THE MUSEUM OF_THOUGHT

ONE EXHIBITION; THREE SCENARIOS SHOWN AT
NIKOLAJ COPENHAGEN CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER
AND ESBJERG ART MUSEUM 2003

The exhibition unfolds as a journey through three scenarios, which all begins with a certain phenomenon: a blotting paper or a brain in a glass jar. The scenarios play on the ability of the human mind to form associations, to compare and connect various sensory perceptions and by a sense of wonder. The exhibition is also about placing oneself at the point where sense and nonsense meet.

SCENARIO 1
THE STRUCTURE OF PEACE

SCENARIO 2
THE LOST AND THE FORGOTTEN

SCENARIO 3
LENIN’S BRAIN IN DENMARK
