Why Words Now : Henning Lundkvist
For the fifth edition of Why Words Now held on 11 May 2021, we welcomed artist and writer Henning Lundkvist:
Wowowowowowowowowowowowowords come too easy or not at all, nothing new there under the setting sun, and when we finally manage to squeeze through the compulsory kissing-on-the-cheeks in the hallway we’re lost for them, stranded as we are in the middle of an opening, surrounded by the crowd and the great unknown, unable to resist asking thoughtless questions about who and why and when and howowowowowowowowowowowowow.
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.
