Alt_Cph 2016 CROSSCUTS
In 2016 Copenhagen's alternative art fair Alt_Cph focus on hybrid forms of organization within the artist-run field. Bringing together artist-run platforms from around the globe Alt_Cph16 presents a conglomerate of initiatives that shape – and are shaped by – their social and cultural context, crosscutting with existing structures and everyday systems. The participating platforms are characterized by their flexible forms with which they utilize art's ability to intersect with society and it’s communities. They share an agenda of challenging own practice, the art scene as well as society in general. Alt_Cph 16 unfolds as an open 'production space’ by inviting all participants to transfer their everyday practice to the factory, making it meaningful by opening up and engaging the local environment and its inhabitants. The main objective using this approach is to examine and incorporate the potential of the different methods and strategies within a local Danish context.
In general, Alt_Cph 16 stands out by engaging in a dynamic and open dialogue with its surrounding space – crosscutting between artistic disciplines, spaces and communities. As a special feature, all residents in the nearby community will have free entrance to the fair.
September 2nd to 4th 2016 at The Factory for Art and Design, Copenhagen.
Alt_Cph 16 is curated by Charlotte Bagger Brandt and Amalie Frederiksen from raaderum. The principal objective of raaderum is to create new opportunities for contemporary art. Working across the boundaries of established genres, knowledge platforms and institutions we shape alternative constellations and develop new formats within the contemporary, global art scene.
