    Barricade Ballet”

    Out door barricade training and participatory performance with inflatable bricks

In 2016 Copenhagen's alternative art fair Alt_Cph will gather platforms and initiatives working beyond the scope of the conventional artist-run space. The invited participants share an artistic practice that is crosscutting with everyday systems and structures, making them products of their surroundings, and vice versa. They work with art as process rather than product, and with collective participation as a driving force in an ongoing attempt to make new realities.

Alt_Cph 16 doesn’t consider the artist-run space as a stable form, but as a flexible hybrid, which is constantly shaping and being shaped by its context. The Factory of Art and Design, where the fair has been held every year since 2006, is a production and knowledge centre, where 53 artists produce art on a daily basis. Being given the opportunity to curate Alt_Cph 16 Raaderum has chosen to take this site- specific situation literally and also very seriously. We want to introduce a different fair format, investigating possible and impossible crosscuts between space, production and knowledge. A format that reflects reality, where contemporary art is not confined to concrete forms insides closed cubes but overlaps with a diverse range of spaces and zigzags between disciplines and methods. Therefore we encourage the invited participants to 'reproduce' rather than 'represent' their space and their practice. Detached from their usual environment, we don’t expect these reproductions to generate major changes, necessarily. By contrast, we expect a conglomerate of constantly changing forms crosscutting with each other to give a taste and a glimpse of contemporary art's ability to create all sorts of intersections. In line with this approach we will break down the walls of the production house to let fair and the space intervene with the local context around the Factory, Sundholmskvarteret. 

Alt_Cph16 is curated by Charlotte Bagger Brandt and Amalie Frederiksen from Raaderum. Since 2008 Raaderum has worked across spaces and challenged conventional formats for contemporary art. We prefer to work with open processes and flexible forms rather than done products. An important aspect of our work is to highlight the potential of art in various social contexts.

Alt_Cph 16 Crossscuts takes place September 2-4 2016 at The Factory of Art & Design.

About Trampoline House

Trampoline House: Copenhagen Refugee Community was formed in 2010 as an independent community center in Copenhagen that provides refugees and asylum seekers in Denmark with a place of support, community, and purpose. The house offers different classes and activities with the aim of breaking the social isolation and sense of powerlessness that many refugees and asylum seekers experience. Trampoline House aims at bringing together asylum seekers and Danish citizens to improve the conditions for asylum seekers and refugees. Everybody contributes to the daily life of Trampoline House – both asylum seekers and locals – with activities such as legal counseling, language classes, cooking, cleaning, child care, creative workshops, debates, public campaigns. Like a trampoline, the house is a space for refugees and asylum seekers to recharge and gather the energy and support needed to jump-start a better life, and for the Danish public to get motivated to reform the current refugee and asylum system.

Sigrids Stue, Aarhus with PASAJ, Istanbul

Project

The project is a collaborative work between Sigrids Stue and PASAJ based on a friendship going back to 2010. Secil Yaylali and Giorgio Caione from PASAJ team will be living and working in Gellerup for 6 weeks in collaboration with Grete Aagaard from Sigrids Stue and a local advisory group. During the residency they would like to point out the visual identity of Gellerup. As a neighbourhood, Gellerup is formed by residents with a variety of cultural and ethnic background. Secil and Giorgio are interested in investigating the visual symbols which define these identities. Exploring the visual semiotics of this specific local area will give clues about the aesthetics of Gellerup. Based on this research, the artists invite interested residents from the area to participate in a joint activity, where the residents will transform the symbols into new 2 and 3 dimensional elements and create a new hybrid of symbols to be placed in Gellerup. At Alt_Cph16 Crosscuts the project will work as an installation placed outside Fabrikken - in the local neighbourhood. Here they will invite residents, Alt_Cph participants and passers-by to rework the Gellerup-symbols in new colourful combinations to re-create the space.

About Sigrids Stue

Sigrids Stue, opened in august 2011, is a space for contemporary art in Gellerup, Aarhus. Sigrids Stue brings the professional art out of the established institutional settings, to engage in direct and close collaboration with local residents, and create innovative partnerships between local area residents and the professional arts. Sigrid Stue makes art projects wiith Danish artists, and they invite international artists in residency. The artists create community-based art projects in collaboration with the residents. Sigrid's Space is also working to create a network of local artists, which can help to provide the artistic environment in Gellerup with better opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration and advancement.

