danish.global.culture.talks.

Culture and arts in the age of Covid-19. Live-streamed panel talks presented by Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg and NordicLA

danish.global.culture.talks is a new platform for debating art and culture. It has emerged out of an urgent need to debate the meaning and relevance of culture and art today in an ever-changing global context. This has become even more relevant as a result of the current global crisis caused by Covid-19. Culture and the arts have been ‘forgotten’, as if they were icing on the cake instead of the glue that keeps society together. 


Once the corona crisis has settled down, danish.global.culture.talks will be both an online and offline talks format at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg. The intention is to debate and discuss the importance of art and culture and how they remain relevant and meaningful both locally and globally. Therefore, in the first online sessions, Kunsten has teamed up with our good friends at NordicLA to broaden the global and cultural perspective in panel sessions with leading artists, business people and thinkers from Denmark and the rest of the world. The key questions in the first online sessions look at how the arts and culture will, or can transform the way we perceive the world in times of crisis, and help us overcome, understand and move on from the Corona crisis. 


Every session will start with a piece of art or music performance. All artists performing or participating in talks will receive a fee. All sessions are co-curated by Lasse Andersson and Kristian Riis. The artist programme is co-curated by Kunsten, NordicLA and co-hosts.

Talk sessions

All session are in English and will be streamed live at kunsten.dk/en/talks.
