POLEMIK #5

On Thursday the 6th of November, FKD (The Danish Association of Art Centers), in cooperation with Overgaden - The institute for Contemporary Art, held a debate evening that focused on the numerous Art Center mergers taking place these last few years. Recently the mergers of Nikolaj Kunsthal, Thorvalsen, Stadsarkivet (The State Archives) and The Museum of Copenhagen have given cause for concern. Therefore FKD choose to invite the Cultural and Leisure Mayor of Copenhagen, Carl Christian Ebbesen, Brandt’s director Mads Dambo, Viborg Kunsthal’s director of exhibitions, Helene Nyborg Bay and Christian Rix-Nielsen, economic researcher at CBS, to a panel discussion where those interested could discuss the implications, advantages and disadvantages of art institution mergers.
