Den Gamle By: Danmarks Købstadmuseum (Årbog) da-DK Den Gamle By og forfatterne har ophavsretten til artiklerne i Den Gamle Bys årbøger. (Kitt Boding-Jensen) (Kitt Boding-Jensen) Mon, 08 Jan 2024 12:41:25 +0100 OJS 60 Den tingene iboende kraft <p>Med udgangen af marts 2024 slutter Thomas Bloch Ravn som direktør efter godt 28 år i spidsen for Den Gamle By. I disse næsten tre årtier er Den Gamle By blevet gennemgribende gentænkt, og i denne artikel fortæller Thomas Bloch Ravn, hvordan han i sine første år som direktør fik en helt særlig kontakt til Den Gamle Bys oprindelige idé og bankende hjerte.</p> <p>English abstract<br>The Unique Energy<br>At the end of March 2024, Thomas Bloch Ravn will step down as director after 28 years at the helm of Den Gamle By. For nearly three<br>decades, Den Gamle By has undergone an extensive reinvention, and in the article, Thomas Bloch Ravn shares how he has drawn<br>inspiration from founder Peter Holm’s initial plans for his museum. Thomas Bloch Ravn’s connection to this, the essence of Den Gamle<br>By, was forged through conversations with former museum curator Erna Lorenzen, who worked with Peter Holm from 1935 to 1945. The director advises his successor to embrace the unique energy residing deep within Den Gamle By’s core concept.</p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Årets gang og planer for fremtiden <p><strong>Efter nogle hårde år er Den Gamle By nu for alvor ved igen at komme oven vande. Det går godt med besøgstallet, som i skrivende stund ligger næsten 50.000 over 2022. Også restauranter og butikker er i god gænge, og går julen som sidste år, vil der forhåbentlig være grundlag for at opgradere organisationen, så vi for alvor kan begynde at indhente det betydelige efterslæb, der opstod under coronakrisen.</strong></p> <p><strong>Back on Track<br>After a few challenging years, Den Gamle By is now making a real comeback. Visitor numbers are looking strong, currently&nbsp; exceeding the figures of 2022 by 50,000. The restaurants and shops are also thriving, and if Christmas goes as well as it did last year, we are hopeful that we will have a foundation for upgrading the organisation, allowing us to address the significant challenges that emerged during the COVID-19 crisis. We are eagerly awaiting the impact of the government’s planned reform of museum funding. Will they distribute the resources thinly across the entire country, or will they prioritise the museums that enjoy popular favour, contribute to tourism and tell stories that resonate with many Danes? We don’t know, but we hope the government will support beacons like Den Gamle By, which can be seen from afar and are cherished by many.</strong></p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 2014-gaden <p>2014 besluttede Den Gamle By at indrette en lille gade, der viser året 2014. På Hendes Majestæt Dronningens 75-års fødselsdag 16. april året efter omdøbte vi gaden til Dronning Margrethes Gade. Her finder man en håndfuld butikker og to hjem. I artiklen oplyser museumsinspektørerne Anna Wowk Vestergaard, Erik Nellemann Nielsen og Mette Ernst Andersen om tankerne bag og arbejdet med udformningen af den nye del af Den Gamle By.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The museum’s New Street<br>In the 2014 street, museum visitors are now met with their own time when they step into Den Gamle By. The familiar feeling provides a<br>safe base for a journey through time, as well as fertile ground for new dialogue across generations. A dialogue that also lets the younger visitors share their memories of the very recent past. Guests can visit the pizzeria, the Single Woman and the Rainbow Family, and get a closer look at Blockbuster, Danske Bank, the Consol Solcenter tanning salon and 7-Eleven. Visitors encounter the pop hits of the period and taste the favourite pizza of the year, but the street also tells stories of businesses that time did not treat so well. The exhibitions have been created in close cooperation with participants such as the inhabitants of the homes and employees of the businesses that run the shops.</p> Mette Ernst Andersen, Anna Wowk Vestergaard, Erik Nellemann Nielsen Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Napoli Pizza <p>Den Gamle By har fået et pizzeria, der er en del af den nye 2014-gade. I artiklen fortæller projektmedarbejder Mie Kjelst Kristensen og museumsinspektør Erik Nellemann Nielsen om tilblivelsen af pizzeriaet og serverer en lille bid af pizzaens historie.