What’s wrong with being a Dane?, 2011, video, color, with sound. 11.24 min.
The video work ”What’s wrong with being a Dane?” is a situation that by chance occurs between me and a foreigner, in which I, considering my native country of Denmark, discuss the advantages of being a Danish citizen. During the conversation I uphold opinions and thoughts in regard to Denmark and the policy on foreigners that is prevalent in Danish society today. Using rhetoric observed in the media and on the political scene I use myself as an arena, testing the consequences and boundaries of a democracy and being able to speak ones own mind – to be entitled to say almost anything in the name of freedom of speech and by doing so sometimes leaving morality and decency behind.
