What Lies Unspoken

Date: 5. may. 2017 - 30. dec. 2017
Price: Admission

A special display uses a sound collage of contemporary conversations and discussions to explore works from our collections that can be linked to Denmark’s past as a colonial ruler.

The centenary of the sale of the three islands to the USA in 1917 has prompted SMK to take a fresh look at some of the works in the museum’s collection.

Experience a soundscape where researchers, academics, curators and picture activists have present-day conversations about the works exhibited. And delve into stories that have hitherto lain unspoken in art works by C.W. Eckersberg, Astrid Holm, Nicolai Abildgaard and Jens Juel.
