Fotografihuset is being established as Norway's new, international center for photography.
Fotografihuset will show exhibitions with Norwegian and international photographers and become a place where a wide audience can experience the visual and social power of photography, both as an artistic expression and as everyday language.
We hope to be able to establish ourselves in new premises at Sukkerbiten outside the Opera in Oslo in a few years. This will be decided by the Oslo City Council in 2021 or 2022, when they decide whether Sukkerbiten will be used for a combination of cultural buildings and a free area, as the current plan dictates, or whether the entire plot will be a free area.

While we wait for the politicians’ report, in 2021 and 2022 we will arrange a pilot program at Sukkerbiten. Read more about the program under exhibitions and events.

Fotografiuset was established on 28 November 2022 as a foundation: Stiftelsen Fotografihuset.
The organization number for the new foundation is 930 542 881.
The aim of the foundation is to promote the general understanding and commitment to photography as a medium for socially relevant questions and issues, freedom of expression, cultural dissemination, cultural preservation and artistic expression. The foundation shall promote knowledge, commitment and understanding of photography as a socially useful and enlightening form of communication. The foundation is a general foundation that does not have commercial activity as its purpose.
The foundation’s purpose is to be fulfilled by establishing, running and further developing Norway’s new international center for photography in Oslo, the Fotografihuset.
Fotografihuset will show exhibitions with Norwegian and international photographers and become a place where a wide audience can experience the visual and social power of photography, both as artistic expression and as everyday language.
The Fotografihuset should be an arena that can elevate other visual and/or artistic forms of expression in combination with photography. Fotografihuset will be a unifying, national arena for the promotion of all types of photographic genres.
