In the fall, was the rededication of the national museum, the largest art event in Sweden – in spring is the reopening of the Röhsska museum. In the autumn of 2016, took the Gothenburg cultural committee of the the drastic decision to close the council-owned museum for fashion, design and crafts, after years of internal conflict. But also under-funding and lack of renovation contributed to perspective the problem that we.
Now I hope for a renaissance for the venerable museum. In the summer, got the Röhsska a new manager in Norwegian Nina Due, which has resulted in a reorganization. The entrance hall has been remodelled to improve accessibility and provide a more welcoming impression, while the fine collection has been enriched with new acquisitions and received new presentations. If the betting also leads to more catchpenny temporary exhibitions remains to be seen.
the Modern museum's successful director, Daniel Birnbaum just stopped and parhästen Ann-Sofi Noring been elevated to the acting superintendent. According to the Ministry of culture, can a new manager be appointed only after the formation of the government is clear, but my guess is that it takes longer than that, judging by how the man caught with the appointment of The superintendent.
Modern and other state museums have far worse challenges in the spring after the Moderates and the Christian democrats strongly cut down the budget for culture and forced through a slopning of the free entrance. This is the second time the museums with short notice need to plan and reduce their expenditure, despite the fact that exhibitions are often contracted several years in advance.
Disrespectful, says I, and sadly for the audience of both the democratic and programmatic reasons. The risk for the less expansive activities is obvious.

In 2.5 years, the Röhsska museum has been closed, as a result of arbetsplatsproblem and in need of renovation. So the reopening is long overdue. The museum has been given a new entrance and the new main exhibition ”Inspiration east Asia”. Also three temporary exhibitions open, with the new acquisitions, the icelandic designer Brynjar Sigurdarson and Fredrik Paulsens democratic design project where visitors can make the chairs in place.Constantin Hansen ”En lille pige, Elise Købke, with a kop in front of”, 1850.

During the 1800s the first half of the year Denmark was hit hard by war and crises, at the same time as the city's cultural life flourished in the romantic characters. The national museum program is now the lovely Danish guldålderskonsten in a collaboration with the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen. Artists turned from the everyday misery and depicted nature and the emerging bourgeois life with the intimacy, freshness and detail.
