This week is all about community and idols. Are we united in idolatry? Or do we idolize communities? Let's talk it over at a good old-fashioned game of bingo in this pretty great city of ours. // Albert Petersen

Five years ago, bingo was something your grandma used to do on weeknights before the smoking ban kicked in. But in case you haven’t noticed, bingo is back. Much like hotdogs and slowfood, bingo is everywhere and hard to pass up. The combination of human interaction and competetive play is what young people are into these days.

So you might as well jump on the bandwagon.

I promise I won’t say I told you so when you forget to lift your brow in irony and instead begin to genuinely enjoy yourself once the board is filling up and you only need that last piece in order to yell 'bingo!'

Community is a good thing. Helping out your neighbour; we are in this together; one for all, etcetera. Always better to be part of a community. Or is it? Communities also define themselves against those on the outside - those who are excluded. A football team makes no sense if everyone can be on the team. We link arms to face a common enemy. And when Bush said ‘you are either with us or you are against us’, what he really meant was: 'you are either with us, or you are screwed'.

This week, a new performance opens at theatre Momentum - “OS” (“US”) - dealing with the dynamics of community and exclusion. Can we be said to constitute a nation, when we hold politically disparate views? Are communities of opinion across national borders and cultural divides more meaningful, more powerful?

You could head down to Momentum and be part of the audience for “US” - that’s one community you can be sure to be welcomed into.

Jørgen Leth’s fame is an odd thing, really - the man who has been writing poems and making arthouse films since before I was born has become an unlikely popular hero late in life. It has a lot to do with bicycling, talk radio, a tram in Aarhus and something about the chef’s daughter. Not so much to do with the poetry. His oeuvre. I don’t know for sure, but I imagine that this does not please the man himself.

Hero-worship and Jørgen-menes aside, Here is my solution: head directly to Kulturmaskinen on Thursday. At Kulturmaskinen, you won’t get tram voice-overs, ringtones, or facebook clips. At Kulturmaskinen, there will only be the words. The words, and the music.

Remembering Sam Shaw Pop culture and nostalgia


Remembering Sam Shaw
Exhibition | Kl. 17:00 - 21:00 | Brandts Torv 1, Odense C | Price: 0 Kr. | Written by: Albert Petersen | Translated by: Pil Lindgreen

Organizer: Brandts

You have probably heard of Sam Shaw; he is that guy who took that picture of Marilyn Monroe hopelessly trying to keep her white dress under control. Full-on pop culture. Images of celebrities before the age of the selfie, and before every bypasser became a candid photographer. Iconic images of iconic people, whose breed look a lot different today than they did back then.

Sure, this is old-hollywood nostalgia. If you are one of those people who prefer abstract art, you might even find it corny. But don’t worry - there’s always more abstract art to be had; a few pop cultural icons won’t change that. And admit it - you want to see that photo of the dress up close, in real life.
