From Press Release:
The Louisiana Museum has become famous for its architecture exhibitions for several reasons. In the first place because they always take a contemporary view of the material – they are about our world now! And secondly because they reject professional narrow-mindedness and cross artistic statements with architectural realities. Thirdly, they make the ultimate use of the location and space of the museum. You are never far from an architecture exhibition at the Louisiana, you are always in the middle if it. The exhibition in 2012 is about a concept or phenomenon that is arousing renewed global interest – the idea of the distinctively Nordic. Nordic stock is high at present, from politics and welfare to cuisine and design, and the year’s exhibition offers a take on what the Nordic actually is – and what such ideas mean for our societal and cultural development.
