Recipe for a Meeting

This Thursday, December 17th at 9:30 we would like to invite you
to watch Recipe for a Meeting, a TV-TV program produced by YNKB
in collaboration with Kajsa Dahlberg and Ilya Lipkin. The program will
air on Kanal Hovedstaden. There will also be dinner and a second
screening of the program at 18:00 Friday, December 18th in YNKB.

Conceived as a response to the COP15 summit in København, we see
this program as the record of an experiment in collective subjectivity.
Working with footage of the city, a demonstration, bodies in space, cooking
and a shadow play, we attempt to think through an alternate vision of the images
surrounding this event. Together, we intervene into the climate of spectacle that
the summit has produced in order to ask the question of what a different conception
of politics and subjectivity could look like.
YNKB is located at Baldersgade 70 st tv, 2200 København N
Everyone is welcome.

Book reception: Let’s Re-make the World

This book is a collection of documentation and writing around exhibitions and seminars
that took place over several years and one ocean. It represents collaboration between
the organizers, Ydre Nørrebro Kultur Bureau (YNKB) and The Library of Radiant
Optimism for Let’s Re-make the World (Brett Bloom + Bonnie Fortune), and the
participants at those exhibitions and seminars. It represents ideas bubbling up
and then fading or conversely, gaining traction and sustainability among a dispersed
group of practitioners. It represents a beginning.

The studio of Astrid Noack in Rådmandsgade

Astrid Noack was one of the most important Danish sculptors of the twentieth century.
She lived and worked from 1936 to 1950 in a back building to Rådmandsgade 34,
a former stable. Here some of her most famous sculpturs were created.
The art historian Hanne Pedersen, who just published the book: ”Stærkere end livet”
will give a lecture on the library of Nørrebro on Astrid Noack, her work and life in
Rådmandsgade on Thursday the 26th of February.
The studio of Astrid Noack is still there. What is going to happen with these old buildings
worthy of preservation in a unique backyard millieu? Can we create a cultural memorial for
Astrid Noack on the site? Perhaps with cultural activities for children?
The lecture is arranged by YNKB and supported by Områdefornyelsen i Mimersgadekvarteret

Magazine Launch

A key task of this journal is to introduce the market ‘failure’ of a capitalist economy
– the repressive destructive nature of a system that works for the few at the expense
of the many – into the comfortable discussions on how universities might best suit
the interests of the labour market; or how everyone might best become a professional
member of the creative middle class. This debate must be set against the economic
and political reality of massive debt, price hikes, wage decreases, and the general
squeeze on labour, within the context of what can only be described as capitalism’s
ongoing and permanent state of crisis.
Sophie Schasiepen from the Rosa Kerosene group, who published “The Economy has left The Building”
came to YNKB to introduce the Magazine.

YNKB Window

It all started when we hung up a t-shirt in the window with the text: Boycot Israel,
as a reacion to the massacre in Gaza. The day after we recieved a mail saying
this was a vulgar and undifferentiated attitude. We answered the mail and the
exhibition in the window was extended with posters of Palestinian artists, critical articles and other stuff.
