Our bookstore is located behind the reception desk on the ground floor. Here you can take a break between the exhibitions and immerse yourself in our wide range of art books.
The bookstore presents its own imported books together with selected titles from Nordic Art Press (NAP). NAP is a network for the distribution of Nordic art books; selling books and publications from major publishing houses and publishers in the Nordic art scene.
Below we present some selected literary goodies that you can find in our store. You are most welcome to come by to see for yourself. The store is open during our exhibition opening hours.

Minigraphs is the name of our new book series where artists lead the word. The first release presents a conversation between artist Mari Slaattelid and art historian and curator at the National Museum Ingvild Krogvig.
The second release was published in connection with Fadlabi's large floor painting "The Onset of Vertigo", made in connection with Kunstnernes Hus' 90th anniversary. The publication presents a conversation between Fadlabi and curator, writer and lecturer Carl Martin Faurby.

Kunstnernes Hus - A history of graphic design
On the occasion of Kunstnernes Hus' 90th anniversary, artist Bjørn-Kowalski Hansen has taken a deep dive into our archive and collected over 400 posters and catalogues from the entire exhibition program, compiled in one book. The book shows how designers have interpreted exhibitions over time and created posters for among others Andy Warhol, the Autumn Exhibition, Cindy Sherman, Henri Matisse and van Gogh. It is available in three different colours and is a great gift for anyone interested in art and visual communication.
Editors: Gilda Axelroud, Lars Mørch Finborud, Ida Kierulf, Anne Hilde Neset.
