The Wax Museum of Power
The Wax Museum of Power (Magtens Voksmuseum) is an exhibition where you can meet life-size reproductions of the ten civil servants criticized in the Mink Commission report. From the head of department at the Prime Minister’s Office, Barbara Bertelsen, to the head of department at the Ministry of Justice, Johan Legarth, to the most unknown of them. Such as Birgitte Buch and Hanne Larsen. This is your chance to look the ten officials in the eye. Each wax figure will be accompanied by a plaque where you can read their resumés as well an excerpt of the criticism that the Mink Commission directed at them. There will also be a text on what the consequences have been for each civil servant. Finally, the exhibition will contain a plaque recapping the seven central duties of civil servants.
