Pictures from the Demonstration

Thousands in Oslo protested against ISIS and local extremists recruiting Norwegian youth to fight in Syria.

The demonstration, organized by young Muslims in Norway, gathered people of different religious and ethnicities together in Oslo against religious extremism and the crimes of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

The demonstrators marched through Oslo streets toward Norwegian Parliement (Stortinget) with slogans of “No to ISIS”, “ISIS is not in Islam’s Name”, “Against ISIS terror for Peace”.

When the protestors arrived at Eidsvold space, in front of Stortinget, the number has reached to almost ten thousand, according to the organizers.

The exhibition Masters meet juxtaposes Munch’s artworks with Ibsen’s drama, and initiates a dialogue between the two.

Edvard Munch and Henrik Ibsen are two of Norways greatest artists. Both have had a profound impact on international art. They never became close friends, but Edvard Munch was a huge admirer of Ibsen, and Ibsen appreciated and suppported the young artist.

They are linked by several portraits Munch made of the playwright and by other motifs in Munch’s art that are inspired by Ibsen’s plays. “When I read Ibsen I’m reading about myself,” Munch said. Peer Gynt, Ghosts, When We Dead Awaken and John Gabriel all appealed to the soul of the painter, sometimes so strongly that self-portraits emanated from Ibsen’s stage characters. They also worked with many of the same themes, pertaining to the many mysteries of the human soul.

Illustrasjoner og modeller fra utstillingen “Heavy metal & Punk fossils”. / uio.no

The exhibition “Heavy Metal And Punk Fossils” starts its tour around the natural history museums of the world from Oslo Natural History Museum. The exhibition can be seen from July 27.

For this occasion, the exhibition has been given a complete graphical overhaul, and several new items have been added to the exhibition, including a two-meter-long model of the trilobite Arcticalymene Visciousi, named in honor of Sid Vicious from SEX PISTOLS, and Greg Graffin from BAD RELIGION has personally signed a cast of the fossil bird named in his honor, Quiliania Graffini, for the exhibition. Mark Knopfler from DIRE STRAITS has purchased a complete skeleton cast of the dinosaur Masiakasaurus Knopfleri, and kindly lent it to the exhibition.

The background for the exhibition is the old scientific tradition that when a scientist discovers a new and unknown fossil, he gets to give it a scientific name. Some choose a name that reflects the shape of the animal, some choose a name that relates to where it’s found, and others choose to name them after their favorite rock stars. The resulting exhibition, “Heavy Metal And Punk Fossils”, explores this more amusing part of natural history by focusing on a series of bizarre fossils that all are named in honor of rock stars.

Photo: Xue Li | Fredrik Johansen was sitting at a cafe near Karl Johans Gate when we asked him the questions.

The result is surprising. Leo Tolstoy once said “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The result indicates the same pattern showing that what people miss is different, while what they will not miss is quite similar.

3 things that you will miss about Norway if you leave the country someday?

“Family. And only family,” says Fredrik Johansen.

“Skiing, nature and Freia milk chocolate,” says Anooshka.

“First is nature. It’s amazing that you can be in the middle of the forest just taking the t-bane, 20 minutes from Nationaltheatret,” noted Jimena Marín Jaime. “ Second is the Norwegian lifestyle: really relaxed, sporty and healthy. And the third thing I will miss, in my case,  is the opportunity to meet people all around the world. I mean, even though Norway is a small country, i found that there is a really cool social mixture,” says she.

Maud Berge states, “The main street Karl Johan, the fantastic garden by the castle and Aker Brygge.”

“Cheap salmon. Chateau Neuf. Skiing,” says Kristin Vego.

3 things you will not miss?

“Rain, the dark hours in winter and high prices,” from Anooshka.

Kristin Vego states, “ I will not miss: ridiculously expensive beer. The cold. The bread.”

“Wet cold snow, the dark in the winter and the lack of more international cuisine,” says Maud Berge.

“Snow and winter,” says Fredrik Johansen.

Jimena Marín Jaime offers her opinion compared with her home country,“The weather (especially from November to… we don’t know haha). The cost of some products: for example, buying a beer or beef in the supermarket.  I wont miss the silence in some places… I do miss to hear people in Spain talking all the time! Even though it killed me when i was living there. But I like Norway, I don’t regret at all having come here.”
