Koddu: The Icelandic Case

Koddu: The Icelandic Case

Last November, a trio of Icelandic artists were going to put on an exhibition about Iceland’s economic crash. Only before the doors opened at Listasafn Árnesinga in Hveragerði, the gallery director put her foot down and the exhibit never saw the light. However, Ásmundur Ásmundsson, Tinna Grétarsdóttir, and Hannes Lárusson are now going to open that mega racy exhibit at the Living Art Museum. It will address the surge of neoliberal values during Iceland’s boom years and the effect that it had on the contemporary art scene, as well as the resulting crisis, and the role it has played in the continued development of the art scene. It sounds fascinating indeed! And if you are as curious as we are about what could possibly have been worthy of censorship in a twenty first century democratic country, no less, the exhibit opens April 15 and runs until May 15. See you there.

Where: The Living Art Museum
When: April 16 to May 15
