  • The National Museum – The Study Room

In conjunction with the exhibition “Carroll Dunham. Where am I? Prints 1985–2022”, the National Museum offers a chance to peep inside the portfolio of prints it received as a gift from the American artist.

Dunham has been exploring a variety of print techniques since the mid-1980s. His works are full of offbeat, often humorous figures that seem to raise questions, both directly and indirectly, about gender and the body.

With his tendency to switch between idioms while exploring formal aesthetic issues and themes, Dunham produces pictures that are hard to categorise. In the Reading Room this Wednesday, we take a closer look at the artist’s relationship to pop art and the cartoon aesthetic, with the portfolio of prints he donated to the National Museum as our point of departure.

Every Wednesday from 14.00 to 16.00 we offer an opportunity to learn more about the National Museum’s collection of prints and drawings. In the Reading Room you can get up close to original works by artists such as Francisco de Goya, Edvard Munch, Max Klinger, Käthe Kollwitz, Anna Eva Bergman, and Lotte Konow Lund.

No reservation required. To attend, all you need is a valid entrance ticket to the National Museum.

Welcome to the event!
