NOW, it's so November and that means it's almost December. But you shouldn’t be allowed to hide away and not witness the city's culture behind the annual Christmas present craziness. Almost all the events are free of charge this week. Play with the darkness at Brandt's 13, voyeuristic insight into Lars von Trier's brain at Brandts, new-feminism with Emma Holten, and a debate about Odense's cultural life with mayor Peter Rahbæk Juel. A real pleasure! My

New feminism wave What is feminism, when it is no longer only about hairy armpits?


New feminism wave
Talk and debate | Kl. 19:00 - 21:00 | Farvergården 19, Odense C | Price: 219 Kr. | Buy tickets here | Written by: My | Translated by: Laura Malahovska

Location: Magasinet
Organizer: Tikko

You most likely won’t have that "bah-whatever"-like feeling when you read this. Your heart is already beating faster and you have thought of some arguments. About why feminism is man-hating, socially destructive crap. About why non-feminists are unenlightened and should not be allowed to vote. And then we could sit and shout "stupid" at each other. But we could also let it be.

Everyone is welcome to the lecture with the new-feminist Emma Holten, who would like to come across what the new type of feminism is nothing like the "angry-bra-less-woman-from-1970s".

She is probably easy to hate if you feel that one's masculinity is a little hurt. Mine is not, and I think she has guts. A victim of revenge porn, small and shameless, so as to rise and not just spit your revenge, but reflect on the community and open her arms to the anguished and let herself be the target of even more bullshit. Queen.

I personally think you should fill a flask with smoky whiskey or whatever else you like and put it in your inner pocket and then take a little bad flashlight in one hand and a friend or lover in the other. And then try to see if you can get lost at Brandts 13.

The concept is very simple: see the same art, but do it in the dark. And I’m so in. I spent an insane amount of time of my childhood to make familiar rooms in my childhood home completely dark so to sit there and block my eyes from almost all light and rejoice and shudder. Things are different in the dark. Yikes!

The mayor is coming! With peace? With money in the bag? With electorate?


The mayor is coming!
Talk and debate | Kl. 14:30 - 16:00 | Ny Vestergade 18, Odense C | Price: 0 Kr. | Buy tickets here | Written by: My | Translated by: Laura Malahovska

Location: Teater Momentum

When I was ... younger ... there was not much that could make me more bored that hearing the word "municipal elections". But like “interest-only loans" and "K3's", now there is a meaning behind these words. And emotions. Oh, the feels. It's damn important. Who should decide? They can both improve and degrade, and you know they will. So it's not such a waste of your time, that cross matter.

But you can’t say to Odense's residents "You don’t even want democracy” either. Just try and LISTEN how much we do: right now, as I write this, the event description says that: 1) the mayor is coming, and 2) that the topic is Odense's cultural life. Period. It will take an hour and a half. And everyone wants to be there.

Okay, it is also strictly states that it will be an "alternative debate". And, honestly, yes, please. Give me something alternative. Give me something gritty. Give me something heartfelt.

Go - Peter Rahbæk Juel.

The good with the evil Voyeuristic insight into the filmmaker's work


The good with the evil
Exhibition | Kl. 19:00 - 21:05 | Brandts Torv 1, Odense C | Price: 0 Kr. | Written by: My | Translated by: Laura Malahovska

Location: Brandts
Organizer: Brandts / Zentropa

Lars von Trier has become an attraction. Because most of us, who are conforming and doing all we can to fit in and build bridges, are the ones to be most fascinated about those who are so provocative that it’s almost impossible to look at it, but you want to look anyway.

He is allover the place. He is hard. And he has made the filmmaking extra hard for himself over and over again - just to - yes, why? Because he's bored with all the scenery? All that artificial light? Will it be too easy, for a genius, to make ingenious things?

So incredibly good at thinking things that just do not appear in the heads of the rest of us. How the hell does the man do it? Where does it come from? Talking demonic foxes, childish in spirits, black and white high-aesthetic porn?

Everyone would love to know. I would. And you will too. Even though you would rather not. And they know that well at Brandts and Zentropa. They are hosting an exhibition there. So now we can snoop around in "his artistic creation process". Mm, yes? I do not quite know what to think about it. Will it enrich my life? Dunno - but I have to see.

The entrance is free and you don’t even have to sign up. See you.
