AHC expands it’s focus on film through new collaboration with CPH:DOX
For some time now, the work of Art Hub Copenhagen (AHC) has involved the medium of film, not only with the establishment of the Art Hub Film Club, residencies and film screenings, but also our presence on the jury of the Han Nefkens Foundation. This year, we are expanding that focus in a collaboration with CPH:DOX. AHC’s director Jacob Fabricius has curated two programmes for the festival, and one of our former residents has been selected for the New:Vision competition.
We are incredibly proud that Thuy-Han Nguyen-Chi has been nominated for her work Into the Violet Belly, which will be shown in a joint screening with works by Nour Ouayda and Jane Jin Kaisen, both of whom will have world premieres at the festival. If you would like to see the film and meet Nguyen-Chi, it will be screened at Cinemateket on 22 March where Nguyen-Chi will be present and subsequently at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
ASIA-FOCUSED FILM PROGRAMMES
Part of AHC’s work features exchange and collaboration with international organisations and institutions. One of them is the Han Nefkens Foundation, where Jacob Fabricius sits on a jury that awards an annual prize to an innovative Southeast Asian contemporary artist. In collaboration with CPH:DOX, Fabricius has curated a selection of films by three artists who in recent years have been awarded one of the Han Nefkens Foundations grants. He has also selected three films by the Korean contemporary artist Ayoung Kim, who for many years has been experimenting with posthuman themes.
The three artists selected for the Han Nefkens programme are Korakrit Arunanondchai, Timoteus Anggawan Kusno and Hwayeon Nam. The selected films will be screened twice during the festival. At the first screening on 20 March, there will also be an opportunity to meet Timoteus Anggawan Kusno in conversation with Jacob Fabricius.
The Ayoung Kim programme features a total of four films, which will also be screened twice during CPH:DOX. The renowned artist will attend the screening on 22 March, when she will be interviewed by Fabricius.
