ON WHY WORDS NOW
In partnership with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Sculpture, Art Hub brings international artists, critics, curators and art historians to Copenhagen to present their work and in different ways answer the question about what the role of the language is and can be in the space of the visual arts. Why Words Now is curated by artist and academy professor Simon Dybbroe Møller, and independent curator and PhD student at Aarhus University Helga Just Christoffersen. Why Words Now is generously supported by The Danish Art Foundation.
