For the first time in Denmark
Forum Copenhagen, proudly presents the most extensive fair and market
place for 20th Century Design, Vintage Photography and Fine Objects
in the Nordic countries. Visitors attending The Copenhagen Modernism
Show will be able to trace the full impact of the late modernist design
movement, from its post WWII inception, to the experiments of
post-modernity in the 1980s.

The Copenhagen Modernism Show will fill a gap in the Northern European
market for 20th Century design, as a meeting ground has not yet existed
in a large format. What has been lacking here is a place to gather
the sources, traders and the public to fully enjoy and explore the
potential of this time in design. Forum aims to become that place
and plans to hold the Copenhagen Modernism Show annually in springtime.
The Forum Team has networked the market to select the most interesting
collections of Modern Design and Photography, to be able to present
a strong edition of exciting displays to the general public, collectors
and aficionados alike. At the Copenhagen Modernism Show, visitors
will find a surplus of knowledge and insights to the 20th Century
era, both from our participating dealers and galleries, as well as
through our special projects, which include video presentations and
showcases put up by our sponsors and partners.
It is our goal that Copenhagen will become a European beacon for the
appreciation of 20th Century design and images, and to create a functional
meeting ground for the shared interest and enjoyment of everything
exciting and to create a functional meeting ground for the shared
interest and enjoyment of everything exciting from this important
movement in time.
