The former Minister for Culture in Denmark, Bertel Haarder, carried out the process of creating a “Denmark Canon”. The people were to send in suggestions as to what should be on the list. A small group of curators then narrowed down the suggestions to a total of 20, which were put up for a vote online between 15th and 22nd November 2016. A total of 326,298 people voted and today the following 10 values constitute the “Denmark Canon”.
