Goodiepal (Kristian Parl Bjørn Vester, b. 1974–76) is a Danish musician, performance artist, lecturer, and activist operating on the fringes of society. Goodiepal rides thousands of kilometres on a self-built bicycle that he uses to power his shows. He has released a record with a genuine 500-krone banknote embedded in the vinyl – priced at 250 kroner. Goodiepal has put together an exhibition for the National Museum of Denmark comprising all his material possessions, and he creates his art outside of customary institutions and norms. Goodiepal challenges us to reflect on our view of the world. What remains of us if we only exist to serve the system? What is the Goodiepal Equation?
