Therefore we suggest you arrive with plenty of time, and expect waiting time in busy periods. It is not possible to pre-book online. OPENINGS HOURS: Plan your visit | Rosenborg (kongernessamling.dk) Rosenborg Castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV, in the early 17th century. Christian IV fathered more than 20 children, was a patron of the arts and built some of the most significant buildings in Copenhagen. Of his many castles, Rosenborg became his favorite.  Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the impressive possessions of Christian IV and his descendants.  Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The king’s coronation throne is made of nar-whale tusk with gilt figures, while the queen’s is of silver. Tapestries on the walls commemorate battles between Denmark and Sweden.  The interiors are well-preserved and invite the visitor to take a journey in time. The visitor can experience the king’s private writing cabinet, his bathroom, and see wax figures of former royal inhabitants. Rosenborg houses one of the world’s finest Venetian glass collections, both set in tower chambers.  The crowns of the Danish kings and queens are kept in special vaults with access from Rosenborg’s basement. The crowns are embellished with table-cut stones, enamel and gold ornamentation. They were last used for coronations in 1840.  The crown jewels are living treasures, as they are the only ones in the world which are both displayed to the public and in royal use, by HM Queen Margrethe. They primarily consist of four garnitures: a diamond set, a ruby set, a pearl set, and an emerald set – the emeralds being among the world’s finest.  Travel back in history Visit The Winter Room; the best preserved room from the original Castle, which was the most important of the Christian IV's three private chambers.  The bays are from 1758. In front of the bay to the right stood Christian IV's mechanical arrangement for raising and lowering the drawbridge.  Christian IV lay in state here and the exhibits are mostly from his time.

    When the present Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen was constructed, the National Museum took care to excavate and protect the ruins of the Palace's oldest predecessors, Bishop Absalon's Castle of 1167 and Copenhagen Castle that replaced it. Christiansborg is outstanding in the respect that here you will find, under the same roof, Denmark's political centre of today and the remains of the country's principal castle of the Middle Ages. Revealed by accident When casting the foundations of the present Christiansborg Palace, workers struck upon the ruins of older buildings and the remnants of a curtain wall. Experts were called in from the National Museum, and a close inspection revealed that the ruins dated back as far as 1167. What they had come upon was Bishop Absalon's Castle, once situated on a tiny island off the Merchants' Habour. Walking around this underground site, you will get an idea of how the castle was continually renewed and developed. The later castle and the infamous Blue Tower The Copenhagen Castle, built on the same site, was surrounded by a moat and had a large tower as an entrance gate. The castle was rebuilt several times. King Christian IV added a spire to the tower, the infamous Blue Tower, where only prominent prisoners of state were kept. In the 1720s, King Frederik IV entirely rebuilt the castle, but as a result of this total reconstruction, the walls had become so heavy they started to give way and to crack. King Christian VI, Frederik IV's successor, soon realised the necessity of demolishing the old castle and erecting a new one on the site. This new castle was to be the first Christiansborg Palace.

    Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is located in the center of Copenhagen and the museum collection consists primarily of works of art and archaeological objects from Ancient Egypt, the worlds of Ancient Greece and Rome, Etruscan Culture, as well as Danish and French art of the 19th century. Art and beer Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek was founded by the brewer, Carl Jacobsen (the founder of Carlsberg breweries), who was one of the great industrial magnates of the 19th century and the greatest art patron Denmark has seen. In 1888 Carl Jacobsen gave his art collection to the public and began the building of Glyptoteket to house it. Glyptoteket has been open to the public since 1897 and holds over 10,000 works primarily divided between ancient antiquities and Danish and French sculpture and painting from the 19th century. The collection The collection of ancient sculpture includes an extensive collection of Ancient Greek and Roman portrait heads as well as a large collection of Palmyrene portraits. The modern part of the collection includes French sculpture from the 19th century – featuring a significant selection of works by Auguste Rodin – and French painting from 1800 to 1950, with Impressionism and Paul Gauguin as the absolute stars, plus a collection of Danish Golden Age Art. The greater proportion of the collection forms part of the museum’s permanent exhibitions, though there are, also, temporary special exhibitions which help to develop a perspective on the museum’s collection with the aid of works on loan. The Winter Garden, café and roof terraceUnwind from the daily grind at the café overlooking the beautiful and spacious Winter Garden. Picnic is open on the same days as the museum itself. We serve tasty light lunches, desserts, coffee and other beverages. Visit the roof terrace of the Glyptotek and experience a beautiful view of Copenhagen and the city towers.

Special Exhibithions:  After nature, 12.10.2023 - 18.08.2024 In After Nature – A New Reading of the Glyptotek’s Paintings by Writer Josefine Klougart, Josefine Klougart uses the prism of art to study the relationship of humans with nature in a kind of 3-D essay, in which the author’s texts interacts with the Glyptotek’s landscape paintings. Nature as we knew it no longer exists. Klougart explores its beauty, and its disappearance from our modern reality. The sensuous design of the exhibition is the work of the set designer duo Vang Stensgaard. (Glyptoteket.dk) Gilded Mummy Masks, 20/04/24-06/10/24 To ensure a successful afterlife in ancient Egypt, it was important to preserve the identity of the deceased by including a portrayal in the grave. Glyptoteket has a variety of such portrayals in the form of mummy masks, which were used to cover the face of the deceased. The museum has a collection of such gilded mummy masks from the Roman period in Egypt, from the 1st to the 3rd century CE. Previously, there was very little knowledge about these gilded mummy masks. Therefore, the masks have recently been thoroughly investigated by the museum’s Polychromy Research Group. The scientific analyses tell us what kind of materials and techniques the Egyptians used to make the masks, and how they were used. The largest of the masks, depicting a woman, were made by using textile, plaster, gilding, plant gum, animal glue, pigments (red and yellow ochre, carbon black, Egyptian blue, copper green, organic red), as well as plant fibres for the wig.

