COPENHAGEN ULTRACONTEMPORARY BIENNALE

COPENHAGEN ULTRACONTEMPORARY BIENNALE is programed to take place in 2017 during a period of 5 weeks activating several art institutions, public space, a TV platform and other daily media. Parallelly there should be produced a daily on-line catalogue. The aim of COPENHAGEN ULTRACONTEMPORARY BIENNALE is to introduce internationally the ideas of ULTRACONTEMPORARY, EMERGENCY ART and ART FORMAT.

  • ULTRACONTEMPORARY (artistic ability to express in sync with time)
  • EMERGENCY ART (artistic ability to spot dysfunctions in the society before it is too late )
  • ART FORMAT (artistic framework based on a prescribed format that can be repeated and activated globally in different contexts.)

This new and unique biennial structure is developed in collaboration with Thierry Geoffroy / COLONEL and will stimulate flexibility and self-critique of what we today consider contemporary. Until 2017 there will be organized a line of conferences and research projects as well as visible recruiting initiatives on order to establish a solid working team, train artists and define the new category of ultracontemporary art. One of the preparative education initiatives is ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ART
