Slow exhibition opens
6 to 9 p.m.
Slow TV (Sakte-TV in Norwegian) is a term used for a genre of live "marathon" television coverage of an ordinary event in its complete length. Its name is derived both from the long endurance of the broadcast and the natural slow pace of the program's progress. It was popularized in the last decade by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), beginning with the broadcast of a 7-hour train journey in 2009. Slow TV has become widely popular in Norway – so much so that the BBC and Netflix have adopted the programming. Free.