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>From Italy to Den Gamle By<br>Den Gamle By now has a pizzeria. It is located in the new 2014 street, and visitors can enjoy a pizza. The inspiration for the interior&nbsp; comes from four pizzerias on Lolland and Falster, which the museum visited in order to get better representation of the two islands at the museum. In addition to serving pizza we also convey its history. Pizza presumably originates in Naples, where Queen Margherita’s visit in 1889 helped make it famous. Although Danes knew of pizza in the 1930s, it did not become widespread until the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. In 2014 pizzerias were a very common sight in Danish streets and now you can experience a typical Danish pizzeria in Den Gamle By – and can enjoy a pizza.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mie Kjelst Kristensen, Erik Nellemann Nielsen Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Bladtegningen - en kommentar i tiden <p>Endnu en udstilling er føjet til Den Gamle Bys mangfoldighed af oplevelser. 25. august i år kunne museet nemlig slå dørene op til en broget verden af bladtegninger. Leder af Museet for Dansk Bladtegning Elsebeth Aasted Schanz fortæller her om overvejelserne bag den permanente udstilling.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Museum of Editorial Cartoons<br>On August 25 2023 Her Majesty Queen Margrethe cut the ribbon for The Museum of Editorial Cartoons and thereby opened the permanent exhibition of Danish newspaper and cartoons in Den Gamle By. The cartoons can be experienced in the yellow pavilion beyond the main entrance. This pavilion was designed by Anton Rosen (1859-1928) and built for The National Exhibition of 1909 in Aarhus. The exhibition displays 175 years of editorial cartoon history and is based on a collection of around 300,000 cartoons by 225 different cartoonists. Since the mid-1800s cartoons have captivated and captured the world around us and showcased the present through their art lines. Cartoons are the heartbeat of their age, and the collection is a living entity where the many genres of editorial cartoons will be continually displayed and updated. As such, The Museum of Editorial Cartoons is actual contemporary history with strong roots in the past.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Elsebeth Aasted Schanz Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Gensyn med Danmarks største blomsterforretning <p>Gottlieb Blomster flyttede i 1966 til nye lokaler på Åboulevarden i Aarhus. Her genåbnede den som en topmoderne butik indrettet efter tidens trends. Butikken lukkede i 1975 og er nu genskabt i Den Gamle By, hvor den er med til at fortælle historien om, hvordan velstandsstigningen i løbet af 1960’erne blev afspejlet i et stigende salg af ting til hjemmet. Blomster og grønne planter blev sammen med moderigtigt tilbehør en måde at følge moden i indretningstendenserne på. Museumsinspektør Anna Wowk Vestergaard planter historien om Gottlieb Blomster.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Biggest Florist Shop in Denmark<br>The florist shop Gottlieb Blomster opened on Easter 2023 in Den Gamle By’s 1974 pedestrian street. The original Gottlieb Blomster<br>moved to new premises in Aarhus in 1966 and reopened as a cutting edge store. The shop tells the story of how growing wealth in<br>the 1960s led to an increase in sales of products for the home. Green plants and dried flowers became fashionable, and the florists combined them with accessories made of ceramics and glass, so that the furnishing trends could be followed without the need to replace the entire living room. As a brand new offer, Gottlieb Blomster had an express purchase section that could compete with the supermarkets selling small house plants. It was a great success and other florists copied the concept. Despite this, the store had to close in 1975.&nbsp; Fortunately for us, the Gottlieb Family stored the furnishings and stock in a basement where it remained as a time capsule until 2012 when it was brought to Den Gamle By. Once again home accessories fill the shop along with the popular house plants of the 1970s.