MUNCH has invited Wencke Mühleisen, Nora Mehsen and Hanna Stoltenberg to write stories inspired by Edvard Munch's painting Woman by the Veranda Steps, which is included in our exhibition Yonder - Edvard Munch and Nature. It was painted in 1942, when Munch was 78 years old, and has rarely been shown to the public.

Curator Trine Otte Bak Nielsen introduces the exhibition, before the writers read their stories.
