Out & About: As darkness descends, so do the discerning doyens of culture

 

Culture during the night is more fun and attractive! That’s why Kulturnatten took over the city last Friday like they always do once a year, filling the streets with pedestrians strolling around to visit the different cultural spots.

Those with a pass could enjoy over 250 activities, which included museums like the Glyptoteket, where attendees could explore the darkness in an exhibition that focused on illuminating the beauty of the sculptures while you walked through the dark halls with live music in the background. It was a whole new magical way to see this venue.

There was also access to the underground Metro construction to envision how the future will be in 2019. And at the Cisternerne you could admire ‘H’, an Ingvar Cronhammar audio exhibition in which the floor came alight.

The little ones got to embrace the city’s culture as well. Huset Biograf had a Haunted House, scary makeup anticipating for Halloween and a treasure hunt. While at Carlsberg you could learn about the history of beer.

    Many of us Danes, despite being well-educated and well-travelled, often lack experience in navigating cultural differences at work.
