STORM – museum for humour and satire
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.
