inside and outside of YNKB.

from others whose identification is inextricable from a broader social
and political concerns that are affecting this identification. These
materials will include video and film work from the women's film and
video distribution Cinenova, which is based in London. The performance/presentation

of the Copenhagen Queer Festival.

Let's remake the world III
Seminar and Workshop
This is the third event in a series initiated by the Library of Radiant
Optimism (Brett Bloom + Bonnie Fortune) and YNKB, which started in
late 2006 with The Radiantly Optimistic Poster Show!exhibited at YNKB,
December 2006, and at Messhall, Chicago, June 2007. This exhibition
was followed by a seminar in Messhall: What We Know of Our Past -
What We Demand of Our Future, January 18-20, 2008.
We are inspired by the groundswell of optimistic and visionary activities
in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We are interested in this time
period and the massive counter-cultural movement it produced in the
face of international political and social turmoil. We find ourselves
in a similar global environment of unprecedented crises, and we are
wondering how we can make visible and cohesive the currently existing
activities. Is there potential to add to the optimistic histories
of past activism with our own movements? This project seeks to not
only create a discussion about the place of optimism in the face of
war, environmental devastation, and global capitalism, but to examine
how optimism can help fuel positive change in a realistic way.

Art after Work III: “How much did you pay
for this plot of land?"
5 pm: Folkekøkken
7 pm: Introduction to the exhibition: “How much did you pay
for this plot of land? Land Value in Ramallah and East Jerusalem..
By Oliver Clemens and Sabine Horlitz from An Arkhitektur, Berlin.
A one dunam (1000 square meters) plot of land in the center of Ramallah
costs up to $8 million; the same plot costs $300,000 in an upper-class
residential area; near the settlement of Psagot, by contrast, a one-dunam
plot costs only $30,000, while a dunam of land inside Zone C is available
for $3,000. Through such an analysis of land value, political conditions,
conflicts, social expectations and hopes all come to the fore.

Politics of silence
still of the film:" A World Apart Within 15 Minutes" by
Enas I. Muthaffar
The Politics of Silence is a screening program that showcases short
video works of 8 artists and filmmakers from Palestine. The videos
are projected throughout the night through the windows of YNKB in
Copenhagen during the months of November, December and January, the
darkest months during the year. The projections are open to the public
and can be seen by any passer by from the street. This is a program
that draws its strength solely from the image rather than the sound.
The projections are silent.
The program is curated by Larissa Sansour, Palestinian video artist,
