The museum was set up to try to answer some of the questions about life that had been raised, and to do so through art. “I think that many people expect a museum like ours to be solely based on religion and religious figures, but actually we’re focused on trying to look at the many different ways of defining ourselves,” explains museum director Christine Løventoft. “We collaborate with other museums in Denmark and Europe to create thought-provoking and exciting exhibitions. Our next exhibition is about otherness, and about how ‘the other’ in art has shaped our own identity,” she says.
