Hanstholm Fyr – Lighthouse Hanstholm

On the countryside near Thisted and Thy National Park there is a lighthouse, which in recent years has housed tourists and presented smaller exhibitions. In collaboration with Thisted Municipality, Råderum is now changing the place into a big new North Atlantic production- and exhibition space. The vision is to transform the lighthouse into a platform, where art and nature can meet each other in new ways.

Råderum believes that the new lighthouse can bring a new art professional dimension into the Danish art scene by allowing an extended focus on Land Art – an area that has not yet taken a firm hold on Danish soil, either in practice or in the art theoretical discussions.

Råderum’s role in the development of the lighthouse is among others to invite local and transatlantic partners, which can integrate nature and art in site-specific practices.
