In 2013 the SMK celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the world-famous Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard by staging a new exhibition for children. Especially aimed at young visitors, the exhibition Freedom! uses distinctive and important works of art to feed the imagination and invite the children to explore the concept of freedom – just like Kierkegaard himself did.

The exhibition shows graphic works by the British artist Tacita Dean (b. 1965). In her work she focuses on memory and on a fascination with things that once were. Tacita Dean was one of the main figures of the wave of Young British Artists who set the agenda for the international art scene in the 1990s. Today Dean lives and works in Berlin. The exhibition shows a number of series of photogravure prints. Photogravure is a special intaglio printmaking method that imbues photographs with a great degree of tactility.
