The Researcher in Residence program (RiR) offers an opportunity for art researchers to live and work in the picturesque town of Åsgårdstrand. The town is known for housing the only remaining intact home after Edvard Munch, and scenes from many of his iconic paintings come alive in the narrow, quaint streets.

RiR was established in 2022 with the mission of bringing art related research from both national and international scholars to strengthen the academic research at Haugar Art Museum and Munch’s House.

The program is joint effort between Haugar Art Museum and Munch’s House in partnership with Horten Municipality and Vestfold County Council.

RIR provides comfortable accommodations in a small, detached house in the town centre, located within walking distance to the shoreline and previous home of Edvard Munch (Munch’s House).

The residency includes travel costs and living expenses. Length of stay: From two weeks to two months.

The reseracher needs to present ongoing research in Åsgårdstrand and at the Haugar Art Museum. The presentations will be paid. 

How to apply
Please send us: a statement of intention of your project that includes your preferred dates / your curriculum vitae that includes your academic credentials and, if available, your previous publications. Deadline: March 1, 2023

About Munch’s House
Munch’s House: The property in Åsgårdstrand is Edvard Munch’s only preserved home. Edvard Munch bought the small house in 1898. He called it Lykkehuset (Happy House). The house is built in timber on one floor and is paneled on the outside. The interior was modest. In the living room, which also served as the painter’s bedroom, there were two large wooden beds, a worktable, an old folding table, corner cupboards and two armchairs. Many of his personal belongings are still in the house.

He also built a studio just south-east of the house. The studio was later demolished and rebuilt as a replica. After Munch’s death in 1944 Horten Municipality acquired the house and grounds, and it has been a museum site since 1947.
