--- Tunge læser Philomela ---

Inspireret af Ovids fortælling om Philomela, en ung prinsesse af Athen, der, af sin svoger får skåret sin tunge af som straf for at ville fortælle sandheden om voldtægten, fortæller Louise Vind Nielsen i performanceværket "Tunge Læser Philomela" Philomelas historie gennem sin egen tunge.

---A Little Bird told me ---

A short essayistic video piece from Istanbul in the period after the coup-attempt 15th of July 2016. Several small birds claims to know the truth. Inspired by the Kurdish traditional of Dengbej storytelling the voices of the birds are sung. The piece is conceived through a collaboration between Louise Vind Nielsen and Kurdish dancer and musician Arjen Brûsk.

--- Ottoman Style Tinfoil Hat ---

Art is said to be a safe place for starting difficult conversations, but is that still the fact? The photo series "Ottoman Style Tin Foil Hat" is a comment on the mechanisms of (self-)censorship of creatives and intellectuals, by a feminist artist fashinated by Neo-Ottoman science fiction and the dream of an islam-conservative Disneyland.

--- Circular Lecture ---
The room of the exhibition space is devided into three parts that are connected. I placed an instrument in each room; a standtom, a hi-hat and a bass with ampliflier. I walked slowly at a steady pace from one room to another forming a circular movement, stroking the instruments as I passed them. The movement formed the composition and the footsteps created the rhythm.

--- I am positive you are negative ---

An essay film that captures the limbo in the asylum camps, a floating state in between what the asylum seekers call “positive” (residency permit) and
“negative” (rejection of asylum case). In the film voices of people that seek or have been seeking asylum in Denmark reflect on the feeling of floating and flying, and poses ideas of a freedom of movement. The film was conceived as a collaboration between Louise Vind Nielsen an Trampoline House in Copenhagen, commissioned by Danish Art Council as a part of tvKUNST on the national TV-channel DR-K. Text by Mathias Kryger on the Film "I am positive you are negative" (In Danish)

--- The Art of Being Many ---

In autumn 2014 hundreds of artists, activists, researchers and participants from all over Europe and beyond will gather at Kampnagel for an assembly of assemblies. Sharing experiences from real-democracy-movements and artistic experimentation, we want to explore new ways of coming together: collective insights into the materiality, the timing, the agenda, the desires and the catastrophes of being many. In an arena specifically built for the occasion, the assembly will become a laboratory of itself: a collective of friends and strangers, with many voices and bodies - including ghosts and things.












An experimental radio project transmitting live local FM radio for four days in May 2013 from the exhibition space Kunsthal Aarhus in Denmark.

The Temporary Radio formed a platform, from which 18-20 radio activists and artists based in Germany and Denmark experimented with a broad variety of radio programs and formats.


The idea behind the The Temporary Radio was to bring fresh air to utopian ideas by asking the questions: What do we want and what can we do? - an attempt to explore the subversive potential of radio art.

The project was an artistic construction site a place for collective experimentation and research. An attempt to transgress the visible and invisible walls between the fragile, the political, between art and life.
