Democracy again

Beautiful May has arrived and a new (old) exhibition will open, namely our first Democracy-installation, I et demokrati findes der ikke plads for idioter (In a democracy there is no place for idiots). This time the installation will be in Danish and take a look at Danish politics due to the upcoming elections in Denmark.

The exhibition will open on the 9th of May as a part of the festival Talk Town, which main purpose is to create a platform for democratic debate about equality, gender and feminism.

I et demokrati findes der ikke plads for idioter wants to bring awareness to how words are being used in politics, and how important it is to actively take a stance. With the installation questions such as; What are the choices of the voters based on? and What will happen if the words of the politicians is taken out of their context and put into a new? Inspired Ludwig Wittgenstein‘s thoughts regarding ‘language-game‘ and the definition of ‘an idiot’ as a person who does not participate in the democratic process, words will be ‘activated’ the interactive installation.

Digital Technology in Arts Education, DTAE, Bergen Norway

 

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to both be part of and attend the conference Digital Technology in Arts Education DTAE, at Western Norway University of Applied Science, in Bergen Norway. Thanks to a Mobility Funding from the Nordic Culture Point we were able to go there and thanks to an invite from the conference we held a Slot Car Music workshop with the conference participants. A thoroughly inspiring conference, new acquaintances and beautiful surroundings.
