Vilborg Harðardóttir

This photography exhibit showcases the work of the indefatigable Vilborg Harðardóttir (1935-2002). Known for her work as a photographer for the newspaper Þjóðviljinn, her role in Iceland’s Rauðsokkur (“Red Stockings”) feminist movement, and her time as an MP, Vilborg played a key role in examining the social and political roles of women in the 60s and beyond. Her photos capture mundane and marvelous moments alike, ultimately presenting these moments as both intimate and troubling. Come and see the world through Vilborg’s eyes—as well as the ways she wanted to change it.

The exhibition runs until December 31, and the National Museum is open from 10:00-17:00 daily, admission is 1,500 ISK. For the museum’s opening hours around the holidays, see this page.
