Ah-choo! Strange men in suits sneeze chops and rabbits. A brave toad fights its way through an obstacle course in a gym. Tears stream down cheeks while onion after onion is shredded on a grater. And a man tumbles down an endless stairway like an awkward clown. But is it an accident?

'To move something' means 'to make something move'. What does it look like when the body makes something move? When we move, we may lose control of our body, or we may find that the world is not adapted to our body. Our bodies are different and may move in different ways. We can also cause bodily reactions in others. We can be moved by something - laugh wildly or bubble over with happiness. But we can also have stomach pains and find that our body's boundaries are transgressed.

This video artwork can be viewed in ARKEN's foyer, where a lounge for kids and young people has been set up. Kick off your shoes, settle down and relax. Let a succession of fantastic video artists inspire you to explore how movements can affect you and your body, how you interact with others, how you express yourself, and how you sense your boundaries.

Artists in the video programme: Melanie Bonajo, Ingela Ihrman, Peter Land, Hanne Nielsen & Birgit Johnsen, Mika Rottenberg.
