The concept of freedom
The children’s exhibition FREEDOM! focuses on the many forms and modes of expression that freedom can involve. Taking our point of departure in a range of distinctive works of art and the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard we invite children and adults to discuss the concept of freedom.
Is freedom for everyone?
The children’s exhibition FREEDOM! celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard was not necessarily a sworn champion for freedom in the political sense. For example, he did not advocate democracy and was grateful that someone else was willing to rule.
That is interesting in our present era where we often speak of freedom as something positive. Instead of unquestioningly celebrating freedom the exhibition challenges our notions about the concept: Is freedom for everyone? Is freedom free? Are we free to choose?
