Undercover boss – DSB

You can follow a DSB boss undercover in three different parts of the company here. No graffiti content.

Undercover chef – DSB
11. jan. 2011
Den øverst ansvarlige for DSB’s togdrift, 49-årige Frank Olesen, er chef for mere end halvdelen af DSB’s 9.300 ansatte. Nu trækker han selv i arbejdstøjet og går på gulvet for at undersøge, hvorfor kunderne ikke altid er tilfredse med DSB, og hvordan det kan være, at togene ind imellem ikke kører til tiden.

Wame convicted


A 19 year old man, who had plead innocent when the case against him started, was convicted of doing graffiti on 155 s-trains today. The court decided that, due to his young age and him having no prior convictions, the 68 days already served was enough actual jail time. He will not have to serve the last 9 months of his one year sentence on the condition that he completes 240 hours of community service.

The judge also stated that in her opinion DSB´s claim of 2.3 million DKR worth of damage is too high. She estimates the real figure to be about 1.5 million DKR. The amount of compensation for the damage done will be determined in a civil law suit at a later date.

Per Arnoldi and graffiti

Per Arnoldi, dit konservative røvhul By bering
Lyssna: Kontroversiell ny ordförande i danska konstrådet
Swedish radio did a little interview with Per Arnoldi, who will lead The Danish Arts Agency from the 1st of April. The agency hands out about 400 million DKR a year to artist and art projects. In the interview you can listen to here he does not have kind words for graffiti as an art form and he criticizes his predecessors for being too youth and street art fixated.

Graffiti, det kan ikke nytte noget at vi bliver forelsket i graffiti, for graffiti er hærværk.

Er vi sikker på at det[graffiti] er en ungdomskultur? Er vi sikker på at det ikke er noget lort?
