You can learn more about the exhibition and the world of ASMR in The Guardian ("This way for brain tingles: ASMR gets a shiver-inducing exhibition"), Surface Magazine ("The Thrilling and Complicated World of ASMR"), and on TV4 (in Swedish).
Due to the novel coronavirus, ArkDes is currently temporarily closed to visitors. WEIRD SENSATION FEELS GOOD – the first exhibition of its kind to explore ASMR – is scheduled to close on November 1, 2020.
