About Save Nationalgallery in Oslo
Without going through parliament, the Government has decided to relocate the National Gallery, The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design and the Museum for Contemporary Art to Vestbanen. The Minister for Culture Trond Giske and the Ministry for Cultural Affairs have been resolute in their decision making , and all debate has been stifled.
We, the organisers of this action, cannot accept this.
Before any such drastic steps are taken to dismantle the National Gallery and the Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, we consider that all possible alternatives must be debated and evaluated, both amongst people and in Parliament. The artistic, economic and city planning aspects must be given due consideration.
Prestige should have no bearing on the matter. There is no shame in turning back.