    Gl. Holtegaard is an art center with a programme of three to four ambitious exhibitions a year, both in the gallery of the main house and in the Baroque garden. The mission is to present contemporary and classical artworks that make history relevant and bring a fresh perspective to the age in which we live. The gallery’s unique location in the historical buildings and grounds of Lauritz de Thurah’s Baroque complex is an integrated part of the exhibition profile. It is precisely this context that makes it possible to bring contemporary art into close contact with the historical material Gammel Holtegaard is made of.The Baroque garden is thus seen as an extended gallery, and exhibitions there are as carefully curated and presented as the indoor ones in the annual programme. Gammel Holtegaard has a diverse year-round programme of events and activities relating to the exhibitions and to Gammel Holtegaard itself. These include artist talks, performances, talks, debates, garden tours, concerts, and much more. Exhibitions (glhotegaard.dk): YOU TOO WILL GET OLD, 1/6/24-1/9/24 Gammel Holtegaard’s summer exhibition You Too Will Get Old presents two solo shows by what at first glance would seem to be very different artists. Currently experiencing a major revival in the Danish art world, award-winning artist Kirsten Christensen (1943) presents an exclusive selection of works on loan from museums and private collectors, some of them never on view to the public before. At the other end of Gammel Holtegaard is Swedish artist Linnéa Sjöberg (1983) with a choice selection of key works from her oeuvre as her Danish debut. NINA BEIER, 1/6/24-1/12/24 The internationally recognised Danish artist Nina Beier develops a large-scale new work for the baroque garden at Gammel Holtegaard. Marble is often part of Beier’s artistic practice, reflecting her interest in the material itself but especially the development of natural stone from its raw geological state to cultural artefact. In Beier’s works the gap between the history of an object and the symbolic value it accrues is accentuated and twisted in new juxtapositions and encounters. For Island the artist has collected slabs of marble and other stone originally cut to make kitchens and bathrooms. These she has spread in a specific section of the garden where they form a geological map of the world, transforming the original and natural into a kind of architecture that can be seen as an extension of the controlled design principles of a baroque garden. Transport Gl. Holtegaard is located north of Copenhagen, and both entrance and public transport is included in COPENHAGEN CARD - DISCOVER. We recommend using journeyplanner.dk to plan your trip.

    ARKEN Museum of Contemporary Art in Ishøj south of Copenhagen presents exhibitions with Danish, Nordic and international art – from new, young talents to established names ARKEN is a great and monumental building situated in the artificial landscape Køge Bay Beach south of Copenhagen. The museum has one of Scandinavia's finest collections of contemporary art, and the museum's maritime architecture with the pointed stern, which majestically protudes into the terrain, has won recognition both at home and abroad since its inaugaration in 1996.  ARKEN's collection contains more than 400 works - Danish, Nordic and international contemporary art primarly from the period after 1990. The museum houses, among other things, one of Europe's most important collections of the British artist Damien Hirst. Experience the museum's evolving sculpture park, nine works by acclaimed German artist Anselm Reyle as well as a magnificent masterpiece by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.  Distinctive architecture The museum building is an attraction in itself. With its scenic location on Kunstens Ø, or ‘Art Island’, the building, designed by the architect Søren Robert Lund, resembles a beached ship. A lagoon meanders its way around the museum, with several bridges linking the museum island with the surrounding beach area. The museum café hangs like a lifeboat on the side of the building and through the large panoramic windows overlooks Køge Bay. The museum shop is the area's leading design shop with an inspiring mix of Nordic design, art books, and gift items.   Exhibitions Group Therapy, 29.2.24-28.7.24 An inflatable flock of chickens and a burned-down preschool. An outboard motor as a national symbol of Greenland. In the exhibition Group Therapy — New Contemporary Art at ARKEN, contemporary art unfolds in many forms. Sharp, insightful, caring, dynamic and humorous - the artists explore our era and invite us to reflect on our place in the world. The exhibition's works have recently been added to the museum's permanent collection, and they are presented in an exhibition that promotes conversations about conflict, emotions, hope and healing. In her installation, Lisa's Chickens (Farm Life), Benedikte Bjerre has given a large flock of helium hens the 50 most popular girl names in Denmark right now, raising playful questions about our market-driven and gendered world. Cliché-filled ideas about gender are also challenged by Tora Schultz, who, with her Prada stilettos, inspired by the poster for the Hollywood film The Devil Wears Prada, humorously criticises the sex symbols of the fashion industry and the demeaning propensity of our society to compare powerful women to the devil. Martin Brandt Hansen punches a hole in the stereotypical notion of national identity with works such as Uummat (heart in Greenlandic) in which he transforms a Honda engine — a global symbol of strength, speed and power — into an elegant and humorous monument to today's Greenland. Anish Kapoor, Unseen: 11.4.24-20.10.24 Anish KapoorKapoor's monumental sculptures and installations speak directly to our senses and emotions. Through his unique eye for materials, shapes, colours and surfaces we are drawn into and seduced by his work, which turns the world upside down — often quite literally. Kapoor has been shown in the largest exhibition venues in the world, and he has also created several significant pieces for public spaces. Anish Kapoor was born and raised in an Indian-Jewish family in India. From 1973, he was educated in England, where he has worked ever since.‍ ARKEN's exhibitionThe exhibition at ARKEN showcases a selection of Kapoor's most significant large-scale works created during the artist's more than 40-year career. The exhibition will be spread throughout most of ARKEN's halls: the Art Axis, the Large Gallery, the Graphic Gallery and other adjacent galleries. Despite the large exhibition space, the exhibition contains only about 10 works. The majority, however, are very extensive, and in scale and intensity the works will fill the entire museum. All of the works are built specifically for and integrated into ARKEN's architecture. In this way, the exhibition will take the form of a total intervention in architecture that challenges the usual way the building is used and the spaces are experienced.

For over 500 years, Kronborg Castle has stood in a strategically important location where the Øresund Strait is narrowest, allowing control over the entrance to the Baltic Sea. It’s here that King Christian IV ran around the castle’s stairs as a child and through its magnificent halls. And it’s here that Holger Danske sleeps in the casemates, ready to awaken when Denmark is in need. Today, Kronborg Castle is open to the public and is part of the National Museum of Denmark. You can explore the old Renaissance castle, where there are clear traces of its inhabitants, including old inscriptions of names on the walls.

Allegedly, these parties inspired the renowned playwright Shakespeare to set his famous drama “Hamlet” right here. In 2000, Kronborg Castle was also designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Experience Frederiksborg Castle and Museum of National History with magnificent halls, portraits, history paintings, and special exhibitions, located just 35 minutes north of Copenhagen. The impressive Renaissance castle was built by Christian IV to showcase the king's power. With its fairytale-like location in the middle of the Castle Lake, surrounded by the Baroque Garden and the romantic landscape garden, Frederiksborg Castle offers a unique destination with great cultural experiences, garden walks, and boat trips with the Little Ferry on the Castle Lake throughout the summer. Museum of National History Museum and National Portrait Gallery Christian IV's (1588-1648) magnificent castle from the early 17th century now serves as the framework for more than 500 years of stories and myths that shaped Denmark into what it is today. Frederiksborg Castle is both Museum of National History and the National Portrait Gallery, where hundreds of portraits give faces to individuals who have shaped Denmark's history. The portrait collection is the country's largest and most significant, and the collection of paintings, busts, drawings, and photographs is continuously supplemented with new works. History paintings also communicate important national events. Experience the pomp and splendor of bygone times up close. The museum's fine period interiors and the castle's impressive grand rooms, such as the Castle Church, the Great Hall, and the Audience Hall, provide insight into changing periods and styles. Additionally, changing special exhibitions on portrait art and the history of both Denmark and Frederiksborg Castle are shown each year. The museum has been housed at Frederiksborg Castle since 1878 when it was established by the founder of Carlsberg, brewer J.C. Jacobsen, after a devastating fire in 1859. The museum continues to operate as a department of the Carlsberg Foundation.

