After years of advance speculation, it was playwright and author John Foss who was finally awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Literature.
On the doorstep of the legendary artist Groten’s residence where John Fosse lives when he’s in Oslo, P1 Kultur’s Emma Engström meets three Fosse experts who have encountered drama and writing in different ways – actor Gertrude Genge, director Kai Johnsen and NRK’s cultural commentator Inger Merit Hopplestad.
P1 Kultur is also hosted by author and member of the Swedish Academy Anne Swärd and Svenska Dagbladet’s Culture Director Lisa Irenius, who addresses, among other things, the question why Norway is such a strong literary nation at the moment.
article: ““I thought John Fosse was going to teach me to die.”
In “Septology,” John Fosse follows his main character, Asle, to the extreme. Maria Edström follows her and believes that she will live as long as the story continues.
Conversation about “This world is not mine”
Director Peter Ringbaum comes to the P1 Kultur studio to talk about his new documentary “This World Is Not Mine,” about self-taught folk artist Nellie Mae Rowe (1900-1982). It received a lot of attention when it was shown at film festivals in the United States, partly because it uses techniques still considered daring in documentary filmmaking, but also because it tells the story of an artist who was very special when she was alive. .
