CATALOGUE for a new exhibition at the Norwegian National Museum of Justice

Galskapens-fengsel

WORK | In connection with the exhibition Galskapens fengsel at The Norwegian National Museum of Justice, I have designed the catalogue. The exhibition’s main theme is the dangerous lunatics as a social problem through the ages. How have we seen the insanity and mental incapacity, and what has been done to solve this problem? What are the current challenges in security psychiatry? I was inspired by one of the first protocols used at The Criminal Asylum when I designed the cover for the catalogue. The use of creamy white paper together with black and white images gives the catalogue the “old” feeling. See more from the catalogue.
