Ophør oprør – Dagbog fra en indlæggelse is a literary document from the artist Jakob Jakobsen's three month-long hospitalisation, with anxiety and depression, at the Psychiatric Centre Gentofte. The notes, which vary in length, concentration and clarity, are written on a mobile phone from Jacobsen's hospitalisation to his discharge. They were addressed and sent to the friend and colleague, the poet Claus Handberg.

The book is closely linked to chapter IV in the exhibition The Ignorant Schoolmaster, where Jakob Jakobsen has worked with Centre for Art and Mental Health on the basis of a performative gesture that Jakob Jakobsen developed during his hospitalisation.
