Michael Safaric Branthwaite: Contemporary Witness

From mid-August to December 2020, British artist Michael Safaric Branthwaite  explored the place of Falstad and the layers of history from a distance using online archives and the specialist skills and knowledge of the staff at Falstad. He worked on creating links between the material culture of the past and contemporary debates.

The project has its own website where he shared his reflections and presented his artistic work in weekly blog posts.
