Kehnet Nielsen

Kirsten Dufour has a background as a classic sculptor, but today her individual works combine aesthetic ideas with political messages, often ending up in a digital expression. Dufour works in different media, e.g. installation and video art. She is a member of the YNKB (Ydre Nørrebro Kulturbureau) focussing on integrating the viewer in socio-political projects such as “Peoples Museum” in Palestina in 2009. Along with Finn Thybo Kirsten, Dufour was the 2010-recipient of the Eckersberg Medal. Among other exhibitions she has contributed to the first woman’s exhibition in Denmark named “7 Damebilleder”, the Prague Biennale in 2003 and “Spacemaker” in Munich in 2004.
