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.
