Joachim Koester. Planeter og stier, 2021. Krogerup Højskole

Spatial qualities played and play an active role in the creation and experience of Astrid Marie Christiansen’s and Joachim Koester’s decorative projects at Krogerup Folk High School. While Christiansen conjures up a playful sweets garden in dialogue with the school’s modernist interior architecture, Koester’s photographs, solar system and paths on the linoleum floor of the lecture hall draw a cosmic mind map.

Maja Lisa Engelhardt. Årstid

After being shuttered for several years, Løgumkloster Højskole (Løgumkloster Folk High School) is once again ready to welcome students and staff. The lecture hall in the newly reopened school now features four large woven tapestries created by Maja Lisa Engelhardt with funding from the New Carlsberg Foundation. By the time the tapestries were completed, however, the school had to declare bankruptcy, and so the work of art has only recently been hung in its intended setting.
