Rebecca Gustafsson - Visit Greenland
In 2005 the art museum of Nuuk opened in the old Adventist Church of Nuuk. The museum holds the private art collection and handicrafts of the late contractor Svend Junge.
The atmosphere of the small yellow wooden building with a tower is an intensified history of Greenland. In this museum you will find amazing painting from local artirts like Emanuel A. Petersen , figurines of soapstone and tupilak's carved in tooth.
The show rooms are well filled with tools, some of higher artistic quality than others, but that does not matter.
All of this is displayed without much explanation in the art museum of Nuuk. There is not any hard text about this and that. That is why the museum is a place to explore and think. And perhaps even learn about history in a new and alternative way.
