Double Opening: Steinar Haga Kristensen // Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys

Free entry

Kunsthal Aarhus invites you to the opening of Steinar Haga Kristensen's The Work of Art and The Spiritualization of Self-empowerment and Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys' KONKURS EKSPERTEN.

Steinar Haga Kristensen presents extraordinary reliefs, sculptures and ornaments. In many ways, the installation mimics the kind of art and monuments familiar from totalitarian states and dictatorships.

Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys, who have been selected to represent Belgium for next year's Venice Biennale, have produced a series of more than 40 sculptural heads made of plaster, fake hair and paint: everybody from politicians, dictators, B-film-actors, murderers, victims, friends, public people and other recognizable historical figures, living and dead.

Café Kunsthal will serve sumptuous landgangsbrød and drinks at the opening.