</p> Anna Wowk Vestergaard Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Mad i fortid, nutid og fremtid - og i den Gamle By <p>Mad er ikke bare noget, folk putter i munden. Mad siger noget om, hvem man er, og hvor man kommer fra. Mad er en rejse fra jord til bord, men også en rejse i fortid, nutid og fremtid. Alle har brug for mad. Vi dyrker, opbevarer, transporterer, spiser, smider ud eller genbruger. Når vi spiser, bidrager vi til historien med vores valg af råvarer. Museumsinspektør Christian Rasmussen fortæller om madkulturen – også Den Gamle Bys.</p> <p>FOOD – More Than a Meal<br>You are what you eat, as the old saying goes. However, there is much more to food than what we put in our mouths. In Den Gamle<br>By’s summer theme for 2023 “FOOD – More Than a Meal”, visitors could smell, taste, and learn all about food and its cultural history<br>in Denmark. From May to October, activities all around Den Gamle By let visitors explore historical kitchens and gardens, try food-related family activities, and enjoy historical meals. A special exhibition was also part of “FOOD – more than a meal”. It looked at food<br>from a broad social perspective and presented examples of how Nordic companies and organizations work with food and food-related<br>products today, and how they make them sustainable.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Christian Rasmussen Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Jorden kalder på Dansk Plakatmuseum <p>Forurening, miljø og klima har været på dagsordenen længe. Endda før plakater for alvor blev masseudbredt og brugt til at sprede budskabet om, at vi skal passe på jorden. Den Gamle By udvalgte 170 plakater fra det seneste århundrede til udstillingen, der åbnede i februar 2023. Akademisk medarbejder Ekaterina Poliakova fortæller historien.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Environmental History of Posters<br>Pollution, environment and climate have been on the agenda for a while. Even before posters became properly widespread and used<br>to convey the message that we should take care of the earth. Den Gamle By selected 170 posters from the last century to show how<br>we have discussed the topic historically. Each poster is a unique instance of history. But when viewed side by side you can discover<br>interesting narratives, parallels and references. The dates of the environmental and climate-related posters highlight how we moved<br>from talking about nature, environment and pollution to talking about climate after the 1990s.</p> Ekatarina Poliakova Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 En Torvedag i Wiiborg 1831 <p>Martinus Rørbyes fine maleri af en torvedag i Viborg indgår nu i Den Gamle Bys samling af købstadsprospekter. Malerens gengivelse af motivet er så etnografisk fintmærket, at det også er en relevant kilde til dagliglivet i en dansk købstad i første halvdel af 1800-årene. Museumsdirektør Thomas Bloch Ravn fortæller historien.</p> <p>Painting From a Danish City in the 1800s<br>In December 2022 Den Gamle By acquired Martinus Rørbye’s fine painting from 1831 of a market day in Viborg. The painting is now<br>part of Den Gamle By’s collection of town and city prospects. The painter’s depiction of the subject is so ethnographically accurate<br>that it is a relevant source for describing daily life in a Danish city in the first half of the 1800s. In the article, Thomas Bloch Ravn tells the story of the painting, the collection of prospects and their value as sources detailing people’s lives in the first half of the 1800s.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Peter Jensen 1934-2023 <p>Peter Jensen var fra 1981 aktivt medlem af Den Gamle Bys bestyrelse og fra 1998 til 2007 en markant formand for museet. Ikke mindst<br>projektet med genopførelse af Møntmestergården fra København stod hans hjerte nær.</p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Årsberetning for Dansk Center for Byhistorie <p>En længe næret drøm gik i opfyldelse, da Den Gamle By og Dansk Center for Byhistorie 22. juni 2023 kunne udgive det store oversigtsværk ”Danmarks byer fra renæssance til enevælde”.

Der var, og er forsat, meget, der skal rettes op på, men som året skred frem, vendte troen på fremtiden tilbage, og året sluttede meget bedre end forventet.</p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100 Sponsorer <p>-</p> Thomas Bloch Ravn Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 08 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0100
