Nielsen

At Samtalekøkkenet, November 2010, critic Trine Ross (Politiken), gave a live review of “Funus Imaginarium”, where the artist, Claus Beck-Nielsen was declared dead and buried in a happening by “Das Beckwerk“, an institution, that ceased to exist a few months later; after 100 days of mourning.

Exactly one year later, on the 17th of January 2012, the artist was resurrected and christened “Nielsen” in the former church, Nikolaj Kunsthal.

He was present as an artist-reviewer at Samtalekøkkenet, December 2012, investigating live criticism as an art-form.
