75-året for oktober '43
Fra slut september og ind i oktober 2018, afholder menneskeretsforeningen, Humanity In Action, i anledning af 75-året for oktober '43, hvor jøder og andre forfulgte blev hjulpet over Øresund, en auktion og gruppeudstilling i Politikens Hus’ forhal.
Seks tusinde jødiske danskere flygtede til Sverige. Fem hundrede blev tilbageholdt og sendt til Theresienstadt.
Humanity in Action vil med pengene fra auktionen oprette et årligt ”Oktober 43-rejselegat” for unge, som arbejder med menneskerettigheder og mindretalsbeskyttelse.
Værket som Mie Mogensen har doneret til auktionen hedder ”Nat”.
Mie Mogensen om værket:
”Billedet er en del af en serie, jeg har malet, der handler om afsked.
Jeg har beskæftiget mig med afskeden som en overgang til noget nyt eller en noget nødvendigt. Jeg prøver at vise en dobbelthed i billedet, hvor det aldrig er klart, hvem der skal afsted, og hvor de er på vej hen.”
De medvirkende kunstneres værker kan ses her.
Sted: Politkens Hus’ Fohal
Dato: 21. september 2018, klokken 16-18
Dato for auktion: 23. oktober 2018, klokken 16-18
Home is where the House is
29th June – 1st of July 2018
Secrets, longings, dilemmas and ghosts are exposed and explored when Danish artist Mie Mogensen and American artist Carissa Potter let you peek inside a private home, which has been transformedinto a fictional domestic space.
Odd kitchenware, unbridled plants, dark and amorphous ceramic objects, and a huge book case ofwritings are some of the works which have inhabited the homely space. The two artists twist and turn life paradoxes and human conditions with their confessions and exposed fragility. They alsocelebrate creative women and examine the empowerment of sharing and articulating suchvulnerable and compromising issues.
The installation elements are all related to the interior functions. They are somehow in dialogue or disruptive interaction with the connotations of a domestic space.
In a greenhouse in the backyard there will be a sound piece which comprises, taboos, andconversation topics the two artists have engaged with throughout the recent years.
