Tanja Nelleman Poulsen, 43 min. Denmark 1999

Fremmedsyn is a TV project, which questions Danish nationality. As a response to how the "new Danes / the newcomers" are usually represented by Danish media, 15 people from 15 different countries who settled in Denmark were invited to speak about Danes and Denmark. The project was conceived as inserts in television programs and therefor consists of 2-3 minute long spots which match the average length of Danish commercials.
(Fremmedsyn is a play on words on the view of the future and view of the foreigners)

Tanja Nelleman Poulsen
studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Aarhus, Denmark. She uses site specific interventions in public spaces to address social issues in everyday life, challenging the conventional relationship between artwork and viewer, art and everyday life.
