As part of the concept for the festival, Professor Gunnar Danbolt will curate a two-part exhibition focusing on reactions to World War One in painting and another on the work of Håkon Bleken, born in Trondheim, 1948. Håkon Bleken is an artist who is not only interested in problems relating to form, in a modernistic manner – though these are important for him – but who also has given particular attention to existential questions, often given actuality through contemporary events and happenings. He was, for example, one of the first to reflect in painting on the massacre at Utøya. He is often inspired by literature, such as Henrik Ibsen and Thomas Mann, and by music. He is, therefore, an artist well suited for a festival with the title "In the Shadow of War". In addition, paintings created as reactions to the First World War will also be exhibited – admittedly not originals, but nevertheless good copies – such as one of the most shocking war paintings of World War One, namely Otto Dix’s The War (1932) and Per Krohg’s The Grenade (1916). Together, these exhibitions will accompany the music that will be performed, an accompaniment that will hopefully promote reflection and deeper understanding.
