Press Release, October 2019
“These times call for a new way of leadership. It’s no longer enough just to focus on tunrover and earnings. The past has shown us that how we live and do business in the world today does not lead to sustainability, fainess and healthy growth. We need to change our way of thinking. We need to develop new values and objectives… and we need the people to show the way… Show your discontent and make some noise!” (Tin Foil Agenda, 2019).
Marie Kirkegaard is pleased to present Tin Foil. A cultural and intellectual forum and a t-shirt brand with a political agenda initiated and curated by Danish artist Jesper Dalgaard. The Tin Foil agenda strives to think in new ways of organizing, creating a vital and progressive hybrid between capitalism, art, design, politics and activism. It’s a people’s movement lead by artists, poets and musicians making their comments to the world today in statements and visual expressions printed on the Tin Foil t-shirts.
The Tin Foil exhibition gathers all the voices together by showing the Tin Foil t-shirts made so far in relation to original works by the artists behind the statements. By doing this we strive to build a new platform for a free and open conversation, that will create a foundation for new thoughts and ideas.
