work work work
Exhibition period: Aug 25 – Dec 8 2018
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.
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.