Also, keep an eye out for the museum's podcast PORTRÆT, which delves into both the castle and its collection. Dine at Rabarbergaarden Slottet The museum's restaurant, Rabarbergaarden Slottet (meaning the Rhubarb farm at the castle) brings the flavors of North Zealand to the table. Enjoy a gastronomic experience with local, organic ingredients from the sustainable farm-to-table kitchen. The restaurant is located in a former carriage port and stable building, offering views of both a lake and the castle at Northern Europe's largest Renaissance complex. The Castle Gardens Frederiksborg Castle was completed by creating gardens around the grand building complex. Christian IV had his own garden, but in 1720, architect J. Krieger was commissioned to create a Baroque garden. The Baroque Garden was recreated in the 1990s. The lowest terraces in the garden feature four monograms in tightly trimmed hedges: Frederik IV, Frederik V, Christian VI, and Margrethe II. These are the four monarchs under whom the garden has existed, from its establishment by Frederik IV to its restoration in Queen Margrethe's time. However, the Baroque Garden is not the only garden at the castle. Next to the Baroque Garden is the romantic, English-inspired garden, where a small Bath House Castle is also located. With its small lakes and groves, the romantic garden is designed to convey moods and showcase the beauty of nature. In contrast, the Baroque Garden with its straight lines and sharp edges represents the beauty that lies in human control over nature. Getting There The museum is open every day of the year. It takes approximately 35 minutes to drive from Copenhagen. If you are coming by train, the easiest way to reach Frederiksborg is via the S-train line A. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from Hillerød Station. You can walk along the Castle Lake or through the city's pedestrian streets with cafes and shops.

    The Viking Ships in Roskilde The Viking Ship Museum exhibits the five 1000-year-old original ship finds from the Viking Age (the Skuldelev Ships) as well as a fleet of sailing reconstructions. Several of these reconstructions and other Nordic boats are also available to sail in. You can also meet the craftsmen who keep up the traditions of the old maritime trades, and you can try your hand with axes, ropes and many other activities. The permanent exhibitions are focused on the five Skuldelev Ships. The goal of these exhibits is to tell the story of these ships and of the many Nordic maritime adventures during the Viking Age. The five original Viking ships stand majestically with the Roskilde Fjord as a living backdrop. With this view, it becomes easy to imagine how the merchant set off for distant shores with his goods, the warriors waved goodbye to their families before the voyage and the fisherman embarked on the fjord with the hope of returning with a good catch. Sailing trips on Roskilde Fjord - Climb on board! Board a Viking ship and get up close!The Museum is the only place in the world where you can experience seeing 1000-year-old Viking ships, and then go directly out to the Museum harbor, where the full-scale reconstructed Viking ships lie moored at the quayside. The Viking Ship Museum invites its guests to take part in unique sailing trips with either Viking ships or traditional Nordic boats, which are the descendants of the Vikings' ships. Viking ships were originally used for war, trading, fishing and transport during short every day trips or on longer voyages to foreign shores.

Current exhibitions (dac.dk): Aware – Architecture and Senses, 22.3.24-15.9.24 Architecture can thrill you or awe you, calm you down or foster connection. It can be caring and protective – or stimulate your curiosity, igniting idle senses and unfolding unseen worlds We bring ourselves into architecture, filling space with atmosphere – but architecture has an agency of its own. Space can suggest you to do things: jump or shout, move fast or slow, be active or rest, make you alert or relaxed, keep to the side, or take center stage. This reverberating relationship is not only the context in which 3XN GXN works but underscores the enduring effect that the built environment has on us and on our surroundings. The installations in Aware present some of the fundamental concepts of space: not bricks, concrete or steel, but relations between bodies and space, between spatial atmospheres and human emotions. Aware encourages you to explore and reflect on your experience of space, delving into the behavioural principles behind architecture and their transformative potential. At home, at work, at school, we are almost always present within architecture. Aware asks you to consider the questions buried beneath the surface: what emotional effect does architecture have on you and your everyday quality of life? So Danish! (Currently under construction) Explore the new permanent exhibition - So Danish! - that covers the history and development of Danish Architecture all the way from the Vikings up until modern days.

The exhibition showcases carefully selected Japanese woodblock prints from the museum's large collection of Japanese craftsmanship.   In Love & War provides a rare glimpse into a period in Japan’s history when the shogun ruled and the country was isolated from the outside world. Here, the audience can experience images of beautiful young men and women from the so-called Edo period (1600-1868), when the Tokugawa shogunate ruled from the capital Edo, today Tokyo – as well as images of samurai and modern graphic war images from the Meiji period (1868-1912), where feudal rule under the shogun was replaced by a constitutional monarchy under Emperor Meiji. The title of the exhibition refers to the proverb “In love and war, all is fair” and alludes to the visual impact of the famous Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, one of the foremost art forms of the Edo period. The distinctive expression in the ukiyo-e idealized the daily life of the prostitutes of that time and served as visual propaganda in the form of war images with nationalist and patriotic undertones.   The Future is Present, 19.6.22-31.12.24 Is society more diverse or more homogeneous in the future? How will we prioritize and design our communities? How do we create healthy and nourishing relationships? Will our behavior become more socially oriented, or will we be further apart and become isolated? Which human values will be more important? What will the future look like, and what will design look like in the future? Currently, designers around the world are working on solving some of our global challenges. Thinking radically and creatively, allowing themselves to be guided by both reason and emotion. They search extensively for inspiration, ask different questions, and envision themselves in the communities, whose lives they want to improve. Akut, series  Welcome to an exhibition about what is happening on the design scene right now. AKUT showcases everything from trends and tendencies to design, which address current issues and provide new perspectives on design and crafts.

    The Royal Stables are located at Christiansborg Palace on the island of Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen. In 1789 the number of horses reached a peak with 270 horses stabled. Today, there are about 20 horses in the Royal Stables. Shortly after his accession to the throne in 1730, King Christian VI had the old and outdated Copenhagen Castle torn down to make way for a new Baroque palace: the first Christiansborg Palace. The old stable complex behind Copenhagen Castle was also torn down to make way for a new and larger stable complex. The new and still existing stable complex was constructed from 1738 to 1745. The complex included an outdoor riding ground surrounded by buildings containing an indoor riding school as well as stables with room for a total of 87 riding horses and 165 carriage horses. Part of these stable buildings still remain unchanged since their inauguration in 1746 with an extravagant decoration of marble pillars. A lively museum The museum has three departments: The Harness Room with old uniforms of the Royal Stables and the splendidly decorated eight-horse harness with a wealth of lovely details - the actual Stables with the Royal Family's carriage and saddle horses, and finally the Coach Hall with old well-preserved state coaches and carriages.

