As part of the exhibition 27DAGE (27DAYS), f.eks. organizer Scott William Raby initiated a conversation with artist and researcher Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld (PhD) about her practice and recent projects, especially in the wake of the now famous artistic happening that took place at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 2020.  This dialogue serves as a point of departure to explore her artistic work and collaborative processes further in projects such as Archives that Matter, Voices in the Shadows of Monuments, Rematerializations, and her upcoming project with f.eks. in 2022.

The final of three “publishing moments” activating  f.eks.’s past, present, and upcoming public projects, this text concludes f.eks.’s “satellite office” at Art Hub Copenhagen, initially launched in February 2022.
