Swopshop in December 2003 with different Workshops: Bookworkshop
November 27– 30, 2003
A workshop arranged by YNKB with Danish and international artists/art groups. The theme for the workshop: Possibilities and experiences in working with spaces for alternative culture outside institutions with local environments and local actors/audiences. YNKB, which is a locally based artist initiative in Outer Nørrebro in Copenhagen, wishes to relocate artistic activities to the local environment – that is, to use inspiration from the relationships among people in Outer Nørrebro in initiating activities that involve the local environment. At the same time, YNKB wants to connect the local with the global by developing a network of Danish and internationally based artists who work on the basis of related premises so that together they can develop a common base of experience that can create mutual inspiration and develop models that create openness in the debate about the local. The artists/art groups participating in the workshop were: Brett Bloom from In the Field, Mess Hall and Temporary Services (USA); Øyvind Renberg from Danger Museum (Tokyo, Oslo, Singapore); Sarah Lewison (London, USA); Christel Lundberg from Public Globality Garden (Malmö, Sverige); Christiana de Melo (Brazil, London); Keith Pirlot (USA); from Copenhagen: Tarje Gullaksen (Norge, Denmark); Nynne Haugaard, Nikolaj Kilsmark, Katja Løgstrup-Hansen, N55; Nis Rømer; and from YNKB in Copenhagen: Finn Thybo Andersen, Kirsten Dufour and Gillion Grantsaan (Holland, Surinam, Denmark). The title Art Freight refers to YNKB’s vision of an art and culture centre to be located in The Warehouse in Outer Nørrebro. The building’s location, history and architecture have inspired the idea of creating an alternative centre for art and culture as well as an awareness of its potential significance in developing a local area as an integrated part of modern city planning.
