In this intense speech you will get behind the artist Kasper Købke's awarded Hans Christian Andersen book, which contains more than just Hans Christian Andersen drawings.

Købke has received the Hans Christian Andersen award 2017 and the Klods Hans Award 2016 for his Hans Christian Andersen fairytale book where he has implemented around 1.000 references about for example Andersen's life, work and own time through his 67 meticulous Art Drawings.

Throughout the book Købke is true to Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales - so regardless of age you will always be able to discover a new detail or a new biographical reference in Købke's Hans Christian Andersen drawings.

Kasper Købke is a super living and present speaker, who with both humor and commitment draws the audience into his fascinating world. You go home happy because you were allowed to be a guest in an magical world for a while.

Købke have filmed every drawing hour throughout the 13 months, so you will get a very unique insight in the creation of the world famous authors fairytales through Købke's pencil - and at the same time you will experience the physical decline as closely as possible, as well as the extremely deprivation of the outside world that Købke underwent.

In spite of this Købke claims that he was 100 % mentally present in his Hans Christian Andersen drawings - but is that really true?

If you want to get the answer to that first hand you are more than welcome to contact Købke for further information on pricing and booking at or at phone +45 5123 9825.
