SPECIAL EXHIBITION - YOUNG IN THE 60S

EXPERIENCE THE EXHIBITION 'YOUNG IN THE 60S'

4 February – 14 December 2019

The special exhibition Young in the 60s zooms in on a decade that in many ways changed Denmark. In the 1960s the youth saw the opportunities that lay ahead of them and they became an important driving force behind changing society.

The youth stepped into character and formed new trends in fashion and music despite of what their parents’ generation might think of this.

In the special exhibition you can experience rooms and all kinds of original effects typical of the time. Visit the teenager’s rooms and discover how boys and girls decorated their rooms in the 60s or feel the relaxed atmosphere of the hippies in the flower power room.

Youth in the 60s exhibits a decade in which young people created their very own identity through attitude, music, culture and fashion. Let your thoughts flow back to the time of fan culture and rock and beat music. Discover the diverse and amazing fashion that stated the youth’s independent attitude toward society and dress and expression.

Slacks, OpArt, turtlenecks and skirts in mini, midi and maxi are among many of the trends that can be experienced at the museum Tidens Samling this year.

The special exhibition is co-created with historian Ove Dahl and supported by Ingeniør N. M. Knudsens Fond.
