SixtyEight Art Institute is organizing the second edition of The Artistic & Curatorial Thing: a free-of-charge intensive summer programme modelled as a series of workshops and lectures, which will focus on the various dimensions behind exhibition-making and artistic and curatorial research methodologies.
The team behind EC1 24H Copenhagen met at the first edition of The Curatorial Thing last year and a few weeks after we started working on our exhibition project – so the only thing we can say is that the programme is highly recommended!
The Artistic & Curatorial Thing will take place on August 28th-31st in Copenhagen and the deadline for applying is July 15th.

The third edition of Aarhus Artspace starts today and runs throughout July 28 Presenting one new show each day, Aarhus Artspace is like a ‘big sister’ to EC1 24H Copenhagen, which is based on the same principle. Both Aarhus Artspace and EC1 24H Copenhagen are organized by FSK – Foreningen for samtidskunst.

During EC1 24H we met a lot of great people visiting our shows. One of them is Brandon Schell who recently broadcasted Contemporary Culture CPH, a new podcast dedicated to Copenhagen art scene.
In episode 001 he speaks with Runa Norheim, artist of Day 2 in our program, and Julie Jane Nissen, one of the curators behind EC1 24H Copenhagen and co-founder of FSK – Foreningen for Samtidskunst. Give it a listen!
Thanks for the interest in our project, Contemporary Culture CPH – we look forward to following you!

EC1 24H Copenhagen 2018 is fast approaching and we cannot hide that we are very excited! We have been working on this “kamikaze project” (as someone has described it) since September 2017 and feel ready for take-off!
EC1 24H is structured as 22 shows happening in 22 days from April 15th to May 6th, meaning that each day is presenting a new show. Everything will be located in the newly opened artspace Lokale near Folkets Park, the heart of Nørrebro, Copenhagen, and it will see the participation of more than 30 artists and curators from 10 countries.
The project wants to challange and play with how we produce, present and meet contemporary art. It specially wants to highlight the transformative energy that comes with the artistic process but is very often hidden behind the scenes.
Statens Museum for Kunst must have seen a potential in this concept, because on February 9th, 2018 we were invited to give a preview of the project during SMK Friday “Art in the Making”. It was a really good try out, both for us to fine-tune our concept and for the audience to get a taste of what’s gonna happen.
In order to finance the project, we’ve been challenged by the sometimes cruel gamble of funding, as many other artistic and cultural projects. Now, thanks to the help of many local sponsors, friends and partners, and of the dedicated artists and curators that accepted to work with no budget, EC1 24H is about to happen!
We believe that EC1 24H is contributing in showing and making art in ways, that will generate debates and new perspectives on art as the life around it. If you agree – you are more than welcome to support the project.
You can do this by joining the association that is at the inniative of the project: FSK – Foreningen for Samtidskunst (The Association of Contemporary Art).
FSK is a young association devoted to create and develop contemporary art through experimental projects and exhibitions in and outside the institution.
FSK is build on optimism, passion, co-creation and curiosity and is carried on by the people who engage with the association and the projects we create together.
By paying a yearly fee of 73 DKK, you can become a member of FSK. With your membership you support an association that works for contemporary art, while the association supports you. The more members we are, the more we can play!
Pay 73 DKK via mobilepay: 90888
The money that will be raised from today to the end of EC1 24H, will be used to cover the expenses of the project.

See you from April 15th!
Read the interview with Sidsel Lehn Mehlsen, one of the artists of EC1 24H, on Af-Art Magazine. Danish only.
“If people are provoked by my art, it’s their own problem. What I want to do is to draw positive attention to some issues that are simply not discussed well enough.”
Zuhra Hilal, one of the artists of EC1 24H, explores the female body and sexuality in her works. She has talked to Blacklisted about the importance of this and about being an artist with a background in fashion.

During the evening the artworks and performances will develop in relation to each other, making it possible to the audience to witness the act of creating in its develeopment.
