Potatoes singing for Denmark

The Power of the Mind 2 / “I Hear Denmark Singing”, by Copenhagen-based artist Mogens Jacobsen, takes a song by the Danish Minister for Refugee, Immigration and Integration, Bertel Haarder, as the point of departure for a political comment.


An unstable online version of the song is connected to the installation made of a web server with a transcription of the interview and an electric network of potatoes (the Danish national food).

When the potatoes begin to dry out or sprout his stupid song will gradually disappear as a sign of fading memory and the text be replaced by heart shaped symbols.

“I Heard Denmark Singing” / Power of the Mind 2 can be seen the Electrohype biennial 2004 in Malmö, Sweden. Runs Nov. 27 till Jan. 23.
