Ismar Cirkinagic + a-lab

ML2090 First Phase
23th January – 14th March, Copenhagen/ Denmark


Kunsthallen Nikolaj presents the installation Brick of Enlightenment by the Danish-Bosnian artist Ismar Cirkinagic in collaboration with the architectural office a-lab.
The exhibition is the first phase of three in the project ML2090, and is a visual examination of staging power based on the novel 1984 by George Orwell.


Bricks of Enlightenment in Kunsthallen Nikolaj is based on the idea of the Ministry of Love, that in Orwell's novel is a ministry in charge of public love and loyalty to the "Big Brother" in the super state Oceania. The book only gives a sparse description of the building of the Ministry of Love and its appearance. On the basis of an artistic research around the little information that Orwell gives on the Ministry of Love, Cirkinagic visualizes this building in the exhibition, in the form of physical architectural structures, light and sound installations. Cirkinagic has in collaboration with a-lab created a visualization of a building that usually only exists in the reader's imagination.
