Institution: National Museum of Norway

The National Museum of Norway made its third deposit in a row deposit, with important photographic collections from three female photographers: Harriet Backer, Britta Marakatt-Labba, and Eline Mugaas. Harriet Backer (1845-1932) is one of the foremost Norwegian painters of the 19th Century, with 2020 marking 175 years since her birth. She is also one of very few artists who will be presented with a separate room in the new National Museum in Oslo, due to open in 2021. Britta Marakatt-Labba (1951) is a Samí artist, especially known for her embroidered textiles depicting the cultural and political history of the Samí people. Eline Mugaas (1969) has been one of the key photographic artists in Norway working with since the 1990s. In addition, the Museum also deposited its entire art database of 400,000 assets held by the museum. This latest deposit also signifies an enduring collaboration between the Museum and AWA for the mission of long-term digital preservation.
