Rage in Order: Hannah Ryggen and Art with Marit Paasche
Following the opening of Hannah Ryggen: Woven Histories, art historian and Hannah Ryggen expert Marit Paasche came into the gallery to discuss the life and work of the artist.
Ryggen was born in 1894 and died in 1970, leaving behind an impressive array of works, where there is no distinction between life and art.
This talk uncovers the combative attitudes and strong political awareness which were driving forces in Ryggen’s art, as well as exploring the topics and people she addressed in her works.