    Art gallery, water reservoir and urban dripstone cave  The subterranean space beneath the green lawns of Søndermarken Park works as a breathtaking stage for contemporary art installations. The cold, humid and dark old water reservoir might remind you of long-forgotten cathedrals and gloomy catacombs – it is sparsely illuminated, and the atmosphere evokes fascination and enchantment in both children and adults.  Every year Cisternerne invite an internationally recognized artist or architect to create an exhibition particularly to this underground space – an exhibition in large scale that interacts with and emphasizes the unique architecture, climate, atmosphere and history of Cisternerne. March 17th to November 30th 2024: Start Again the Lament by Taryn Simon Cisternerne presents an extensive sound installation by artist Taryn Simon. Building everlasting recitations of loss, Start Again the Lament explores how we mourn individually and collectively, considering the anatomy of grief and who we choose to guide us through it. In the act of lament, discontent is publicly performed. Professional mourners are granted the authority and solicited by the bereaved to occupy, negotiate, and shape their loss.  In a relentless replay, the lamentations of professional mourners are broadcast into the reverberating space of Cisternerne. These sonic rituals of grief include northern Albanian laments, which seek to excavate ‘uncried words’; Wayuu laments, which safeguard the soul’s passage to the Milky Way; Greek Epirotic laments, which bind the story of a life with its afterlife; and Yazidi laments, which trace a topography of displacement and exile. Cisternerne becomes an instrument echoing recitations of loss with a reverberation of 17 seconds.

    Willumsen's Museum is a museum for the Danish artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen’s art and art collection as well as his archive and books. A short walk from Frederikssund Station you find Willumsens Museum where you you can see the works of Danish painter and Sculptor J. F. Willumsen. Today many of Willumsen’s major works stand as significant contributions to Nordic modernism, but equally many were previously dismissed and have only recently been reclaimed by art history. Throughout his life Willumsen was determined to go his own way, and some of his most radical and explosively colourful works were made towards its end. This late period has, until recently, been largely underestimated, fulfilling Willumsen’s prophecy that his art would only be understood by posterity.   Willumsen drew on tradition, but was also in dialogue with the popular culture of his own age. Quick strokes, caricatures, and loud colours were recurrent elements in many of his works as a painter. As a sculptor his works were monumental, the most famous being The Great Relief, now in the main gallery of the museum but originally intended for a bar in Chicago. Willumsen was active as an artist for over 70 years. He experienced two world wars, radical technological transformations, the break with identifiable motifs in avant-garde art, and the birth of modern, abstract painting.   Exhibitons (willumsensmuseum.dk): 'Like a Moth to the Flame', 10.2.24-28.7.24 There is a series of incredible coincidences in the works of Margin Bigum and J.F. Willumsen. Themes, color tones and motifs sneak in and out of each other across time and place. These coincidences - which have in the exhibition been placed side by side - in themselves make a juxtaposition between the two artists interesting. However, it is the artistic process, seen from the perspective of the creative artist, that is the core of the exhibition. At the exhibition, the audience can experience paintings, lithograåhs, sculptures, photographs, drawings and sketches by Willumsen and Bigum - from their very young years to their mature productions. Willumsen's World The first time Jens Ferdinand Willumsen (1863-1958) really caused a stir in Denmark was in 1891, the year he sent the etching Fertility from Paris to an exhibition in Copenhagen. Willumsen’s simple, symbolic portrayal of his pregnant wife and his proclamation of ‘new art’ outraged the Danish art audience, who nevertheless stood in line to see the scandalous work. Willumsen has divided opinion with his visually brash, often flamboyant, and at times extreme figurative art ever since. Willumsen collected paintings he attributed to Rafael, Leonardo Da Vinci, El Greco, Rembrandt and Cézanne. He clearly saw himself as the last in a long line of master artists who had gone beyond the limits of the possible during their own lifetime. The museum houses Willumsen’s Old Collection of genuine and counterfeit works, which is key to understanding his artistic world and vision.

    A must-see museum for all who is curious about the human body, disease, and health.  Medical Museion is not for delicate souls – diseases and their treatment have always been dramatic. But if you dare to face how the human body has been understood and treated over time - from antiquity to the age of the gene - this is the place for you.  Explore the beautiful exhibitions in the historic Royal Academy for Surgeons from 1787. Medical Museion has one of the biggest and richest historical collections of medical artefacts  in Europe. The collections contain 150,000 — 250,000 artefacts, depending on what counts as a individual artefact. We also have a large image collection, a document archive, and a historical book collection.   Exhibithions: Special Exhibition, Margarine: 22 March – 22 December 2024 The exhibition illustrates how the choices we make about our diet, our understanding of how blood vessels function, and the statistics of human health have been intertwined in Danish and international history. Below the pearly, dull surface of margarine lurks compelling stories of war, globalization, deceased whales, angry butter farmers, trans-fatty acids, processed foods, and lives saved The exhibition consists of two rooms. In one room you can experience a mixture of collected historical objects, film clips, sound and objects from Medical Museion’s own collections. In the exhibition’s second room, there is an interactive installation where the audience can shape the soft margarine with the movements of their own bodies. Mind the gut: Our brain and bowels are under examination in the exhibition Mind the Gut. Through a thought-provoking blend of science, art and history, the exhibition explores the complex connections between our mind and our guts. Brain, gut feelings, identity, bowels, bacteria, microbiomes – all interlinked. Mind the Gut shows, how doctors researchers, patients and artists have tried to understand and treat the complex relation between mind and gut throughout time. An enigma, which have occupied us through millennia and still does through scientific experiments, trendy lifestyle tendencies and fierce debates about health. The body collected: The human body has been collected for medical research and teaching during the last few centuries, and body parts have been prepared, preserved and conserved. The exhibition ‘The Body Collected’ presents for the first time a large selection of historical collections of human remains from the 18th century to now. The oldest specimens come from research collections of fetuses, skeletons, bones, organs, and histological samples. The latest arrival are biopsies, cells, and DNA, as preserved in biobank freezers. The collections have switched focus as our understanding of health and disease are improved, and as a consequence of technological advances.

