Copenhagen’s alternative art fair Alt_Cph will be curated by raaderum in 2016. Using the term crosscuts we link artist run platforms from very different parts of the world to be able to consider them in a helicopter perspective. Using this approach allow us to see them, not as alternatives to established systems, but rather as flexible forms that crosscut with existing structures and standards – as a critique or a way of survival.
Siding with selected Scandinavian initiatives Alt_Cph 16 will include artist run platforms from Jakarta, Kathmandu, Tbilisi and Dakar among others. At these localities independent forces manage to drive the art scene forward besides the absence of a structurally supporting art system.
Alt_Cph 16 will create a visual and discursive space to motivate a critically reflected conversation on the artist run platform in a broader perspective.
This year Alt_Cph connect to ART LAB and Copenhagen Art Week 16.
It takes place at The Factory of Art and Design the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of September 2016.
