The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

The Little Mermaid

This small siren, less than a meter and a half tall, is the protagonist of one of the most famous fairy tales of the #Danish author Hans Christian Andersen: “The Little Mermaid, the same that Disney has made even more famous through the cartoon.

☞ Do you know…

‣ Icon of the capital, it’s placed on a rock in the sea at the entrance to the #port of Copenhagen. The statue was commissioned by the son of the founder of the #Carlsberg brewery, one of the most important in the world, to be a gift to the city. For the realization of the work the sculptor used his wife as a model

‣ The #littlemermaid has suffered many abuses, acts of vandalism by fanatics, extremists, thugs. It was in fact beheaded twice, amputated of one arm, repeatedly colored and even teared off from the rock and disappeared for a few days. All this, besides provoking the indignation of the #community and of the tourists who come from everywhere to admire and photograph it, has meant that what we see today is one of the copies that over time have been replaced
