More About Me

I'm passionate about

Classical and ancient music, art history, contemporary art, the art scene, canonization of art, open access to cultural heritage

An idea worth spreading

In Denmark, we have a Museum Law https://www.retsinformation.dk/Forms/R0710.aspx?id=12017

It encompasses 5 pillars of obligation:
- collection,
- registration
- conservation,
- research
- communication

I think we need a 6th pillar: ACCESS

Talk to me about

Art history, art conservation, classical music, literature, technological development, open data, humanistic research

People don't know that I'm good at

Drawing portaits of composers
