Slow. An Evening of Rebellion

/ 06. February 2020
4:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Rebellion is a combination of powerlessness and power. Rebellion is resistance to norms and authority. Rebellion assumes many forms and has at all times contributed to changes in societal structures. Rebellion happens in words, in music, in pictures and in actions – and it is happening at the Glyptotek on Thursday 6 February. Meet Christian Lollike, Jeanett Albeck, Knud Foldschack, GP&PLS, Lone Aburas, Spartacus, Antigone and many more.

An In-Depth Look at a Work. Rebellious Spartacus

One such revolt took place from 73 to 71 BC, led by Spartacus, a Thracian slave. But could the slave rebellion change conditions for the slaves?
