Psychomobile #1: The World Clock

25-year anniversary of the exhibition

12.11.21 - 20.02.22

Exactly 25 years ago, GL STRAND was turned on its head.
Film director Lars von Trier occupied the exhibition building with Psychomobile # 1: The World Clock and transformed the exhibition spaces and the courtyard into something never seen before.

53 actors took part in a comprehensive theatre performance, consisting of 19 scenes spread out across  GL STRAND, all in which the exhibition guests could move around freely.

The mood of the theatre play was remote-controlled by monitoring movements from an anthill in El Paso, New Mexico, live-transmitted through a satellite link.

On the 25th anniversary of the exhibition, we revisit this equally chaotic and eye-opening project in GL STRAND.

In the cinema on the 3rd floor, we show the documentary “The Exhibited” by film director Jesper Jargil created during the exhibition Psychomobile # 1: The World Clock Project.
The film is accompanied by a series of still photographs from the recordings.

Jesper Jargil followed those involved in the exhibition with his camera and documented the actors as well as the stage director Morten Arnfred in their efforts to follow the radical idea, format, and concept of the exhibition. Jesper Jargil contributed to the exhibition by being responsible for ensuring live recordings of the anthill in New Mexico and the film features interviews with Lars von Trier and several of the actors recorded after the exhibition ended.

During the winter we will present so-called live sessions, which will include, among other things, panel debates and presentations of new artistic projects influenced by the theme of losing control in a seemingly structured world, which illustrates the art field’s more performative and transgressive development today.
Keep an eye on the calendar.
