Til Ungdommen Workshop
Magne held this workshop at his atelier in Asker. Participants of this workshop were students from across Norway with the aim of creating a time capsule containing their written thoughts about the tragic events on July 22, 2011.
On May 19, a retrospective exhibition opened at the Blaafarveværket museum in Nyfossum, Norway. The Exhibition consists of works from different periods including ceramic jars, woodcuts and prints.
The works consist of four large monotypes on hospital sheets, originally intended for Futura Plus, and a selection of twelve smaller monotypes on sheets and paper.
Magne’s previously unseen ‘Futura Plus’ works were represented in a group exhibition called ‘Under stor press’ (‘under pressure’), which included over 800 works from 80 artists.
A large warehouse in Tjuvholmen was covered on two sides by six huge butterflies made by Damien Hirst.
