Particularly worth singling<br />out are the exhibitions the Jewellery Box, Aarhus Story and<br />the Car Seller, all of which are permanent and will still be here<br />after the end of the Cultural Capital Year. Also worth emphasizing<br />is the production Aarhus Stories, which was shown in the heart of<br />Aarhus, just like the special exhibitions and books that the Den<br />Gamle By is behind – efforts that have required creativity and a<br />total investment of just under DKK 100 million, and which until<br />now (the beginning of October) have resulted in a growth in visitors<br />of over 15 percent.</p> 2018-02-05T16:25:19+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fra Aarhus Museum til Aarhus Fortæller 2018-07-03T10:13:19+02:00 Thomas Bloch Ravn <p>From Aarhus Museum to Aarhus Story<br />With Aarhus Story Den Gamle By has realized a long-standing<br />wish for a permanent exhibition that shows the history of the city,<br />from the Aros of the Viking Age to the modern city that we<br />experience<br />Aarhus as today. Museum Director Thomas Bloch<br />Ravn writes about the museum history of the city from the first<br />museum in 1861 to the exhibition Aarhus Story as the most recent<br />branch on the tree.</p> 2018-02-05T16:25:19+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Aarhus Fortæller - En tur gennem udstillingen 2018-07-03T10:13:20+02:00 Martin Brandt Djupdræt Lisbeth Skjernov Søren Tange Rasmussen Connie Jantzen <p>Aarhus Story – a walk through the exhibition<br />Aarhus Story is an underground time travel through 1200 years of<br />history.

The following year<br />the Salling charity foundations granted the funding necessary for<br />a permanent exhibition about the history of Aarhus. Immediately<br />afterwards the work began on drawing up a conceptual plan in<br />which target groups, content and presentation principles were<br />defined and used as guidelines in the realization of the exhibition<br />Aarhus Story.</p> 2018-02-05T16:25:20+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Meget mere end Aarhus Fortæller 2018-07-03T10:13:22+02:00 Anneken Appel Laursen <p>Much more than Aarhus Story<br />The establishment of Aarhus Story was a milestone in the activities<br />of Den Gamle By as responsible for the city’s history. In the<br />time ahead we will be working in Den Gamle By to find models<br />for how we can deal with the role as the local museum for<br />Aarhus.<br />We expect this to be a never ending story.</p> 2018-02-05T16:25:20+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Årsberetning Dansk Center for Byhistorie 2018-07-03T10:13:23+02:00 Mikkel Thelle <p>Danish Centre for Urban History annual report<br />The year has been marked by many activities, major and minor.<br />The Centre is about to round off the research network project<br />“Shop, city, consumer” about Danish consumption culture with an<br />anthology published in November, “The Cultural History of Consumption”.<br />On the research project “Urban Consumption” much<br />has also been done, and the results are being documented, having<br />already been presented at conferences during the year.
