ABOUT THE EVENT SERIES
The artists at Containerakademiet in Nordhavnen invites the public to participate in a series of ongoing events, based on questions and conversation that arises from contemporary artistic practice and its conditions. In 2024 the event-series is organized by Vibe Overgaard and Philipp Moritz Karweick who have put together a diverse program that addresses topics ranging from urban development to the archeology of ceramics. The series puts forward both lectures, workshops, presentation of art work, screenings, social events with food and drinks and much more.

The program intends to strengthen the professional and social conversation amongst artists with an open invitation for a broader public to participate. The event-series is supported by AHC.
