Birgitte Espeland is new director

November 1, 2019

At the same moment as The Twist was up and running, Birgitte took over the baton from the outgoing director Egil Eide. She even thinks she has got the world's most fun job!

Espeland comes from the job as head of the Ski Museum and holds a master's degree in history, art history, classical archeology and museum knowledge from the University of Oslo. She has worked for over 20 years at Bogstad Farm, the last few years as manager. She takes over the director position of Egil Eide, who has had more than ten years in the driver's seat at Kistefos.

I am very happy, proud and humbled to get this job. Kistefos is a great place with both cultural and industrial history, modern art and nature. And with The Twist, the future becomes even more exciting and full of opportunities. I look forward to it!
