    Special exhibition extended until March 17, 2024 due to public success

    Sedna. Myth and change in the Arctic

    picture of our current exhibition

    The museum opened its doors in the Seefeld 20 years ago. In the opening exhibition, the sea goddess Sedna also made her first appearance at NONAM. Now she is back – as the main character of the anniversary ­exhibition about art, culture and climate change in the Arctic. In cooperation with the Cerny Museum as ­l­ender, ­N­ONAM celebrates 20 years in the Seefeld and 60 ­years of museum history.

    Sedna is one of the most significant figures in the ­pantheon of the Inuit and other polar cultures. As the mother of the sea creatures, she decides whether ­people go hungry or get full. Her myths and ­legends­ are as diverse as the people who tell them. In art, she ­sometimes appears as a hunting ruler, at other times caught in a fishing net. She stands for mythical times as well as for the great challenges of the present.
