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.

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
