Queering the Museum

/ 15. August 2019
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us during Copenhagen Pride, when we transform the Glyptotek into a laboratory for liberating our conceptions of sexuality, gender and the body, and generating new readings of the art of Antiquity.

Through dance, dialogue and a staged trial we invite guests and statues to take part in imagining alternative futures in the company of the performance collective Disturbing Business, philosopher Denis Maksimov, Professor in visual culture and performance design Michael Haldrup and dancer Linh Le.
