The Danish Parliament

This is a portrait of comedian Jacob Haugaard (born 1952.) He was a Member of Parliament from 1994 to 1998. He stood for election as a representative of 'The Association of Consciously Work-Shy Elements'. One of the promises he made during his campaign was to guarantee more downwind on cycle lanes. Haugaard's election to parliament was also unusual in that he was elected to a supplementary seat without being a member of a political party eligible for nomination. He is shown in the painting sitting at his empty desk in the Warehouse wearing a suit made from Brazilian coffee sacks.

  • Danish Description: Portrættet viser medlem af Folketinget Jacob Haugaard (f. 1952.) Han var medlem af Folketinget 1994-98. Jacob Haugaard opstillede som repræsentant for foreningen ”Sammenslutningen af bevidst arbejdssky elementer” I hans valgkamp indgik blandt andet et løfte om mere medvind på cykelstierne. Haugaards valg til Folketinget var også usædvanligt derved, at han blev valgt på et tillægsmandat uden at være medlem af et opstillingsberettiget politisk parti. Haugaard ses på billedet siddende ved sit tomme skrivebord i Provianthuset iklædt en habit syet af brasilianske kaffesække.
