Located in the former Grønland prison in one of Oslo’s most culturally diverse district, the Intercultural Museum challenges visitors to evaluate their own prejudices and expand their understanding of other cultures, as well as reflect on important notions such as racism, xenophobia and bias in everyday life. We will be given a short introduction to the museum and the history of the building before we start the guided tour of the exhibit Typical. The tour will end with a brief introduction to the exhibit Beyond Barcode, which will give us some ideas on what Oslo may look like in the future.
