This spring, when Covid-19 closed entire parts of our societies, access to culture and art products changed from one day to another. Shows got cancelled, home concerts suddenly appeared, and art works were exhibited online. New aspects of the culture and art scene unfolded, and still today five months later the fields are under construction.
On Wednesday, August 26, at 5pm, all of this will be addressed when Art Hub Copenhagen in connection with CHART invites for a conversation about art institutions post-Corona. Together with several of this country’s greatest cultural entrepreneurs and thinkers, Art Hub Copenhagen and CHART will discuss new visions, utopias, and ideas for the future of culture and art. How does the future look like, and how can we preserve the art scenes? What do we lose, and what do we gain? How can we maintain a sustainable economy and a healthy ecosystem, what is in a possible position to return, and what do we need to say a forever goodbye to? This conversation is going to be both very specific and low-practice, wild and visionary.
The panel consists of:
Mikkel Thorup, Intellectual Historian
Dina Vester Feilberg, Director of Den Frie Exhibition
Kaspar Colling Nielsen, Writer
Nanna Hjortenberg, Director of CHART
Mathias Kryger, Art Critic at Politiken
Tine Fischer, Director of CPH:DOX.
Moderator is journalist Lasse Lavrsen, who published daily Corona-news for Information during lockdown in Denmark.
The event is free but requires reservation. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A limited number of seats is available, offered on a first come, first served basis.
Please notice, the conversation will be in Danish.
ABOUT OFF PISTE
Art Hub is dedicated to creating new collaborations and bringing artists, curators, writers, researchers, companies, institutions and the general public together in encounters with contemporary art. This is a constant focus of our permanent program tracks, but also the one-off events we host in collaboration with external partners under the name Off Piste. What all Off Piste events have in common is the overriding ambition of broadening dialogue and debates on art practice.
