    Made in Denmark.

    Sound excerpt and photo collage from the project (Original language: Danish; subtitles: Russian). In their artistic practice Nils Agdler and Timo Menke both share a common interest in contemporary social phenomena, storytelling and history. Based on a previous collaboration focusing on electricity and electrical hypersensitivity (Fugitives from the Fields), they have developed an artistic project dealing with genetic donations. “Made in Denmark” as shown at the Darwin Museum is an excerpt from the film, investigating the international commercial distribution of premium Danish genetic material from the anonymous donors’ perspective.