Utopia School, NY

Project

During Alt_Cph16 Crosscuts Utopia School will host different classes and workshops. Dictionary of the Present: A Dictionary Writing Group examines meaning and contexts of words. The dictionary can provide space for developing conflicting perspectives by problematizing usages to wring out the nuances and implications from terms. Listening is a class about listening. The Listening class will serve as the first part of English Conversation class. Architecture of Desire discusses how we might change the rules of architecture without throwing away its productive aspects. Can we imagine an architecture that increases liberty, propagates communalism, stokes mutual aid, and embraces interdependence?

About Utopia School

Utopia School is an ongoing, nomadic learning project that shares information about both failed and successful utopian projects and works to establish new ones. Utopia School defines utopias as spaces and initiatives that re-imagine the world in some crucial way. The school engages and connects people through conversations and workshops with the goal of exploring, archiving and distributing collective knowledge. Utopia School's topics of study include physical places, relationship dynamics, systems of organizing, political contexts, common roadblocks, and the methods used to create and sustain these projects. Anyone can get involved in any class, anyone can ask questions, discuss ideas, or help plan the class.

Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen, Bratislava & Linares

Project

“Strategies to minimize the error” - Dumpster-diving tactical action planning for a citizen hacker is a collective and intergenerational practice of social production and reproduction. With the project Martinka Bobrikova and Oscar de Carmen are making a recipe for dumpster-diving. In the recipe they will describe all necessary steps one needs to know to locate the food surplus commonly found in the containers of the supermarkets. The recipe is intended to function as a tool to develop a work beyond the institutions. The idea is to develop a recipe by the citizens for themselves intended to produce new strategies of collaborative consumption open to economic sustainability. To carry out the recipe, citizens who already recycle and dumpster-dive in the city of Copenhagen will participate in the process in the weeks before Alt_Cph. Martinka and Oscar will develop a series of activities related to the conservation and degustation of the surpluses, and raise the use of the assigned space at The Factory of Art and Design during their stay as an open social space, where they will develop the work of collaboration with the community through neighborhood activities. 

About Martinka Bobrikova and Oscar de Carmen

Martinka Bobrikova & Oscar de Carmen has worked together as an artist duo since 2005. Their practice, which is often community based, aims at setting up new social ecosystems. By revolving around the mechanisms and context by which power creates systems of value, they seek to intervene on the border between art and current topics of contemporary life in order to bring about the proposition of the transitory and the utopian. Through the ongoing series of gastronomic events as the common thread they are working with social interventions — that are at the same time a critical practice — operating via social research, site-specific installations and a series of social events and dialogues triggered by conviviality. They investigate our rooted social acts and habits, and question if we could act otherwise in social waysTheir goal is to create a platform where each participant can experience and live inside this social ecosystem we have created outside the consumeristic world, offering them services for free. A new economy is proposed and made tangible, and the negotiation and social rituals revolving around food are given a face that speaks the language of gift, respect and responsibility.

Wooloo, Cph

Project

HUMAN HOTEL began as a practical solution for the activist community during the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen in 2009.

At Alt_Cph16 Crosscuts HUMAN HOTEL has provided accomodation for the participating artists.

About Wooloo

Wooloo is an artist group based in Amager, Copenhagen. The group was founded by Sixten Kai Nielsen, Martin Rosengaard, and Russell Ratshin.

Wooloo’s practice focuses on social and artistic experiments, and Wooloo creates social programs concerning collaborative participation. Like the online community, many of Wooloo's other works explore strategies in which several people take part in the art-making process. During the UN climate conference in 2009 in Copenhagen, Wooloo has arranged for 3,000 activists to stay in the homes of private families with the hospitality-program Human Hotel.

Tools for Action, Berlin

Project

Tools for Action is a community project using inflatable sculpture as a tool for interventions. During Alt_Cph, Tools for Action will set up a pop-up “Inflatable Factory” in which large inflatable cubes will be produced for the “barricade of the 21th century”: modular, soft, shiny building blocks that can be used for mobile blockades and playful street spectacles. The design method is consciously low tech, low budget and open source to make inflatable barricades easily reproduced. The inflatable barricade was first developed at the protest during the United Nation Climate Conference in Paris 2015 and then further developed during Tools for Action’s last intervention in Dortmund in June 2016 where participants tried to block a neo-Nazi march with students, teachers, activists and workers from the local theatre. For Alt-Cph, new choreographic formations will be tested for swarm-like crowd movements, which can become a tactical innovation in a demonstration context. This experiment can only work with many people participating in an engaged way. Please join Tools for Action for a session in the Inflatable Factory or at the Sunday "Barricade Ballet" action training!

 

About Tools for Action

Tools for Action is an art and activist group, initiated by Artúr van Balen. Since 2012, the group gives skillshare workshops in the manufacture of inflatable sculptures and how to use them for political actions.
