Workshop: Arendse Krabbe
On November 11, 2020, artist Arendse Krabbe hosted a workshop at Art Hub.
Arendse Krabbe is a visual artist, working both with video, sound, performance, collective readings and listening sessions. For this Workshop event, Krabbe took the audience on a sound walk to Amager Fælled (Amager Common), where they in silence listened to the place and brought their experiences back to Art Hub to share and talk about them. At the end of the event, Krabbe guided them through a collective listening ceremony.
For the last few years Arendse Krabbe’s practice has evolved around listening to the voices of others and collectives. She is part of the radio collective The Bridge Radio, where people with and without citizenship collectively produce radio based on their connected experiences in the Danish asylum system.
Arendse Krabbe believes that listening is a tool to develop a sensibility which can create new and other collectives across ethnicity, species, systems, and borders. At Art Hubs Workshop you will gain a lived and bodily experience to Krabbe’s listening methods and take part in creating new collectives.
