Rebellion is a fusion of powerlessness and power. Rebellion is resistance to norms and authority. Rebellion assumes many forms and throughout history has contributed to change in societal structures. Rebellion happens in words, in music, in pictures and in actions – and it is happening at the Glyptotek on 6 February.
Join us for a rebellious evening, when we will shed light on historical events such as the legendary slave rebellion led by Spartacus. Listen to Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11, the composition of which was impacted by the Russian Revolution of 1905. Watch Antigone by the Euro-British contemporary artist, Tacita Dean. This film work shares its name with Sophocles’s tragic heroine, whose rebellious utterances against power ultimately resulted in her death. Write your own personal manifesto and add it to the manifesto wall – a consolidated, diverse expression of where rebellion is happening today.
As part of the Copenhagen Light Festival, the façade of the Glyptotek will be ablaze with flames in a light installation created by the internationally-renowned lighting designer, Jesper Kongshaug and a group of students from NEXT (an educational institution in Copenhagen).
Musicians, artists and speakers will be announced soon.
