2012: Panelist on Live Reviewing at Samtalekøkken
At Samtalekøkken in November 2010, critic Trine Ross from the Danish daily newspaper Politiken gave a live review of “Funus Imaginarium”. In this happening by “Das Beckwerk”, one of Nielsen’s former artistic incarnations, the human being, state citizen and artist Claus Beck-Nielsen was declared dead and buried. “Das Beckwerk“ 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.
