The Aula paintings

The University´s Aula is one of the buildings at the University of Oslo´s downtown campus. The Aula is an extension built at the university´s 100th anniversary in 1911. The competition to decorate for the new hall was both turbulent and long lasting, but Munch eventually got the commission.The work was finished on location in 1916.

Few jobs were of greater importance to Munch more than the Aula decorations. At the time, the large paintings were controversial in their experimental, expressionistic style. Today they stand as monumental expressions of what Munch himself described as "the big, eternal forces".

The Aula is only open for the public during events. Luckily, it is a popular place for concerts.
