Collected Memory Politiken's Forhal
The exhibition Collected Memory at Politiken's Forhal and at Politiken's light newspaper at (City Town Hall Square) Rådhuspladsen, Nørreport, Vesterport and Hans Knudsens Plads, was publicly accessable from 20 Aug.-24 Oct. 2020.
Based on the artist's own personal narrative of loeliness, failure, and powerlessness, 'Collected Memory' at Politiken relates to relationships in more than one sense, in which the individual, the common, and the universal united.
'Collected Memory' at Politiken is partly a physical, interactive exhibition in the Media House Politikens Forhal, which is based on a large-scale installation in brass with folded, colored newsprint. Here, visitors can contribute to the work by sharing their experiences of being alone, loneliness and the longing to be part of a community on the papers and archive their individual experiences in the collective work. In addition, Politiken's light newspaper at the main squares of the City; City Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen, Vesterport, Nørreport, and Hans Knudsens Plads) are all part of the work during the exhibition period. A Politiken employee selects statements from the work every week so that the voice of the individuals get heard in the public space. The participators' memories and reflections are also included in Politiken's printed newspaper. All statements are stored in the archive and digitized via collectedmemory.worldas a permanent and growing platform for a shared community of individual experiences, globally.
