Guards intervened – Oslo: Adhesive attack on Munch’s “scream” fails


Climate and environmentalists in Norway have tried to cling to the frame of Edvard Munch’s world famous “Scream”. Guards at the National Museum in Oslo arrested three people, two of whom tried to cling to a painting, Oslo police said Friday.

The attempt failed, but glue residue remained on the glass holder. Damage to the painting was not reported.

“The Scream” is considered the most famous motif of the Norwegian artist Munch (1863-1944). One version from 1893 hangs in the Scandinavian country’s new national museum, and three others in the Munch Museum, also in the capital Oslo.

activists arrested
The activists came from the group Stop Oljeletinga (Stop Oil Exploration). Three women from Finland, Denmark and Germany have been arrested, according to police – their connection to Norway is under investigation.

In a statement, the group called, among other things, for the immediate cessation of all licenses for the exploration and development of new oil and gas deposits on the Norwegian continental shelf. Norway is one of the largest oil and gas producers in the world. In recent weeks, activists have attacked several works in several European museums and galleries to draw attention to the climate and environmental crisis, including the Natural History Museum in Vienna.