Here we show you a small natural piece of Øresund. It is established with stone reef, sand beds and banks of seaweed and you can experience lots of exciting fish and crabs. The Øresund Aquarium often puts new fish and animals into the basin, so there is always something to look at and study.  Activities at the aquarium During school holidays the Øresund Aquarium organizes several activities for children and their families, for example, crab-catching at the Water Laboratory, special ”Touch living sea creatures”-events and dissections of various sea animals. We also offer boat trips on the Øresund where we are watching for the small whale – the porpoise – as well as the elusive tuna fish and wild seabirds.  Please note that the aquarium is closed on the 24th, 25th & 31st of December + 1st of January

    Vivid colours and grand architectural design characterise the museum, which houses the works of the world-famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. Thorvaldsens Museum opened on September 18th 1848 and was the first public museum in Denmark. The characteristic building was built to exhibit the extensive works of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. Today the museum looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. A tour of the museum reveals a very special opportunity to enjoy world-class art and architecture. The museum houses the work of the world-famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844). Located at Slotsholmen in the heart of Copenhagen the museum is very close to some of the most popular attractions of the city.  Their free audio guide offers visitors a glimpse into the history of the sculptures which represents Roman gods and famous historical personages. Flora Italica: 17.6.23-24.9.24 Thorvaldsen’s sculptures have in their own way contributed to the danish flora as we know it today. In our upcoming focus exhibition FLORA ITALICA we introduce our guests to the flora and biodiversity of Thorvaldsen’s time.  The exhibition is based on the poetic but true story, that an Italian flower field blossomed on the square in front of the museum in the 1840’s. This botanical phenomenon occurred because Thorvaldsen’s sculptures were wrapped in Italian hay on their transport from Rome to Copenhagen. During the unwrapping of the artworks, large quantities of hay were disposed off in front of the museum, and the seeds began to blossom creating an Italian meadow.    In the exhibition the museums court yard will be transformed into an Italian meadow, using recreations of the original seeds from Thorvaldsen’s time. The American artist Crystal Bennes revives the ancient meadow – thus creating a tangible and visual aspect to our days problems with biodiversity. Guests will also be able to experience new contemporary art works with a focus on the beauty of plant structure and biodiversity.   The botanist Johan Lange collected a large number of the Italian plants, and had them preserved for future generations. These specimens will be exhibited for the very first time, along with the new works by contemporary artists.  Come by and experience the original Italian meadow, dive into the beauty of plants and learn more about the challenges we face in our current biodiversity.

The art centre also regularly presents concerts, performances, guided tours, dinners, talks, etc.   Exhibitions:  Rune Bering: Bycatch,  10.2.24 - 28.7.24 Taking the fishing industry as his point of departure – as a story about both catching and being caught – Rune Bering weaves fishing nets in copper cables that originate from the infrastructures of technology. He works sculpturally with how technology is closely connected with geology and nature. There is a pervasive and underlying ouroboros approach to his exhibition that examines the cycle of destruction, death and rebirth.   Rune Bering elaborates on the upcoming exhibition: ”In this exhibition, I work sculpturally with emotions which I believe are characteristic of our time. We know that we live in a way that can’t last, but at the same time the feeling is that we can’t change it. We live in structures that interfere with each other and that are too complex to really understand, change and get out of. It feels like we are caught in our own net”.

    The Willemos-class Fast Attack Craft SEHESTED, along with its 9 sister ships, served as a prominent part of the naval defence of Denmark and NATO during the Cold War. The enemy was right in fearing this vessel which, with its small size and crew, was armed as potently as a major surface combatant. The class was armed with wirecontrolled torpedoes, long range Harpoon missiles, and a 76mm gun. These ships could serve as minelayers and were equipped with modern technology for combat information, artillery direction and sensors. In addition, ships were quite seaworthy and could reach a speed of 40 knots (74 km/h or 46 mp/h). The crew consisted of 25 young men and women who lived in cramped conditions. The individual crewmember was held to a high standard of professional excellence and teamwork.

    The submarine Sælen was commissioned into the Royal Danish Navy in 1990 as the last submarine in Danish service. It was also the only submarine to ever participate in hostilities. Sælen is a small dieselelectric submarine, particularly suited for operations in coastal waters where it could encroach without detection. It was armed with eight torpedo-tubes and could deploy navy seals. When you visit the submarine, you will experience how the conditions were for the crew of 24 sailors. During the Cold War, submarines of the Royal Danish Navy were feared by the enemy due to their low detectability. In 2002 Sælen participated in NATO counter terrorism operations in the Mediterranean. Shortly before its return to Denmark, the submarine was redirected to the Arabian Gulf where it, along with the Corvette Olfert Fischer, conducted crucial operations during the second war in Iraq. Sælen was decommissioned in 2004.

    The most significant building on Holmen is the Mast Crane from 1749. The crane was used for keel hauling of ships and insertion of masts. It is built entirely of wood, and the wall around it is only a shell that protects the woodwork from wind and weather. The crane was able to lift twenty tons – only using manpower. Holmen was the main base, dock yard and anchorage for the Royal Danish Navy from 1690 to 1993. Copenhagen maintained a military home base as far back as the late 13th century, but the Navy was not granted a shipyard until around 1500. This was located on Bremerholm in the inner city. In 1680 work commenced to relocate the Navy outside the city due to limited space and risk of fire. Holmen was subsequently established  by lowering decommissioned ships filled with waste from the streets and mud from the harbour, thus creating the artificial island of Nyholm. At the northern end of the island the warship Elephanten was lowered into the water at a 90° angle creating another small island to shelter the ships at anchor. This island functioned as a pier for centuries. The waters between the inner city and Nyholm housed the Navy ships. The Mast Crane offers a viewpoint with an impressive 360 degrees view over Holmen and Copenhagen.

During its existence SQ organized solo and group exhibitions, publications and happenings in parks, exhibition spaces, sports venues, cinemas and in book format. Special Effect, May 4 - september 8, 2024 With Special Effect, Atiéna R. Kilfa presents a new body of works consisting of a short film and two large scale pencil drawings. In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk. Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today. By evoking these archetypes, figuration becomes a tool to examine the ciphers which make up our systems and their potential collapse.

