Bergen’s art museum KODE has a long and proud history. As early as 1825 a handful of citizens decided that the city needed its own museum of visual arts – and since then it has grown into an organisation of four art museums housing 43,000 works of arts, crafts and design. KODE understand the power of art and its role in sparking debate in society. They want their exhibitions to enlighten and inform the public with the aim of having an impact on societal change.
