​The Coronavirus Crisis Strikes a Hard Blow

The outbreak of coronavirus, which has had a significant impact on large parts of the world, is also affecting the Swedish art world. Many galleries have already closed their doors, and on Wednesday evening Moderna Museet and Nationalmuseum announced that they will close at least until 14 April, becoming the last major museums in Northern Europe to shut their doors to the public. Several art institutions remain open, however, although educational programming, exhibition openings, and other larger events have been cancelled.
