A place to make


The monumental brick-building with the name Borgen, in the middle of Oslo Old Town, was a hugely visual and historical hub for cultural productions on Norway's capital for 20 years.


The brick walls and key location made it a key navigational spot in more than one way.  

The book takes a historical look at what Borgen meant to Oslo and the cultural life that comes with it. As it was cleared from the face of Earth to make way for new infrastructure, what value had Borgen represented to the development of the city? Through photos, texts and art projects, the book documents aspects related to this.
