The Model: Palle Nielsen

The Model – A Model for a Qualitative Society! This playground by the Danish artist Palle Nielsen (b. 1942) is a children’s universe, a wonderland of free play and creative energy. It is also a symbolic space inviting grownups to reflect on values, norms and ways of being together. Palle Nielsen has reinterpreted his legendary exhibition The Model from 1968 at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet.
  

AI WEIWEI: CIRCLE OF ANIMALS/ZODIAC HEADS  

Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads is a pivotal work by the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (b. 1957). The group of sculptures was deposited at ARKEN by the Frahm Collection in June 2013, and represents the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Ai Weiwei’s art revolves around human rights and criticism of Chinese society.
