The Researcher in Residence program (RiR) offers an opportunity for art researchers to live and work in the picturesque town of Åsgårdstrand. The town is known for housing the only remaining intact home after Edvard Munch, and scenes from many of his iconic paintings come alive in the narrow, quaint streets.

RiR was established in 2022 with the mission of bringing art related research from both national and international scholars to strengthen the academic research at Haugar Art Museum and Munch’s House.

The program is joint effort between Haugar Art Museum and Munch’s House in partnership with Horten Municipality and Vestfold County Municipality.

RIR provides comfortable accommodations in a in a small, detached house in the town centre, located within walking distance to the shoreline and previous home of Edvard Munch, Munch’s House.