The museum offers a unique array of world-class art, design and architecture. The park has art to enjoy, too. Monet, Degas, Gauguin – and HammershøiAt Ordrupgaard, you can explore one of Northern Europe’s most important collections of French Impressionism, featuring leading figures like Monet, Degas and Gauguin. In addition, visitors can enjoy an exquisite collection of Danish art focusing on Vilhelm Hammershøi and his contemporaries – as well as a succession of special exhibitions. Finn Juhl, Zaha Hadid and SnøhettaYou can also visit the former home of furniture designer Finn Juhl. Here his iconic furniture enters into a lively dialogue with the great Danish artists of modernism, just like when Finn Juhl lived here. Star architect Zaha Hadid and the award-winning design studio Snøhetta have also made their imprint on Ordrupgaard. Art in the open airIn the park, you can explore works by leading contemporary artists. All visitors  can give their inner child free rein, because here you are welcome to run, jump and climb on the art. Of course, you may simply prefer to settle on the lawn and enjoy the many sensory impressions offered by the scenic park. Ever since the couple who founded Ordrupgaard, Wilhelm and Henny Hansen, moved here in 1918, a pleasant, informal atmosphere has infused this place. It still does, making the museum popular with all generations. In the café, the chefs conjure up dishes from fresh Nordic ingredients to provide pit-stop refreshments with breathtaking views to green parkland. Temporary exhibitions: AI WEIWEI – WATER LILIES #1, 31 May 2024 – 19 January 2025 Ai Weiwei, a highly celebrated voice in the world art, has set up his installation Water Lilies #1 (2022) at Ordrupgaard. This spectacular work comprises more than 650,000 Lego bricks and, with an impressive length of fifteen metres, it is Ai Weiwei’s biggest Lego work to date. The enormous installation reconfigures one of the most iconic impressionist paintings, namely Claude Monet’s equally monumental triptych Water Lilies (1914–26), now at MoMA in New York. Whereas Monet excludes any hint of his own sorrowful life in his depiction of the tranquil beauty of the water lily pond, Ai Weiwei inserts a black portal among the colourful water lilies, thus unlocking the narrative about his formative childhood years spent with his father in a Chinese work camp. The exhibition shows how Monet’s painting is woven into Ai Weiwei’s gripping life story to re-emerge as a confrontation with the systematic suppression of the freedom of speech, which the now exiled artist, and his father before him, have experienced on body and soul in their native China.

    Laugh and get wiser! At STORM you are given an entertaining insight into the importance of Danish humour and satire –historically and today.  We offer humorous and entertaining stories from our much loved cultural heritage. From artists of the past like Storm P., Liva Weel and Dirch Passer to present day artists like Roald Als, Casper Christensen and Lisbeth Dahl.  Humorous and satirical art gives not only an entertaining perspective on Denmark’s history from the Constitution Act of 1849 to today, but also a picture of humour and satire as a core element in the Danish national character. Whether they are unfolded on a stage, on paper, on a screen or among us in daily life, humour and satire occupy a central place in the danish self-understanding. Humour can be a quiet chuckle at seeing one’s own fallibility reflected and caricatured on a stage or in a cartoon, or it can dent the image of the powers that be. Humour can puncture pomposity and be a vent that makes the difficult easier to deal with. Humour and satire can get us to laugh together and question rigidly established norms and ideas.    Special Exhibitions (frederiksbergmuseerne.dk): The censored exhibition on censorship, 18.11.23-20.10.24 Satire is one of the most censored art forms. Throughout centuries, churches and states have criminalized and condemned satire, and even today, various actors attempt to stifle satire. This could be terrorists threatening satirists or social media platforms that exclude them. It is often said that censorship makes satire less daring and lively, as many are likely to hold back if they risk losing their job, freedom or even their life. However, The Censored Exhibition on Censorship shows that censorship has not only intimidated but also inspired satirists. It has led them to invent new symbols and new ways to circumvent and ridicule censorship. The exhibition showcases works that have come into existence solely because there have been – and still are – actors trying to silence satirists. It provides a rare insight into how satirists have viewed censorship as a creative challenge rather than a straitjacket since the beginning of the 19th century.

A walk in Russia The natural resort where you find Rudolph Tegner’s statues is called Russia. The rather special name relates to the remoteness of the place.

In the park, you find 14 Rudolph Tegner statues while walking around the heathery hills outside the museum. See the art in Rudolph Tegner’s Statue Park. Almost like a church The museum room was designed by Rudolph Tegner himself with the purpose of housing all his artworks. It was built in 1937-38, and when walking through the large port, you almost feel like being in a church room. The solid walls, the high ceiling and the absence of large windows make all sounds resonate between the statues. The permanent collection counts 355 of Rudolph Tegner’s artworks. Most of them are originals in plaster; others are in bronze and marble. Climbing trees and activities for children Children are welcome at the museum. In Statue Park, there are climbing trees. You can also go treasure hunting or orienteering during your visit – both require that you have information about the artworks. If you want to be creative, you can visit the drawing workshop to try to draw various artworks. Activities for children all over North Sealand.

One of Denmark’s great sculptors Rudolph Tegner was educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1893. His art was very controversial at that time. His work is intense, dramatic and huge and comes under the art form called vitalism. And they formed a great contrast to other Danish sculptors such as Bertel Thorvaldsen. For a great part of his artistic life, Rudolph Tegner lived in France and 1916; he bought the area outside Dronningmølle, where he constructed his museum. Here, he is buried together with his wife, Elna. Combine your trip to Tegner's museum with a nice day-trip to the beach town Hornbæk

ART AND THE DANES AT WAR 1848-1864 is an exhibition about art and the popular image of the people’s warrior which arose with the wars in the 1800s. For the first time ever, the Danish soldier was given a leading role in general culture. The home front closely followed the war through photographic reports. Danish soldiers, student volunteers and sailors became heroes in large battle paintings. But art also tackled problems and conflicts. Families had to send their sons to the wars and, later, to receive and accommodate the returning veterans. SOLDIERS.

Could death and grief be accommodated in art? What happened to the scars of those who came home from the wars?

    The exhibition at the Danish Jewish Museum in Copenhagen is a broad presentation of Jewish life in Denmark throughout 400 years, and is a selection from the museum's own collection. The world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind's characteristic architecture will - in an almost labyrinthine manner - lead you into the enthralling universe of the Danish Jewish culture. The exhibition interior was put together in close dialogue with Daniel Libeskind's architecture, which is reminiscent of the famous Jewish Museum in Berlin. Mitzvah - A good deed The focal point of Daniel Libeskind's architecture, as he has based his design of the museum on, is the unique circumstance of Danish-Jewish history that the majority of Danish Jews were saved from Nazi persecution by their Danish compatriots during the Second World War. The emblem and concept of the museum interior is the Hebrew word 'Mitzvah', which can be translated as an obligation or a good deed. The word 'Mitzvah' represents the generally positive Jewish experience in Denmark and the special experience of being saved. The Hebrew letters spelling Mitzvah is also the museum's logo. At the museum you get to experience different events, films and guided tours. Everything is texted in both Danish and English.

