  • "DEN FRIE", the actual name "DEN FRIE UDSTILLINGSBYGNING" means "FREE EXHIBITION BUILDING", considers its main task to show exhibitions rooted in the collective tradition of exhibitions. "FREE" should be understood as being alternative and free from formally supported by the institution. Here special emphasis is placed on the community of contemporary art, artists ' associations and experimental groups and unions. The "DEN FRIE" is built by artists and is owned by performers, and its primary purpose is to present to the public the latest contemporary art. Here you will be presented with an interesting and varied exhibition program consisting of approx. 10 exhibitions annually with the participation of Danish and foreign artists, who relate to current problems. The exhibition building is a platform for a lively art and a new artistic production with the participation of many artists and a close dialogue between art, artist and audience. " DEN FRIE "is housed in one of the most remarkable architectural buildings in Copenhagen designed by J. F. Willumsen in 1898 years. The front sculpture of the building depicts Pegaza with a young man on his back-a symbol that shows here free art. Once, like today, the mantra is obligatory that "DEN FRIE" "is crazy at the point of the past."

  • This is not contemporary art, these are scriblings of amateurs, below the level of an average 5-years old. A pure waste of time  more »

  • Not open due to a change in exhibitions. No sign outside to warn visitors of this and no mention on Copenhagen card website. Also not at all obvious where the entrance was. Overall you cost me time I paid for from my Copenhagen card because you don't advertise closures. So thanks!
  • This is a rather strange place featuring "modern and contemporary" art and even though I consider myself very open minded, the exhibits were rather strange and verging on grotesque. The place is small and it was strangely hot inside. It has a small shop and cafe but nothing really noteworthy. Not a place I would recommend.
