The Museum of Modern Art north of Copenhagen is of course a must for all art lovers, who visit Denmark. A new web-initiative by the museum deserves to be promoted. Here is the text from the museum:
“Louisiana Channel delivers culture to the Net extending beyond the museum’s own events expanding upon the museum’s exhibitions and activities, as well as looking beyond Louisiana’s own context, meeting the artists in their environment for their stories. Louisiana Channel finds its material in Louisiana’s unique network of visual artists, writers, architects, designers and musicians, and angles the material with a background in Louisiana’s tradition for communication.
The Louisiana team produces videos on art and culture on a regular basis and new videos are posted to the site every week. We welcome you to sign up for our newsletter (go to the website) to be notified of new videos regularly. At current you can meet David Hockney, Pipilotti Rist, Yayoi Kusama, Jonathan Safran Foer, Henning Mankell and many more…”
Including an acoustic version of “Banga” by Patti Smith.
