, artistry and exhibition history.

Forever Henrik Kleppe Worm-Müller
For a longer working period in the studio, Henrik Kleppe Worm-Müller has moved in and out of memories of his beloved, deceased father, Dag Worm-Müller. The exhibition Forever can, as one of many possibilities, be read as an attempt to create a new reality where the father lives on through the paintings. Alternately obscure memories of growing up and diverse vivid notions of who the father really was, form the basis for the production of all the paintings in the exhibition.

SILVER SERIES 04: Ed Atkins Ed Atkins
In his video works, Atkins plumbs the corporeal depths of digital moving imagery. Computer generated animation, emo musical theatre, collaged stock imagery, field recording, performance capture, disease, motion graphics and starless humour muster within his videos. Atkins’ unique visual language, both melancholic and absurd, confronts the viewer with intimate, arcane visions that seem caught in a purgatory of afterwards.
Luke Van Gelderen
Based on a two-hour online durational performance, the work Chatroulette by Luke van Gelderen, tests the relationship between social media users, within the masculine sphere. This video chat site pairs users at random with no shared context about where or whom the users are connected with. The interactions, whether positive or negative, ultimately confront users with themselves creating a situation where they unwittingly become the subject of the work.

My Dream – Our Common Future? Gelawesh Waledkhani, Iffit Qureshi, Thierry Geoffroy, Tomas Rafa
One of the most obvious contemporary structures are population migrations—from political refugees to labour migrants and family reunions. Regardless of the reasons, most people share the hope for a better life. On the other side we find xenophobia, stricter immigration rules, and strong far-right movements. How can one relate to these contemporary peculiarities, which obviously are not reconcilable?
