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 the other way around. They work with art as process rather than product, and with collective participation in an attempt to make new realities. Alt_Cph 16 doesn’t consider the artist-run space as a stable form, but as a flexible hybrid, constantly shaping and being shaped by context. We want to introduce different fair format, investigating possible and impossible crosscuts between the system of art and everything else. A format that reflects reality, where art is not confined to concrete forms behind walls but overlaps with a range of spaces and zigzags between disciplines and methods.
Alt_Cph16 is curated by Charlotte Bagger Brandt and Amalie Frederiksen from Raaderum.
