Direct Action Theater, in cooperation with Høg Standard and Projektorpøblene,
performed two actions in Oslo:

At the MUNCH museum riot cops protocted the MUNCH museum sponsors Aker BP, Idemitsu and MUNCH Awards sponsor Equinor. 

MUNCH HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS. 
MUNCH IS TURNING IN HIS GRAVE. 


was projected on the museum.

At Stortinget a video of Jonas Gahr Støre was projected on the Parliament where Støre proclaimed:

«I have looked my two grandchildren in the eyes,
and said that I will do everything I can».
And a text stating:

FORGIVE THEM NOT
THEY KNOW WHAT THEY DO


Riot cops were posing and brushing their teeth.

The guards at the Parliament opposed projections on the building, fearing that the symbol of the Parliament might get hurt. D.A.T. still managed to enact the performance.
