What lies in between the threads of a tapestry that has accidentally become a memorial, with the trauma of a terrorist attack encapsulated in a textile scar? Did we ever live on a star, as Hannah Ryggen envisioned in her largest tapestry ever, a monumental yet pliable and vulnerable utterance of compassion? What is a hero; what is a nation, and how can we be pushed to look in new directions to shape a less conform and authoritarian future? The multi-part main triennial exhibition Anti-Monumentexplores the void, the statement that dares to wonder, the anonymous individual, the celebration of the personal and the metaphorical loss.

Visit the triennale exhibition "Anti-monument" in its four venues
