SixtyEight Art Institute Copenhagen is excited to invite our audience to a three-day workshop organized by The BodyBuilding Project. Scheduled between November 11th and 13th, the members of the project will organize a participatory event/workshop in order to investigate and activate the notion of ‘emergent economies’ by focusing on questions of excess and waste in urban surroundings. (read more)

Workshop Schedule:
11 November, Friday from 17.00 to 20.00
12 November, Saturday from 11.00 to 17.00
13 November, Sunday from 14.00 to 16.00

On the first workshop, Friday November 11th, the group will introduce the topic with the help of preliminary exercises and shared discussions. Saturday November 12th will be dedicated to a practice session that moves through various locations in central Copenhagen; during the session, the participants will develop ways of noticing and taking part in the emergent economies at play on these sites. On Sunday the 13th, their findings will be shared with the public in the form of a two-hour discussion held at SixtyEight Art Institute.

The event is open to anyone and does not require any prior knowledge or a background of a certain kind. However, the participants are expected to commit to the event for the first two days; participation in the public discussion is voluntary.

Place: SixtyEight Art Institute
Valkendorfsgade 11, 1151 Kbh K., Denmark

Fabian Hammerl Shanghai Lectures

In April 2016 Fabian Hammerl was invited to hold two lectures and a workshop at the Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts and the Shanghai Art & Design Academy, China. In his talk “Identity in public urban space – from a photographer’s perspective“ he described how urban space is formed by conflicting individual desires and practical needs creating an ever-changing spatial identity, and how this identity can be depicted, by example of his own photographic work. The second lecture’s title, “Let the picture take care of itself!“, a slightly altered quote by photographer Garry Winogrand, calling to put aside forejudgement in creative processes, is encouraging the students to embrace chance and unforeseen encounter, while the photographic workshop took them on a Dérive-inspired trip based on purposefully transposed maps of their habitual environment, celebrating failure as a starting point for artistic exploration.
