At tænke med røven – en quiz for dumme og dovne børn (To think with your ass – a quiz for stupid and lazy children)

med Ulla Hvejsel

kl. 13-14

Arrangementet afholdes på:
Blågårdens Bibliotek
Blågårds Pl. 5
2200 København N

The event will be in Danish.

Alle ved, at hver generations børn er dummere og dovnere end den forrige. I denne performance for dumme børn og voksne forsøger vi at lære lidt om, hvad al den dumhed og dovenskab egentlig er for noget.

Hvis man er doven, så siges det, at man skal lette røven, og samtidig så er røven jo indbegrebet af dumhed. Hvis man vil vide noget om dumhed og dovenskab, er det derfor måske en god idé at spørge en røv til råds? Derfor vil billedkunstneren Ulla Hvejsel sætte sin røv på spil i en quiz om emnet.

Det vil hun gøre i et slags dukketeater, hvor hendes bare numse vil stille spørgsmål om dumhed og dovenskab, fra et ældgammelt kunstværk der hedder “Arbejde”. Det er malet for cirka 150 år siden af en engelsk maler, der hed Ford Madox Brown.

Quizzen kan sikkert bedst forstås af dumme og dovne børn, men det skal dog ikke afvises, at nogle voksne også er både dumme og dovne nok til at være med.

Varighed: 25 minutter / hvorefter børn og voksne og vindere og tabere kan få lov til at hver deres egen medalje i dumhed og dovenskab.

 

Exhibition

work work work

Exhibition period: Aug 25 – Dec 8 2018

Opening of the second phase: Oct 6 at 1-5 pm

work work work is a exhibition that is self-reflective and takes a look at artists and curators’ own circumstances as cultural producers. The art industry is known to be infected by expectations of free labor and a general lack of money. Are these conditions we can change and if so, how?

In the second phase of the exhibition works by artists Lise Skou and Suada Demirovic are included.

Lise Skou contributes with the installation Rewriting History, which takes its point of departure in the major work Wealth of a Nation (1776) by economist Adam Smith. The artist’s focus is on the lacking consideration of how unpaid work helps ensure wealth.

Suada Demirovic shows the video work Family Album 1952-1990, based on the artist’s own family history and, more specifically, her mother’s memories. This is a film about moving away in search for work but also about leaving your home country because you are unwanted.

work work work is not a static exhibition. It develops throughout the exhibition period as an organism that grows and evolves over time. The exhibition program focuses on the nature of precarity, on collective working methods and organisation, the value of work and the lack thereof. Throughout the exhibition period we will show art, performances, reading groups, workshops and seminars by / in collaboration with:

Suada Demirovic, Lise Skou, Centre for Precarious Lives, Ulla Hvejsel, Mia Isabel Edelgart, Deirdre Johanna Humphrys, Thea von der Maase, Ninna M. Poulsen, Joen Vedel, Thomas Bo Østergaard, Tine Tvergaard, Rasmus Brink Pedersen and more.

The exhibition is supported by: The Danish Arts Foundation and The City of Copenhagen.

SATELLIT

New collaboration between the artists’ association Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling and meter.

Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling has invited meter to select two artists participating in KE’s Autumn exhibition 2018. These artists are given the opportunity to participate in a satellite exhibition in 2019 that spans over the three project spaces: meter, LOKALE & OK Corral.

With a satellite exhibition, the art of the matter is to create coherence in spite of distance. For this specific exhibition we will search for similarities or clashes in the artworks submitted by the two artists – elements that can connect or collapse.
