On May 8 the exhibition “Closer - Intimacies in art” closes down at the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK). These beautiful artworks from 1730 to 1930 show how moods, emotions and intimacy between people is expressed in art. At the same time the exhibition looks at how portrayals of intimacy have changed over time. And how artists in the eighteenth century gradually began to depict the private, intimate realm instead of historic and mythological scenes.
Until May 8

It could’ve been too late but luckily the exhibition Blixen on Stage at the Karen Blixen Museum has been prolonged until May 29. So if you’re into Blixen, her literature, her sense of fashion or fashion at the beginning of the 20th century in general, this is the place to go. Karen Blixen was quite theatrical in her way to dress up and seeing her original dresses tells a part of the story of who she was.
Until May 29
The Worker’s Museum explores how young people’s voices and views can be heard in Danish politics. Young people in Denmark are European champions in democracy, but a lot of them feel that their opinions are not worth listening to. The exhibition YOUNG VOICES UNHEARD is developed in close collaboration with young people from the entire country. The exhibition brings a current societal challenge up for debate and asks what kind of democracy young people wish to create. You have until June 5 test your sense of hearing and to try out their rhetorical skills on a lectern in a soundproof space, as well as to co-create the exhibition by making your own badges, posters and banners.
