Skewed history at the museum
The theme of the Museum Association and Skeivt Archive's webinar "Skeiv historie på museum" 10 / 12-2020 was Pride Arts' method and tradition. Museologist and art historian Mathias Skaset opened the event by talking about queer museology, queer exhibitions in Norway and queer exhibition strategies. The webinar was arranged to inspire museums to mark the 50th anniversary of the repeal of the Criminal Code § 213. Skaset, who is also a member of Pride Art, told about his master's thesis "I Fought, Therefore I Am: A Study of Pride Art and Skewed Perspectives on Museums".
At its regular annual arena during Oslo Pride, Pride Art focuses on queer literature with an exciting and varied daily program with author meetings, reading aloud, book baths and performances by authors. In 2019, we gathered gay authors from different generations for dialogue where we asked the panel. Do we specifically need queer literature today? Geir Bie and publisher Arve Juritzen led the conversation between the first generations of queer authors Gudmund Vindland and Gerd Brantenberg.

Broken Silence during Skeive Sørlandsdager 2021
The title of the exhibition was created when this year's pride theme is International solidarity. We break the silence in solidarity with people around the world who experience discrimination, oppression and injustice. We do not want silence, this is a roar against violence and abuse. A cry for freedom, equality and justice. Som Urban dictionary sier: «Broken silence is the silence that drowns a situation after hearing or witnessing something heart-breaking”.
"Visibility is the antidote to shame and silence, and knowledge is the antidote to prejudice and hatred"
