Education Coordinator at the museum, Ida Sannes Hansen, highly recommends a tour.
- Contemporary artists emphasizes the idea behind the artwork. A tour will provide a deeper understanding of the thoughts behind for example Jeff Koons' large porcelain statue of Michael Jackson and Bubbles, or why Damien Hirst has placed a cow and a calf in a formaldehyde tank, she says.
It is a strong wish to communicate the art to the public, and the museum has emphasised having qualified tour guides and museum hosts available for the audience.
- Our experienced tour guides are engaging and will provide a richer experience of the exhibitions, says Ida Sannes Hansen.
