Join us for an evening of action, soup, and meditations on political economy. On January 11, Art Hub Copenhagen presents a screening of Christopher Nolan's 2012 magnum opus The Dark Knight Rises as artist Ryan Cullen and a special guest comment and reflect on the becoming of a political subject, experiences with class antagonism, and Nolan's craft.

The event is in English and participation is free, but please take out a ticket here.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ryan Cullen (b. 1992) is an artist working in Brussels. In his work he examines new symbolic economies emerging from a peaking extractive capitalism and its resultant annihilations. These new economies are not necessarily financial in nature, they are symbolic markets which trade in futures and derivatives of paranoia, death, identity, love, anti-sociality, body parts, and a decaying century-old psychoanalytic concept of desire. Pulling from disparate historical, cultural, and material sources, Cullen’s practice centers around the production of images and objects which exhibit homologous elements of larger political and ideological structures. Through a process which often intersects painting and sculpture, the artist creates images which mirror western society’s tendencies toward auto-annihilation.
Cullen studied at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, and The Cooper Union, New York. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at:Michiel Simons Gallery, Amsterdam; Musée Boverie, Liège; Situations gallery, New York; The Meeting, New York; CLEARING, Brooklyn; Etablissement d’en Face, Brussels; Studio Picknick, Berlin; Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden; Portikus, Frankfurt am Main, among others.
AHC has entered a partnership with the Department of Culture, Youth and Media of Flanders, inviting one Flemish artist to join a residency in Copenhagen each year. Part of Artistic Production and Development.
The residency allows an exchange between the Danish and the Flemish art scene, including the development of a network and the possibility of further exchange between the Flemish artist in residence and the artists and curators already connected to AHC. In addition, the artist will be part of a program in Denmark, including visits to Danish art institutions and more.