A visit to North Atlantic House is guaranteed to expand your horizon and stir your senses. You will find two exhibition rooms in which you can get a taste of North Atlantic culture through changing exhibitions, that shed light on the art scene of each of the three countries, in turn. Furthermore, on specific days and evenings, you can experience everything from concerts, movies, presentations and events. Explore North Atlantic art and culture in the beautiful warehouse from the 1700s. Built in 1767, North Atlantic House was the port for maritime traffic between Denmark and the North Atlantic for over 200 years. Special Exhibitions (nordatlantens.dk): WINGSPAN, 8.6.24-22.9.24 The Faroese painter Sigrun Gunnarsdóttir is a storyteller at heart. Her works are about home, about longing, about presence, about looking for the key to locked rooms, about faith as one’s foundation, about grief and care. Often, the perspective in her art is that of the child, and a sense of caring for those who have newly entered the world permeates Gunnarsdóttir’s work. Indeed, it was a pressing need to tell stories that prompted Gunnarsdóttir to abandon concrete observations of the world in favour of the naïve and Surrealist idiom she has been practicing since the 1990s. In her painterly world, big things become small and vice versa, and her works are filled with a regularly recurring array of symbols such as the sparrow, the key, the lily, the door and the angel. Sigrun Gunnarsdóttir was born in 1950 in Eiði on the Faroe Islands, where she still lives and works. She is a graduate from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, having studied there in 1973–1980 under professor Sven Dalsgaard. She has presented countless exhibitions in her native Faroe Islands and abroad. In 2023, her artistic endeavours were the subject of Marianna Mørkøre and Beinta á Torkilsheyggi’s award-winning portrait film Heartist, which is included in the exhibition.     Authentic surroundings These days, other ports serve the North Atlantic market, and the historic warehouse is now a thriving cultural centre, dedicated to the art and culture of Denmark’s former North Atlantic colonies Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. North Atlantic artists are often inspired by the landscapes, light, and nature sounds of their region, which lends a fiercely visual, bodily, and musical quality to their art. The rustic, maritime spirit of the old warehouse with its raw plank floors and exposed rafter ceilings offers a unique and beautiful contrast to the artworks on the display. Nordic food Visit the cultural centre to get your own first-hand impression of this intriguing harbour front area. The North Atlantic House is open all year round and offers a lovely café where you can enjoy a good glass of wine or a cup of coffee. On the Nordatlantens Brygge Harbour Front you will find the Faroese and Greenlandic Representations, the Icelandic Embassy, and the culinary treasures of Restaurant Barr.

    According to written sources from the middle ages, it was in the area surrounding Lejre Museum, that the birth of the Danish realm took place. It is here, you find the first line of Danish kings, Skjoldungerne, who, according to the legend, had their base during the Iron Age and the Viking Age in Denmark (500-1000 A.C.). Lejre Museum reopened with a brand new exhibition in March 2016. The exhibition combines digital installations and archaeological treasure findings, which gives unique historical experience. The legend tells, that just outside the doors of Lejre Museum, in the beautiful, scenic landscape, lay the great castle of Skjoldungerne, who descended from King Skjold. Skjoldungerne were mythical kings, but archaeological findings in the area suggest, that Gl. Lejre was one of the most important centers in the Viking ages. The exhibition is divided into three general themes. The first presents the original sources – the written myths and the archaeological evidence. Here you can experience the legendary myths through sound, light, and film, and it is here, that you get an introduction to the history of Lejre. The second main theme is shaped like a big digital wall map, where you actively can seek information about the monuments and the excavations in the area surrounding the museum. In the third theme, you find the museums archaeological treasures from the area – the world-renowned Odin-statue, the Gevninge-finding and Denmarks largest silver treasure, Mannerupskatten. Lejre Museum also has a cosy bookstore and shop, where you can immerse yourself in the ancient myths while you enjoy a delicious cup of organic coffee.

    Jægerspris Castle is one of Denmark's oldest royal castles. It is beautifully located, surrounded by forest and fjords. The royal history goes back to the 13th Century and the castle has served as a hunting and summer residence for kings and queens. In 1854 Frederik VII and Countess Danner moved into Jægerspris Castle. They decorated the castle as their private residence and the rooms still stand as they did in the 1850s. The living rooms at Jægerspris Castle are decorated according to the taste of the time by the fashion- and style-conscious Countess Danner. Incidentally, the castle is the only place in Denmark where the interior design of the 1850s can be experienced as a whole. During a visit to the museum, you can also experience King Frederik VII’s archaeological collection, which contains several unique gold finds from the Bronze Age. You can also see an exhibition about the orphanage that Countess Danner set up at the castle. The exhibition tells how the children lived in the orphanage wards around the castle in the 1920s, 30s and 40s, and here it is shown how this large private orphanage has had an impact on childcare in Denmark. At the castle is a small cozy café, Cafe Danner, with organic coffee and tea, delicious cakes baked with care and cozy lunch. There is also a small shop with lots of gift ideas. The café and shop offer sheltered employment for people who find it difficult to find and maintain regular work. This year's special exhibition: In Eternal Memory. Countess Danner’s Jægerspris The history of Countess Louise Danner’s life sounds like a fairy tale. She was born in Copenhagen in 1815, as the daughter of an unmarried maid. Yet, fate would have her marry the King of Denmark one day and become one of the country’s significant benefactors. Who would have seen that coming? 1850 was the turning point of her life. That year, she married Frederik VII and received her noble title, Countess. But their love was continuously put to serious tests as King Frederik VII could not shield Louise from envy and gossip. According to the elitist opinion of the time she was not worthy of a king. Louise was courageous and experienced more than most. She transcended social and geographical boundaries – and yet she never forgot her own story. Before her death, she bequeathed her fortune to charity in two foundations which she established in the name of the king. One foundation was established to support the poorest women of the working class in Copenhagen, while the other was to aid vulnerable children by running an orphanage at Jægerspris Castle, and, aside from this, preserve the castle in memory of Frederik VII. 150 years have passed since Countess Danner’s death, and King Frederik VII’s Foundation at Jægerspris Castle still runs Danner’s orphanage and preserves the memory of Frederik VII and Countess Danner.

    Take a trip to Køge Museum and enjoy an experience you'll never forget. Køge Museum is located centrally in the town of Køge - just a few minutes' walk from Køge Station and Køge Torv - in the old merchant's house from 1619. In the museum's exhibitions, you can look forward to a journey through Køge's history. From the mighty Viking Age to the hunter-gatherer people of the Stone Age. It will be macabre, bloody, and morbid in the museum's new exhibition 'The Grave of the Seeress.' Also experience the museum's two permanent exhibitions 'Seeresses, Gold and Gods' and 'Gifts from the Past. Although Køge Museum is housed in a listed building dating to the 1600s, the museum’s Viking archaeologist bids you welcome in a Viking Age home. Here you’ll see rare things like five pillars from a house that only survived because they were reused in a bridge over nearby Tryggevælde River. Objects from excavations of a chieftain’s estate at the Toftegård settlement, located about 10 km south of Køge at Stevns, are exhibited in a posthole arrangement – the excavation of postholes is one of our main sources of knowledge about life in ancient times. You’ll see mysterious gold figurines, which either had some religious and symbolic meaning now unclear to us, or were just a gift for visitors. An arrowhead, perhaps deliberately left in a posthole when the house was built as an amulet to protect the house and its occupants against harm. Dirt and rubbish swept up over hundreds of years contain small pieces of glass, beads, pottery and chewed bones from a hearty meal – much the same as we might find today when cleaning up. Overall, the finds give a fascinating insight into how people lived in the Viking Age. The Museum reopened in the summer of 2015 with a completely new exibition format. When you're done, you can take a break in the museum's cozy courtyard - shielded from the noise of the city. Here, you can enjoy a cup of well-brewed coffee from the museum cafe while the kids play on the ship-themed playground.

