Damgaard calls himself “unscientific Kierkegaard-researcher” and since 2001 he has devoted himself to exploring how the literary art of Søren Kierkegaard might actually be lived in a physical everyday reality and how he might be able to share Kierkegaards writing with others in new – not only literary – art forms, so that human beings living today – with their senses! – can directly experience, what it actually is Søren Kierkegaard wanted to achieve with his authorship.
