Out of KAOS

Special Exhibiton at Moesgaard Museum 12th November 2022 – 6th August 2023

Review

“if I were a theater director, I would be very happy if I had Moesgaard Museum’s technical staff at my disposal when scenography had to be produced…. In recent years, Moesgaard Museum has put perspectives on China’s first emperor, the Colosseum, Pompeii and the life of the Neanderthals. There have thus been sharp and quite precise impacts in world history, which have always been communicated with a huge profit……The staging is delicate and sumptuous, and perhaps this relationship helps – despite the skeletons, skulls and weapons – to create a well-arranged clash between aesthetics and historical bloodlust and lust for power” Lars Svanholm, Jyllandsposten 13.12.2022

Review

“One listens to the many sounds that meet one on the way to the special exhibition “Out of chaos”. Between Rome’s eagles and Odin’s ravens – at Moesgaard Museum near Aarhus.
Birds that scream. Some of them no doubt ravens. Two of them fly across the cover of the exhibition catalogue. It is Odin’s confidants, Hugin and Munin.
More sounds, more birds. Voices. A kind of song. And a mounted warrior laughingly displaying his prey, a severed head.
You are drawn, teased, disturbed by the image and sound that you have to pass through to get further into the exhibition itself.”
