This Thursday the stage was set for a panel discussion at the Astrup Fearnley Museum about the private museum initiatives in a global / local context.

The panel consisted of Bo Nilsson, director of Artipelag Konsthall outside of Stockholm and with long experience from several private art institutions in Sweden, Janne Gallen-Kallela Sirén, director of the Helsinki Art Museum and one of the advocates of the Guggenheim's plans to establish itself in Helsinki, Gunnar B. Kvaran, director of the Astrup Fearnley Museum,  with a background from Bergen Art Museum and Reykjavik Art Museum and Sune Nordgren, artistic advisor and curator of Nordic Choice Art and Design and former director of the National Museum for Art, Architecture and Design as moderator.

Besides the discussion on the privately initiated museum's role in Scandinavia today the panel also discussed  the difference and similarities between the private and public sector and the challenges of the privately initiated museums may face in the future and also what function they can serve by them selves and together with the public museums.
