Description:Denmark 2005. To mark the bicentennial of Hans Christian Andersen, some of the most prominent figures in the contemporary art world, the American artist Joseph Kosuth and the Russian-American artist couple Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, were invited to provide a fresh perspective on the Danish fairytale writer as seen through a contemporary art lens.

You will see such things as a life-like model of a mountain village with a castle on the peak, a fictitious museum among gaintsÕ legs , and classical style paintings.
