Elmgreen & Dragset

A subversive humor stands in these socially engaged installation by the scandinavian contemporary artists Ingar Dragset and Michael Elmgreen. They met in Copenhagen where they formed the duo Elmgreen & Dragset and since that day their work “raises issues around how designs and spaces influence and reflect social conventions and behavioural patterns.”

DRAKKAR(t)

Maria Vittoria Ceschi

I'm an italian girl, studying Economics in Milan. And I'm getting the chance to spend three months in Copenhagen for an Internship program in a small company run by artists. That's why I decided to take advantage from this experience to explore Denmark and scribble something of my "discoveries" in my blog. Sharing my knowledge with the others will add value to my path but also to other's paths. This is the goal that I'm trying to reach, so just jump aboard on my DRAKKAR(t).
