The objects in Dansmuseet’s exhibits have travelled far and wide to be here. Most of them were never intended to end up in a museum. Some of them even started out as souvenirs. Why are they here?

Developed by second-year students in the International Master’s Programme in Performance Studies and Dr. Meike Wagner, I AM HERE is an intervention that investigates the reciprocal relationship between the individual person and the museum space, through engagement with the visitors, the objects and the space itself. We hope to encourage questions on the role often prescribed to museums: how museums, their visitors and external researchers might respond thoughtfully and creatively to issues of cultural representation, ownership and who we hold responsible for the dissemination of knowledge, and why.
