Shaped by Time is a contemporary art exhibition where twenty-eight artists and authors have been invited to research and respond to the National Museum of Denmark’s prehistoric collection, presenting history from the end of the Ice Age to the Viking Age. In dialogue with the curators and museum historians, each artist has made a new site-sensitive work in the permanent prehistoric exhibition.
The exhibition takes as its starting point the specific museological context of the Danish National Museum and its 2008 re-staging of the prehistoric collection, intended to make the experience of history more digestible and exciting to audiences.
