A crucial focus for Art Hub Copenhagen is to increase the prospects and perspectives of the emerging contemporary art scene. Art Hub Copenhagen exists first and foremost to support young, emerging visual artists in their art practice, and to support the creation of international interdisciplinary networks and horizons. Central to this is our different residency programs, which together with our other program tracks provides collaborating artists, curators and other art practitioners with a professional platform for artistic development, production, sparring, networking and communication.
One of Art Hub Copenhagen’s focus areas is practice-based research.
AHC is a host institution for researching artists, curators, and writers. The work of our researchersparticipants constitutes an important part of our program, and we offer possibilities for developing new projects and methods through different formats. In terms of methodology, we emphasise process, interdisciplinarity, collaboration, and mediation.
The output of practice-based research at AHC is continuously presented in various programs such as Testing Ground and Guilt and Debts, as well as through our publications and micro institute.
We understand practice-based research to be a framework for artistic thinking and immersion that opens up to both an experimental knowledge production and a discussion of the contemporary preconditions for making art and being an artist.
Engaged in a dialogue with other institutional actors, AHC is fully committed to developing the field of practice-based research.
