The Roth Corner
The Bistros´ interior is designed by Björn Roth and he has dedicated this corner to his father; Swiss artist Dieter Roth (1930-1998). Roth lived and worked in Seydisfjord for periods of time during the last decade of his life and had was a great influence on the local cultural life. The Skaftfell group, who founded the center, consists of a group of people that enjoyed the company of Roth and the center is an offspring of that inspiring dialogue. The shelves and table are made in the same way as Roth had in his studio. Paper and pens are always available and all drawings, sketches and scribbles which the guests leave behind are collected and bound together to make an annual book which cites the magazine Review For Everything published by Roth 1975-1987 and had no editor and published everything. Older volumes of the magazine and the annual books are on display in the Skaftfell Library.
