University Museum of Bergen

Can exhibitions engage?

Is it OK that Facebook and Google know all about you? Are social media arenas for a sense of community or for bullying? Are children rightless in Norway today? The various questions in the Constitution Exhibition spark debate and are a teaching resource.

Grunnlovsutstillingen innvandring og demokrati

The Constitution Exhibition "We 1814 - 2014" opened in May 2014 and will remain open for the next several years at the University Museum of Bergen. The purpose of the exhibition is to engage people in conversation and debate about our political values, and not least about the challenges that pose a threat to democracy.

The objective of the Museum is that the exhibition will be actively used for events, debates and not least various types of teaching offered. The exhibition is now used as an educational resource by social science courses at the University of Bergen, both in comparative politics and administration and organisations science. In addition, the teaching plan about freedom of expression for upper secondary schools is popular.
