Temporary exhibition - From Chopin and Tellefsen to XXI century
‘Between national identity and a community of cultures: from Chopin and Tellefsen to the 21st century’ is part of a long-term programme designed to show the processes that drive changes in national distinctness towards a new identity based on a community of cultures.
The project focuses on identity formation in different countries and their common traits, strengthening inter-cultural understanding, and involves cooperation with such bodies as the Norwegian Society of Composers and Arne Nordheim Institut.
One of aims is to show the originality in music, with Norwegian and Polish strands to the fore (Chopin/Tellefsen).
The project receives €691 740 from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
