In "Alps Adriatic meets Nordic Streets" we combine historical elements, such as Kronborg Castle, with contemporary museums, such as Louisiana, discussions about art and culture in public spaces - in urban and rural areas - and a visit to the PASSAGE Festival.
The city of Helsingør/Elsinore, just 50 km north of Copenhagen, is internationally regarded as a role model with its large sums of investment in culture per inhabitant. In 2010, the city got a completely new harbor area - the spectacular Maritime Museum, which praises the New York Times as a stroke of genius. The old shipyard is a culture house today with a library that won international major mediation and architectural prizes. The history of the shipyard is also portrayed in many controversial sculptures and murals in public space, which we will visit in a special tour.But Helsingør is also historically a cosmopolitan city. It is the only city that takes its name in English - Elsinore - and the town center has remained almost unchanged for centuries. The city is separated from Sweden only by a small sound, the Oresund, and thus earned more than 500 years ago - and used up again - when the passing ships had to pay duty.

One of the most famous castles in Denmark, Kronborg Castle, is located in Helsingør. Kronborg is known as the original location of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Every year, even when we are there, the Danes celebrate Shakespeare's Castle with international guest appearances - often with the Royal Family as interested spectators.

We visit the PASSAGE Festival, Scandinavia's largest street theater festival, with many cross-disciplinary art events in the program. The main guest this year is the Italian director Romeo Castellucci, who presents his new play "LA NUOVA VITA". We get free admission to all events and performances of the PASSAGE Festival!

There is also the opportunity to network internationally and to exchange views on the role of art and culture in urban development. This can be especially interesting for councilors / decision makers in municipalities and cities.

The artistic director of the festival as well as cultural actors tell us what the investment in culture means for the city of Helsingør, and also talk about the quite critical debate that they have had. Everyone is welcome to contribute in this discussion on public culture. The discussion will be conducted in English.

The Tegners Museum is a small museum in the middle of a nature area just north of Helsingør and shows the works of the artist Rudolph Tegner. A trip to this picturesque area is worthwhile, although many of his naturalistic sculptures can be seen in Helsingør.

Louisiana on Saturday, 3.8. It is located in the south of Helsingør and is Denmark's most famous contemporary art museum. The permanent collection has works by Kandinsky, Malevich, Warhol, Rauschenberg and others, as well as young positions by selected contemporary artists.
