  • An installation presenting more than 500 proposals of personal flags made in workshops, related to the project, at diverse schools around the country.
  • An interactive installation called “Endre”, where the current Norwegian flag could be altered by visitors.
  • An interactive installation where visitors were allowed to develop their own flag, or see the flag designed by others by using the digital platforms ”Skape” and ”Se”.
  • The subtle artwork ”Memoria”, where all windows of the gallery were blinded, as a gesture reminding the windows of Oslo, -still- covered after the terrorist attack in Oslo.

The exhibition was open the same day as the 90 anniversary of the Svalbard treaty and was promoted and covered by local media.
