Kulturbro 2000 is a Danish and Swedish biennial of art and culture and one of the most impressive cultural events in Scandinavia ever. It takes place from September 15th - December 15th and will in the future occur every second year. In the long term, Kulturbro will be comparable to the most imposing events of high culture in Europe.
The programme reveals more than 50 dream projects arranged by over one hundred well-established museums, theatres, concert halls, art galleries, and dance stages located across the Ã˜resund Region. Half of the projects belong to the visual and pictorial art and the other half to dance, music, theatre, and design. The projects encompass not merely Danish and Swedish artists but artists from across the world, thus ensuring a biennial of a high international standing.
Kulturbro 2000 does provide something of interest for everybody, though not necessarily for everybody all the time. The biennial presents both contemporary as well as groundbreaking experimental art, and it also offers classical modernistic exhibitions, music theatre, and trendy design installations.
The programme offers names such as: Francis Bacon, Asger Jorn, Andy Warhol, Yves Klein, Carolee Schneemann, Mona Hatoum, and James Turell, Alexander Rodchenko, Kasimir Malevitj, Jasper Johns, Ad Reinhardt, Robert Rauschenberg, and Egon Schiele, Fredrik Hill, EugÃ©ne Delacroix, Gustav Klimt, Edward Munch, Paul Gauguin, Puvis de Chavannes, and Gustave Moreau, Laurie Anderson, Peter Greenaway, Robert Wilson, and Tom Waits.
Kulturbro 2000 is a sensational project, as two countries collaborate across a border seeking to explore and strengthen a shared cultural identity in unity with the cultural institutions of the region. The concept of the biennial is closely related to the political ambitions of Denmark and Sweden to create a cross-national region with a shared cultural identity. Kulturbro 2000 aims to integrate Danes and Swedes and to function as a flagship to the high artistic standards of the region. The biennial is also a celebration of the opening of the fixed link between the two countries as well as a celebration of the birth of a new region - The Ã˜resund Region.
The Danish and Swedish Ministries of Cultural Affairs, the local authorities of Copenhagen and MalmÃ¶, the district authorities of SkÃ¥ne, and representatives of trade and industry from Sweden and Denmark are financing the Kulturbro 200 Foundation.
The Foundation enjoys the patronage of H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and H.R.H. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark.
