At Frognerseteren in Oslo, five towers in gold symbolize the struggle of the five war years for freedom and democracy. On Saturday, Roseslottet opened to the public.

Roseslottet 2020 is an art installation and an educational project that aims to tell the story of the occupation of Norway from 1940 to 1945.

The brothers Vebjørn Sand and Eimund Sand are artistically responsible for the project, which was to be opened to the public on May 8 – on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Norway in 1945. This was postponed due to the corona pandemic.

Now, Roseslottet will be open to the public until May 8 next year, and several concerts and cultural events are planned here during this period.

Five gold structures in the installation will symbolize the five war years, while a 26 meter high pillar will honor the war sailors and the navy. Among other things, there are 90 paintings that will show different sides of the occupation in the installation.

Roseslottet has a price tag of 50 million kroner, reports NRK. 2 million of this is public support.
