As part of the exhibition 27DAGE (27DAYS), f.eks. organizer Scott William Raby initiated a discussion with artist Lukas Heistinger about his artistic practice and upcoming work, particularly about his collaborative project on the “artist as consultant”.

The first in three “publishing moments” activating f.eks.’s past, present, and upcoming work, this initial text marks the occasion of the exhibition opening and the beginning of f.eks.’s month-long presence at Art Hub Copenhagen in February 2022.
