Quotation from Lousiana Winter Programme 2009/10 : “THE WORLD IS YOURS should be seen as a generous and optimistic proposition, recognizing that the individual is free to realize him- or herself in the expanding global space. But the world is not just yours. There is an “ours” in “(y)ours”, and as we become more closely connected to the larger, common world, we must consider problems and assume responsibilities beyond our narrow, private circles. Every day we become aware that the politics, the economy, the sicknesses, the human rights and chimney smoke of other places concern us too.

THE WORLD IS YOURS presents works that startle, involve, tease, provoke or leave their mark on the viewer. Several of the works show something strange happening in otherwise familiar spaces.” (Unquote).

24 acclaimed international artists participate in the exhibition THE WORLD IS YOURS:

Monica Bonvicini (IT), Tom Burr (US), Mircea Cantor (RO), Gardar Eide Einarsson (NO), Olafur Eliasson (DK), Simon Evans (GB) Cao Fei (CN), Douglas Gordon (GB), Shilpa Gupta (IN), Natascha Sadr Haghighian (IR), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MX), Elliott Hundley (US), Emily Jacir (PS), Matthew Day Jackson (US), Michel Majerus (LU), Corey Mc Corkle (US), Aernout Mik (NL), Sebastian Diaz Morales (AR), Simon Dybbroe Møller (DK), Adrian Paci (AL), Pipilotti Rist (CH), Chiharu Shiota (JP), Superflex (DK) and Sissel Tolaas (NO).
