A Danish artist has been instructed to reimburse 500,000 kroner to the Kunsten Museum after he provided them with two empty canvasses for a project he titled “Take the Money and Run.” Following an extended legal dispute, a Copenhagen court ruled on Monday that Jens Haaning, aged 58, must repay the museum. Kunsten’s director Lasse Andersson revealed that he burst into laughter upon initially encountering the two blank canvasses in 2021 and opted to exhibit them nonetheless.