It is said that Mr. Lorentzen who was hiring out of the farm at that time was a nice man towards the children and were allowed to pick wild raspberries in the woods behind the farm.

    Denmark’s museum for public art As Denmark’s only museum for public art, KØS collects sketches, scale models, and a variety of other preliminary works for the art that is placed or takes place in public spaces in Denmark. These are artworks that many feel ownership of because they are close to us in everyday life, and therefore are often the subject of wonder, discussion, disapproval, and interest among local users. The finished works are typically placed permanently somewhere out there, unless they take place as temporary projects that over a period occur in more or less direct interaction with the audience. The works themselves therefore do not form part of the museum’s collection, which instead through drawings, watercolors, and models in plaster, clay, paper, and wood or in the form of project descriptions, notes and sketches, films and photos etc., shows the quality of and the range in the country’s publicly placed works. The collection’s often impressive sketch sequences, which typically can accommodate many phases in the artistic creation process - from early, loose drafts to gradually more detailed studies and composition sketches to final, thoroughly worked templates and working drawings - can be studied when the museum shows collection exhibitions. The Queen’s tapestries The main works in the museum’s collection are visual artist Bjørn Nørgaard’s extensive sketch material for Queen Margrethe II’s tapestries, which she received as a gift from Danish Business in 2000. The sketch material for the 10-year-long work process consists of 11 colorful cartoons in full size with a wealth of historical motifs. Changing collection exhibitions The KØS Collection is regularly shown in collection exhibitions at the museum and typically consists of a mix of new acquisitions and known works from the collection. Read about our current exhibitions here. The collection consists of more than 18,000 unique sketches, models and preliminary works for art in public spaces and an archive that documents processes and conflicts around art in public spaces. Selections from the collection are regularly exhibited at the museum and activated in KØS’ teaching, just as artists are periodically invited to engage in dialogue with the KØS collection and KØS as an institution. Explore indoors over three floors or outside on the artistic forecourt by visual artist Ann Lislegaard. Combine the visit with a trip to the KØS Café and the museum shop with exclusive design items. Free guided tour the first Sunday of every month."   Current exhibitions: 'IN THE ARCHITECHT’S HOUSE - ELINA BROTHERUS ON ALVAR AALTO'; 01.03.24-04.08.24 In her three new photographic series, visual artist Elina Brotherus takes us deep into the heart of Alvar Aalto’s architecture. The new photographic series by Elina Brotherus, one of Finland’s most internationally acclaimed artists, are captured in three key Aalto buildings in Finland: Aalto’s home in Helsinki, his summer cottage also known as the ‘Experimental House,’ and the modernist masterpiece Paimio Sanatorium. The three new series are now being exhibited for the first time in Denmark through a collaboration between KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces and the Alvar Aalto Museum, where they premiered in 2023. In 2019, the Aalto Foundation granted the artist exclusive access to photograph in Alvar and Aino Aalto’s home in Helsinki and Alvar’s and his second wife Elissa’s private summer villa, the Experimental House in Muuratsalo. The summer villa is a pilgrimage destination for designers and architects due to the couple’s numerous material experiments conducted in the central, beautiful courtyard. It is brought to life in Elina Brotherus’ masterfully composed photographs and takes on a new vitality and presence. '(self)infatuation', 06.02.24-09.06.24 When a Country Falls in Love with Itself is the title of Elmgreen & Dragset’s artistic dialogue with the Danish sculptor Edvard Eriksen’s world-famous sculpture, The Little Mermaid. Erected on Langelinie in 1913 as a gift to Copenhagen from brewer Carl Jacobsen, The Little Mermaid is undoubtedly the most viewed and photographed sculpture in Denmark today. The romantic sculpture is both a tourist magnet and a national symbol. In 2008, the Danish-Norwegian artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset casually placed a mirror in front of the mermaid, in which she – the symbol of the nation – self-reflects. The resulting photographic artwork, When a Country Falls in Love with Itself seemed to indicate that she, the nation, is no longer so interested in gazing out to distant shores but prefers to admire herself. Like The Little Mermaid herself, When a Country Falls in Love with Itself is now a central piece in art history, illustrating how public art functions as focal points for interactions between different viewpoints. It is an example of how contemporary art can elegantly contribute to adding new layers and narratives on top of the already existing. In 2012, Elmgreen & Dragset once again mirrored the small sculpture with symbolic significance when they created Han for Kulturværftet in Helsingør — a male version of The Little Mermaid who gazes longingly, not at himself, but out into the world. Unlike his sister on Langelinie, who is crafted in bronze, both Han and the stone he sits on are made of polished stainless steel, reflecting the surroundings and those who look at him. And if you are lucky enough to visit the sculpture at the right time, you may experience the young man on the stone opening his eyes and blinking. With Han, Elmgreen & Dragset invites us to look at both him – Han – and ourselves with a loving, but also investigative, curious gaze. Perhaps an invitation to fall in love with something other than ourselves?

    Munkeruphus is a former country house in a landscape ground, close to the Øresund coast, between Dronningmølle and Gilleleje. A rare example of American Art and Crafts influence in Danish architecture, the building now serves as an exhibition space, a café and a small gift- and bookshop run by the Munkeruphus Trust. In 1958 it was acquired by artist and designer Gunnar Aagaard Andersen and his wife. Aagaard had previously lived in France from 1946 to 1951 where he had co-founded Groupe Espace, a collaborative between artists and architects who worked with spatial art, and he made it the centre of an active artistic environment with many visiting colleagues visiting from abroad. In 1986 the house was purchased by the Capital Region Authority and subsequently listed by the Danish Heritage Agency. For a few years it was left empty but in the autumn of 1988 it was ceded to a foundation with the aim of transforming it into an exhibition space for changing exhibitions. It was renovated with support from private benefactors and opened the doors to its first exhibition in 1989. The garden at Munkeruphus is 5 acres with winding paths, great old trees, open lawns and beautiful views through a gully and down slopes to the beach. The view from the beach reveals the hills of Kullen in Sweden, the lighthouse at Nakkehoved, and Hornbæk. Munkeruphus itself is an architectural gem. Built in colonial style with wooden cladding and a high shingled roof. The proportions and colours are combined with consideration for both detail and the building as a whole. There is also a small shop, a charming café with views of the sea, and a large garden with sculptures and outside dining. Events, guided tours, and workshops are held during the summer months.  Come and discover a unique gallery with a fascinating history and a stunning location!Find Munkeruphus on Instagram and Facebook.
