Take Me (I’m Yours)
Curated by Christian Boltanski, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Chiara Parisi, Michael Thouber

From May 4 to August 7, Take Me (I’m Yours), a collective and interactive exhibition which brings together the works of 28 international artists, is turning the palace of Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s 19th century rooms into a venue for free and creative exchange, designed to unsettle the relationship between a work of art and its viewer. Displayed in Kunsthal Charlottenborg, the exhibition is an opportunity to revisit the myth of the unique artwork and question its methods of production. Visitors are invited, even encouraged, to touch, use and take away the artists’ projects and ideas.

They were joined first by Chiara Parisi, director of Cultural Programmes at Monnaie de Paris, who showed a new and extended version of the exhibition in the autumn of 2015, and now by Michael Thouber, director at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, who in collaboration with the curator team will present a new version for Copenhagen.
