Danish Brain Mania

In 2021 during a residency in Nykobing, Denmark 'Stitch Your Brain' was taken up by the local artist's group Kunstnerfløjen. The group has studios in a former psychiatric institution, Annebergparken. There, until the 1960's  the brains of deceased patients were removed without consent of their families and sent in a wooden box to the pathological institute. The remains were buried at the Brainless Graveyard. Bringing back the brains through  Stitch Your Brain project expanded into a still growing Danish collection of 70+ works. The national newspaper POLITIKEN and Danish medical journal reported.  The works were on show until October 2022.  At the finnissage results of the study and a pre-view were presented. The book will be published by JapSamBooks in spring 2023.
