I can only suggest that he would combat false consciousness to awaken people to their true interests has much to do, because the sleep is very deep. And I do not intend here to provide a lullaby but merely to sneak in and watch the people snore [Erving Goffman, Frame Analysis, 1974, p. 14].

Bertrand Russell’s 10 Commandments of Teaching
"Perhaps the essence of the Liberal outlook could be summed up in a new decalogue, not intended to replace the old one but only to supplement it. The Ten Commandments that, as a teacher, I should wish to promulgate, might be set forth as follows:
- Do not feel absolutely certain of anything. 2 .Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.
- Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.
- When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.
- Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.
- Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.
- Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
- Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.
- Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.
- Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.”

**INDBYDELSE TIL DELTAGELSE I GRUPPEUDSTILLING **
Indbydelse til at udstille på Kunstnerfællesskabet/Udstillingsstedet Habitat i Odense.
Et uafhængigt sted startet og drevet af akademi studerende fra Det Fynske og Det Jyske Kunstakademi.
Udstillingens formål er at vise og se, hvad maleriet kan her i år 2013. Forventningen er at skabe en alsidig
og modig udstilling og møde nogle nye interessante mennesker på tværs af akademierne. Medier som
f.eks. performance, video etc. med afsæt i maleriet, eller med referencer i den retning, er også meget
Vi indbyder Det Kgl . Danske Kunstakademi, Det Fynske Kunstakademi, Det Jyske Kunstakademi, samt et par andre folk der kunne være interessante at have med.
Der er på nuværende tidspunkt i ngen økonomiske midler til rådighed, men det er muligt at overnatte, tage bad og lave mad på udstillingsstedet i opbygningsperioden. Vi håber, at alle der vælger at være med i udstillingen, vil tage en aktiv del i kurateringen og opbygningen af udstillingen. Habitat står for at lave PR for udstillingen og passe udstillingen i åbningsperioden. Der arbejdes på at få skaffet penge til f.eks. transportudgifter, men indtil videre er det noget, man sel v må betale for.
Opbygning af udstillingen vil foregå mellem d. 10. Og 13. December, men for at vores kommunikation kan begynde inden da, vi l der blive oprettet et lukket forum. Der vil man kunne holde sig opdateret og deltage i udstillingens udvikling. Hvis du er interesseret i at være med i udstillingen så skriv allerede nu, da det giver et bedre overblik over, hvor mange der deltager.
Da vi forhåbentligt bliver mange til at udstille, er det nok en god ide ikke at tænke i alt for store formater i forhold til værker, da vi kun har ca. 110m2 at gøre godt med.
Vi håber meget at du har lyst til at deltage i udstillingen og være med til at vise Odense og resten af DK et nyt billede af, hvad maleri et er anno 2013. DATOER Fernisering fredag d. 13 December 2013 Opbygning af udstillingen bliver fra d. 10 - 12 december Udstillingen vil have åbent d. 13 , 14, 15, 19 og 20 december Deadline for tilmelding 15.

Captive Portal: Have you got an unused computer or wireless router?
I have recently embarked on three pilot projects under the caption Captive Portal. Participants are invited to create digital artworks linked to wireless networks in one form or another, situated in five different locations in Copenhagen. The first three sites have generously been offered a location privately from the worlds of business and institutions. These sites are now ready to open.
The idea behind the three pilot projects is to learn how to make use of more permanent non-profit wireless distribution networks where art works are made available to everybody who logs in on any wireless network. In January when all the contributions have come in, a homepage will appear with a map telling where the sites are located. Online it is the locations only that are available and not the sites themselves. In order to see the actual projects you have to move physically to where they are located geographically. Apart from those who purposely seek out the project in question, the five open networks function as a kind of trap for people who are on the lookout for free internet: Whichever way you may attempt to gain access via these wireless networks, from Google to Facebook, you get one of the five art works instead.
In this connection I am on the look-out for discarded hardware to install the wireless network onto. If you happen to have an old computer or wireless router which you never use or are willing to loan (and if you live in Copenhagen or suburbs or if you are willing to dispatch it) I would be happy to hear from you.
During the past few years I have become increasingly unhappy about the way demands on size of audiences, representation of Danish national identity, mediation of works to broader audiences etc. are beginning to influence my projects. As I see it, the demands also affect the Danish art scene and tend to result in a growing uniformity and sameness. It is worrying, I think, that the non-profit scene in Copenhagen to a large extend exists only because of state funding.
This is why everybody working with the project – from people who donate hardware, newspaper-people and programmers to the artists themselves – are all unpaid. This is not because it is especially heroic to work without getting paid, but because the project attempts to keep its fundamental infrastructure independent and its survival capacity intact.
I myself do not participate in the first three pilot projects, but Captive Portal Network is an attempt to create that relatively unregulated and free-flowing space that I personally miss to implement my projects. Alongside the three above projects I work to establish a situation that will make it possible for Captive Portal to continue as a collaborative project open to other people to participate and present their ideas. A project, in fact, that may continue in unforeseen directions without my agenda.
As already mentioned, I am only too happy to receive disused hardware. I would also like to hear from you if you have any ideas, comments and the like. All the Best, Kristoffer Ørum
