MUSIC AND YOUTH CULTURE AT THE COOLEST MUSEUM IN DENMARK
BEHIND THE SCENES
RAGNAROCK, a branch of the Museum Organization ROMU, was founded in 2016 to explore the modern social phenomenon of youth culture, how it has evolved since the 1950s and how it has influenced the social development in both Denmark and around the world.
While rock music has been covered by other museums on multiple occasions, RAGNAROCK stands apart by primarily focusing on the cultural and social influence that it has had from the 1950’s onward (as opposed to only covering music itself). Generally, the museum focuses on the artists themselves with their exhibits being a sort of shrine to the person or band. However, RAGNAROCK not only examines certain artists, but also the culture legacy that he, she or they left behind in addition to their music. For example, RAGNAROCK interprets the social change that Beatle-mania, caused in the 1960’s and its profound effect on the youth of that decade.
