Culture Round-Up: Porn in Borgen?

One of the biggest ironies in Danish politics is that the country’s leading right-wing party, Venstre, is translated as ‘left’.

But perhaps there is a good reason, as nothing is ‘left’ to the imagination in a new exhibition that opens today in Parliament in the office of Kim Valentin, a Liberal MP elected last year.

According to the creator Mathilde Grafström, it may well be the first time in history that nude pictures are exhibited within Christiansborg’s walls.

Haarder when he was minister
Grafström is known for his nude photo exhibitions, which as part of ‘Female Beauty: The Project’ seek to empower the many women who let their self-image compromise their happiness.

A major exhibition in the middle of Strøget in 2016 was supported by another Liberal politician, the then Minister of Culture Bertel Haarder.

The exhibition at Christiansborg includes 10 “female beauty” photographs and five nature pictures, and the exhibition will be open until the spring of 2021.

A huge honor
“It is an enormous honor to be allowed to exhibit behind the distinguished walls at Christiansborg,” said Grafström.

“I hope it can create new awareness of the importance of loving the body and accepting the unknown and the naked form. I want to say thank you to Kim for his great support of my art project. ”
