The art at Mannaminne

Art is a recurring theme at Mannaminne. Anders Åberg's fascinating ability to weave the museum with the art, the old that meets the new, makes Mannaminne a completely unique place on earth.

What characterizes Anders Åberg's art can be found in many things and details, where even a simple molding has been taken care of by Anders' hands.

"Mannaminne is unique from a museological perspective. Anders Åberg loved cultural clashes - encounters between different times and different ways of thinking - and shaped them in ways that constantly arouse interest. Nowhere is there a better opportunity to start talking about how the local meets the global and how old meets new than during a walk in Mannaminne. "
