Projects

Trollofon was an arts project curated/developed by Møllerhaug and Eide. Originally the Trollofon was made to save the Trolleybuses of Bergen. It turned out to be very successful – the municipality raised 50 millions for new buses. And the Trollofon was an annual event for 6 years. Artists like Fennesz, Oval, Francisco Lopez, Biosphere, etc made all their Trollofons. Click on the photo of the Sputnik & Trolleydriver Gunnar (the lead artist was an old vintage Sputnik-bus made locally by the Munch-factory) – and have a listen.
