GYMNASIUM

In ancient Greece, The Gymnasion was the place where young men received mental and bodily education. The young athletes trained naked, while they got dressed for life. Today, more than 2300 years later, the Danish Gymnasium education plays a similar role. In 2016 more than 73% percent of the students from ground school choose this academic path of education. Often the students are blamed of being drunk and immature, however according to themselves, the academic and social pressure is huge, forcing many to overstep boundaries in order get good grades. Stepping into this key part of the danish wellfair system, they’re not naked, but still like clean sheets, ready to be shaped in an environment filled with intoxicating experiences, competitive spirits and insecurity.
