An evening dedicated to NATURE
Thursday, 16 November at 19:00–21:00 has nature as its overarching theme. Among others, you can meet professor at Aarhus University Jens-Christian Svenning, and artist Tue Greenfort.
Art, science and beer
Science | Passion is organized by the Carlsberg Foundation, the New Carlsberg Foundation and the Glyptotek in cooperation with Politiken Live. In the evenings events, which take place in the Assembly Hall at the Glyptotek, archaeologists, physicists and visual artists engage in live interviews with journalists from the Danish newspaper Politiken. The events also feature contributions from Carlsberg Laboratory and guided close-up studies of selected masterpieces from the rich collection at the Glyptotek. Each event revolves around a current theme, and during the break, participants can enjoy a complimentary glass of the evening’s beer.
It runs in the family
Science and art are deeply embedded in the Carlsberg family’s DNA. The founder of Carlsberg, J. C. Jacobsen, modernized beer-making by scientific means and laid the basis for Carlsberg’s still ongoing massive support for science by establishing the Carlsberg Foundation. His son Carl Jacobsen followed a similar path; with the earnings from his brewery and the founding of the New Carlsberg Foundation he became the biggest Danish patron of the arts to date, in part by donating his own vast art collection and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Today, the Carlsberg Foundation and the New Carlsberg Foundation are among the biggest funders in Denmark of science and the arts, respectively.
This diverse and vibrant legacy forms the core of Science | Passion, which aims to create a new format for conveying some of the many insights of science and the arts.
