GOLDEN DAYS FESTIVAL
September 11, 2018
Here at SIRIN we are always looking out for interesting and inspiring local events, and one which has just started is The Golden Days Festival.
With lots of local tasting events from local breweries, art and a range of debates ranging from the political to questions about the music heritage of Copenhagen. We have hand picked some of the forthcoming events happening nearby us in Frederiksberg that are close to our hearts as well as the history of the local area we area based in.
September 12th, 17.00 – 18.00pm
This is a story of all of the designs that where cut and omitted from the great narrative of Denmark’s famous design history.

September 13th, 19-21.30.
Pride and Bakkehuset presents a conversation between queer theorists Dag Heede and Torsten Bogh Thomsen with a focus on H.C. Andersen’s masculinity. Questions such as How is masculinity constructed in Denmark in the 1830’s? In what way can the intimate manhood of time help imagine the image of H.C. Andersen? are sure to start interesting and informative conversations.
September 22nd, 10.00am – 15.00.
Write your own weird Frederiksberg story focussing on the wilderness and beauty of the local area. You ca learn specific writing tools to help express all the humor, contrast and sensibility you and your surrounding city have.

KUSAMA – ARE WOMEN THE B-SIDE OF ART HISTORY?
September 23rd, 16.30pm
The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is today world famous for her dotted artworks, which was recently exhibited in Lousiana. Golden Days Festival has been in collaboration with Reprisen in Holte. This film asks the question – have female artists been overlooked,or been treated like a B-side in art history in contrast to the male dominated industry.
The Carlsberg area is a highlight of Denmark’s industrial architecture. The villa, which J.C. Jacobsen built with his family in 1854 is a hidden gem of the city.
The villa was where J.C. hosted some of his extravagant parties and dinners.
It is now owned by the Carlsberg Foundation.
Pie ceilings, murals and especially the pillar-crowned conservatory, “Pompeii” oozes ancient style and mood. In famous park-like garden you can come to see his story through the drawings and designs of artists who helped develop the park, as well as an array of exotic plants and huge poppy trees that express an exoticism that Jacobsen was keen to bring to Copenhagen.
