Placed in Care
The Danish Welfare Museum
2023

Anbragt
Danmarks Forsorgsmuseum
2023

Over the past 150 years, 150,000 Danish children have been – or are now – placed outside their homes in orphanages, institutions, or foster families. The stories are mostly told by the official child protection system, but only very rarely it is put in the children's own words. The exhibition "Placed in care" puts the children, now grown-ups, in charge to tell their life stories and experiences through interviews, as well as archive materials and various, often very personal artefacts. Thoughts on the public welfare history and development are shared in filmed conversations about the very same objects that are in the exhibition. They are often things from past generations, but the conversations and the similarities in experience connect the now to the past.

The exhibition design emphasizes the powerful and emotion filled stories with simple, but at the same time atmospheric spaces. Slanted furniture and odd angles represent the feeling of the unknown and the chaotic. The display cases with everyday objects merge with the old furniture to give the exhibition a homely look – but with a twist. Digital stations in each room encourage the visitors to take a stand on dilemma-filled questions about emplacements, and to write down their own comments and reactions, that are displayed in the last room of the exhibition – the so-called dialogue room.

"Placed in care" has a children's section as well, where objects, photos and short animated films convey life as placed in another home then and now. The films are authentic stories of four children in foster care, where they talk about themselves and their everyday lives, each film with its own visual style.
The content of both exhibitions was developed in collaboration with De Anbragtes Vilkår (organization working for the rights of children in foster care).

150.000 danske børn har gennem de sidste 150 år været – eller er nu – anbragt uden for hjemmet. Der findes mange beretninger fra børneforsorgen, men kun meget sjældent indeholder disse fortællinger børnenes egne ord. I "ANBRAGT" giver Jeppe ordet til de anbragte børn.

Udstillingens bærende element er tidligere anbragtes egne erindringer, derfor var det vigtigt at udstillingsdesignet fremhævede disse stærke og vigtige fortællinger med et enkelt, men samtidig stemningsfuldt design. Designet bærer præg af skrå møbler og skævheder i et forsøg på, at gengive følelsen af det ukendte og kaotiske, og hvor montrerne smelter sammen med genbrugte møbler for at give udstillingen et hjemligt udtryk – men med et twist.

Udstillingen er støttet af Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond, Augustinus Fonden, Knud Højgaards Fond og Ole Kirk’s Fond.

The former 'orphanage exhibition' was taken down, but a number of the historic objects were included in the new exhibition. E.g. this play wheel, from the infamous children's institution Godhavn.
