A public event entitled Wearing History will take place in the Banquette Hall (Festsalen) and the surrounding galleries, expressing in different ways how history can be put on and taken off. During the evening the world-famous English historian, Mary Beard will talk to the TV-host and architect Ane Cortzen about how history imposes stories on us that oppress us as human beings. The ensemble Scenatet will play sensory music without instruments and the Finnish installation and performance artists Maarit Mustonen and Anne Naukkarinen will demonstrate how Danish sounds in their ears. Another poet; Cia Rinne will point at how language controls our perception of history and last but not least the tribute artist Henrik Busborg and double bass player Torben Balle will bring the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll back to life in a nostalgic journey into the history of Elvis.
