The Arctic – While the ice is melting

225 objects

Through the exhibition you will learn more about the Arctic, its resources, and how climate change is affecting the area. You will also be able to explore traditional clothing, housing and means of transportation. In the exhibition you can also leave a promise to yourself and the planet - what can you do to decrease your ecological footprint? What happens in the Arctic affects you, and your way of life affects the Arctic.

The exhibition stems from the collaborative research on the subject People in the Arctic in the light of climate change led by Lotten Gustafsson Reinius, Hallwyl Visiting Professor of Ethnology at Nordiska museet and Stockholm University.

Nordiska museet collaborates with exhibition designers MUSEEA. Documentary photographer Camilla Andersen has created footage for the short films produced by the museum in collaboration with local communities and researchers. The project is partly financed by the Nordic Culture Fund and FORMAS, the Research Council for Sustainable Development.
