Justseeds RESOURCED portfolio

Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 26 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly-minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods.

Justseeds members, Shaun Slifer and Mary Tremonte, will be in Copenhagen to present the Justseeds’s RESOURCED portfolio. RESOURCED was created and organized in 2010 to raise awareness on the global climate crisis. Images and graphics in this portfolio focus on the excesses of current systems of energy production, decline of natural resources, and, of course, climate change. The RESOURCED portfolio is a teaching tool and a tool for starting dialogue around the current environmental movement.

RESOURCED will be open at YNKB 15 October kl. 18:00-21:00.
Shaun and Mary will present a talk about Justseeds starting at 19:00.

Voices from Ramallah

"Voices from Ramallah" is a photobook with an introduction and translation of the arabic writings. It is made by Andreas Willemoes Thomsen and Sara Willemoes Thomsen.

The graffiti in the book "Voices from Ramallah" are primarily from Ramallah, the West Bank, Palestine. We have decided to focus on the writings and messages of the Palestinians themselves. By doing this, we exclude the graffiti made on the wall, built by the Israelis, since this graffiti is primarily made by visitors from the western world, who go to Palestine to express their sympathy with the cause of the Palestinians. We have decided to give voice to the local expression in Ramallah, whether it has been done to draw attention to their own existence or to a specific cause.

Science Fiction Laboratorium

Between the 10.04.11 and the 03.05.11 YNKB transforms into a Science fiction Laboratory. The Laboratory is a time span, a space, an interest.
3,5 weeks in a room in Nørrebro with a research on Science Fiction as a genre, An opportunity, an utopian weapon in the Queer Revolution? A crucible and a catalyst for progressive visual art? As a powerchanging language field? Or as a way to question everything around us, beneath us, above us and inside ourselves? An exceeding movement that will lead us … where?
I am not an expert. And I am not I. I hereby dissolve "I" and will with this text invite everyone who wants to join a "we" to participate in this experiment. To the extent and with the amount of time that we ourselves find convenient.
Every tuesday and thursday the Laboratory is open between 12pm to 12 am. At 8 pm There are film screenings.
More information at http://sciencefictionlaboratoriet.wordpress.com/.
If you are interested in contributing with your knowledge or participating in the submersion process please contact me on tinetvegaard@gmail.com or simply just show up at YNKB, Baldersgade 70, 2200 Kbh N.

Stories about "The New Society ", 1968-70....

An exhibition by Henrik Busk

At the opening Friday 7th, January 2011 at 4-8 pm we serve micro-macro food and chai
The exhibition is open Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9 from 12-4pm.
As a consequence of the student movement and the collapse of the Student Society, 500 students started the "New Society" in 1968.
In 1970, the activities of the "New Society" escalated into a big summer festival, not only for the 3 days that were normal at that time, but for 10 weeks!
The plan was to experiment with direct democracy in a newly established mini-society.
Henrik Busk has interviewed the most prominent people behind the "New Society" and created a number of video segments with stories about the times, the ideas and the experiences...
In the meetings with old activists, the project took another direction and the talks involved other issues than just stories from that time.
People visiting the exhibition will find themselves in the middle of the work of writing a chapter in the History of Danish Activism.
