Why Words Now : Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff
For this edition of Why Words Now presented on 30 November 2021, we welcomed artists Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff.
Everyone is someone and no one while they are here. That’s the point. Josef is a writer but since he does not write these days, it’s more accurate that he is, in fact, a bartender. He would fight you on that.
Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff will show their in-progress tv series Paradise while discussing fictions and alternatives within artist-run structures that reflect on performance, labor, language and collapse.
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.
