The book Where People Move. 50 art decorations from the history of the New Carlsberg Foundation by Tom Hermansen presents 50 unique works from the past ten decades and a fascinating story about the artists, about the creation of the decorations and about the interaction of the works with their surroundings. From Vilhelm Lundstrøm's mosaics, which hang isolated high up on the walls in Frederiksberg Swimming Pool, to Karin Lorentzen's water art at Torvet in Lemvig.
Art must go "where people walk and have it in front of their eyes every day," believed brewer Carl Jacobsen, and since the mid-1920s the New Carlsberg Foundation has financed hundreds of artistic decorations in institutions and urban spaces all over Denmark.
The New Carlsberg Foundation was established in 1902 by brewer Carl Jacobsen and is primarily financed by dividends from shares from Carlsberg A/S. Today, the foundation continues to work to realize the brewer's vision of strengthening art in society and making it accessible to the widest possible audience.
