YNKB on Kronborg, Elsinore

YNKB participates in collaboration with the Music House Elværket from Elsinore and video artist Elisabetta Saiu with the videoinstallation:HOW DO WE RE-AWAKEN HOLGER DANSKE?Will he listen to us, when no one else will listen?
This video installation gives new Danes and immigrants living in Elsinore the opportunity to confront Holger Danske with their hopes and dreams, disappointments and problems – so he come to their aid.
With his century-long history, Holger Danske is an international symbol and he lives in many cultures with different languages, traditions and religions.
He has the same mission everywhere - he is the people’s sleeping hero.
When problems become too great, the people can try to wake Holger Danske to new deeds of heroism, this time as the defender of the new Danes.

Sound and photo installation:Complain Grand Prix
Pictures and hearing the sounds from a Complain Grand Prix held in the Music House “Elværket” March 28, 2008 in Elsinore to give the new-Danes the possibility to express themselves and their point of views on Danes and Danish culture in a musical mode.

Let's remake the world III

Seminar and Workshop

This is the third event in a series initiated by the Library of Radiant Optimism (Brett Bloom + Bonnie Fortune) and YNKB, which started in late 2006 with The Radiantly Optimistic Poster Show!exhibited at YNKB, December 2006, and at Messhall, Chicago, June 2007. This exhibition was followed by a seminar in Messhall: What We Know of Our Past - What We Demand of Our Future, January 18-20, 2008.

We are inspired by the groundswell of optimistic and visionary activities in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We are interested in this time period and the massive counter-cultural movement it produced in the face of international political and social turmoil. We find ourselves in a similar global environment of unprecedented crises, and we are wondering how we can make visible and cohesive the currently existing activities. Is there potential to add to the optimistic histories of past activism with our own movements? This project seeks to not only create a discussion about the place of optimism in the face of war, environmental devastation, and global capitalism, but to examine how optimism can help fuel positive change in a realistic way.

Art after Work III: “How much did you pay

for this plot of land?"

5 pm: Folkekøkken
7 pm: Introduction to the exhibition: “How much did you pay for this plot of land? Land Value in Ramallah and East Jerusalem.. By Oliver Clemens and Sabine Horlitz from An Arkhitektur, Berlin.
A one dunam (1000 square meters) plot of land in the center of Ramallah costs up to $8 million; the same plot costs $300,000 in an upper-class residential area; near the settlement of Psagot, by contrast, a one-dunam plot costs only $30,000, while a dunam of land inside Zone C is available for $3,000. Through such an analysis of land value, political conditions, conflicts, social expectations and hopes all come to the fore.
