Publications

In our efforts to give time, space and voice to artists and the artistic experiment Art Hub Copenhagen presents the three publication series Interview, Theory and Other.

The first publications initiated by Art Hub Copenhagen will be released in September 2022. They can be bought from the art store SKITSE.  All publications will be presented at this site.

~

The Interview series is based on conversations with artists who have been residents at Art Hub Copenhagen. Together with an interviewer and a guest, the artists present their work in words and images: not just one work or one show, but their current processes, thoughts, and daily challenges.
The Interview Series is in English.

Theory is based on philosopher Rosi Braidotti’s definition of theory as a form of organized estrangement from dominant values. The series will consist of titles relevant for the thinking of art and curatorial praxis today. Theory is primarily published in Danish.

The series Other is inconsistent through, and through because it never resembles itself and invariably has different content. The series unfold an artistic or curatorial project, or images, ideas, and reveries, and thereby remain – in all their otherness – themselves. Other can be published in both Danish and English.

All publications have been initiated by Art Hub Copenhagen and designed by Alexis Mark.

Interview

Adam Khalil

Art Hub Copenhagen Publications program Front cover for Adam Khalil

 

According to Comanche author Paul Chaat Smith, mainstream images of the “Indian” conjures “a half-remembered presence, both comforting and dangerous, lurking just below the surface.” In this interview, artist and filmmaker Adam Khalil lets the half-remembered presence out by engaging with themes ranging from the temporal double binds of Indigeneity, Christopher Columbus as the first vampire in the “New World,” and the public secret society New Red Order. Christian Lund talks to Khalil about his collaborative projects, and Naja Dyrendom Graugaard contributes with a poetic reflection on racial stereotyping in the Danish school system.

Kasper Hesselbjerg

Art Hub Copenhagen Publications program Front cover for Kasper Hesselbjerg

 

Kasper Hesselbjerg’s work is centered on three fundamentals: sculpture, text and last but not least food. In this publication, Hesselbjerg connects the dots between sculpture, collage, language, and the umami in his art. The artist Søren Andreasen joins the conversation to discuss their common passion and interest, China and Chinese thinking.

Steffen Jørgensen

Art Hub Copenhagen Publications program Front cover for Steffen Jørgensen

 

Steffen Jørgensen gets frank about his methods in painting and animation, and he touches base on conspiracy theory, the art world, cooking and is cornered in a discussion about pigs. Jørgensen’s collaborative partner Will Benedict, with whom he created the digital animation The Restaurant, joins the fray with several absurd questions. The interview was conducted as an email conversation during the summer of 2021.

Theory

Karan Barad

Art Hub Copenhagen Publications program Front cover for Karen Barad

Since the turn of the millennium, Karen Barad – feminist, philosopher, and particle physicist, has created a distinct and innovative contribution to contemporary thinking. On the occasion of Lea Porsager’s exhibition STRIPPED at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in 2021 they held an online lecture at Art Hub Copenhagen, in extension of which we now publish Natures Queer Performativity as the first Danish translation of their work. In the essay, Barad talks about queer ontologies and the ethical obligation towards non/humans, and argue that nature is fundamentally queer   in the most entangled and wonderfully perverse way. 

The publication is in Danish.

Alexandra Hunts

Art Hub Copenhagen Publications program Front cover for Alexandra Hunts

 

“Science is a tool to think with, just like art…” This publication contains transcriptions of conversations between the artist Alexandra Hunts and Charles M. Marcus, professor in Condensed Matter Physics at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Roland Barthes famously wrote: “Interdisciplinarity consists in creating a new object that belongs to no one.This epistemological homelessness echoes through both Hunts and Marcus’s immigrant condition, and the histories of 20thcentury art and science.

The publication is in English.
