Reparationens Kunst: Sårbarhed, Arbejde og Lokale Knuder
The Art of Repair: Vulnerability, Labour and Local Entanglements
Anna Rieder & Signe Lynge (DK) / Byhaven & Terræn (DK) / Foreningen for Kunst og Mental Sundhed (DK) / Jakob Jakobsen & Hospital for Self Medication (DK) / Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld (DK) / Kristina Müntzing (SE) / Rasmus Brink Pedersen (DK) / Staying with the Struggle (DRC/DK) / Zeenath Hasan (SE)
Fabrikken for Kunst og Design (The Factory for Art and Design) has a history as the main laundry for hospital textiles for the Copenhagen health care sector. As part of the Sundholm area the laundry functioned as a labour camp for so-called ‘outsiders’: sex worksers, homeless citizens, those struggling with mental health issues and other who did not fit into society’s norms. This event departs from the local history of the factory. Through site specific art works, performance and conversations across disciplines and experiences, we explore the relationships between art, local politics, activism and vulnerability. What is the potential and the problems that accompany socially engaged art and art dealing with mental health? Which are the potential consequences of art projects - such as biennials like Alt_Cph - moving into local communities haunted by troubled histoires, trauma, inequality and precarity?
The event will be held in a mix of Danish and English.

PATTERNS IN RESISTANCE
Patterns in Resistance is the 2020 iteration of the art biennial Alt_Cph, hosted by Fabrikken for Kunst og Design. The biennial unfolds within messy knots between crafts and technologies, between privilege and histories of resistance, between care and community. Patterns in Resistance is curated by Laboratory for Aesthetics and Ecology
Alt_Cph is an independent biennial gathering selected institutional partners, artists and contemporary artist-run and alternative exhibition spaces across Europe. Each time, a new team curates the biennial and involves its audience in the pertinent questions of the present.
