The first artworks will be exhibited in 2018, on display on the festival site and in Tønder Art Museum (the Pump House). Each year, the artists will collect material for the following year’s exhibition, and the whole project will culminate in a major exhibition marking the occasion of Tønder Festival’s half-centenary.

During their nine-year collaboration, Flyvbjerg and Assenholt have exhibited and published works showing their interest in memorials and old tales in modern garb, and their passion for combining literature, pictorial art and music.
