Palle Nielsen (Copenhagen, Denmark, 1942) studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and is an artist and researcher in urbanism and landscape architecture. He currently lives and works in Oster Kippinge, Denmark. Shortly after completing his studies, he distanced himself from the artistic system to become an activist, principally through the construction of children’s parks in working-class areas of Copenhagen and its surroundings.
