SOCLE DU MONDE BIENNALE 2020
Welcome Back My Friends to The Show That Never Ends
April 24th – August 27th, 2020
Opening: April 24th, 2020

The Socle du Monde Biennale 2020 “Welcome Back My Friends to The Show That Never Ends” bridges past, present and future by fostering an exchange between different generations of international artists. The city of Herning, three museums and a former high school are transformed into a showplace for seven unique stages, connecting historical Arte Povera works with younger and emergent positions.

With architectural interventions, playful objects and installations, thought-provoking images and sound, Socle du Monde invites visitors to participate in a festival-like experience where real and artistic life melts, where geographic and artistic boundaries are blurred and where old and new friends meet.
