Review by Jan Verwoert FRIEZE Issue nr. 74, April 2003

 

" If the basic message of the show could be understood as a plea for liberal open-mindedness in the face of the right-wing backlash in Denmark, this was probably best summed up by Hilde Rognskog’s (unrealized) project Drop (2002). The artist proposed to have leaftlets with the caption ‘Ambivalens er en Dyd!’ (Ambivalence is a virtue) dropped by plane over Copenhagen. "
