POLEMIK
POLEMIK is Overgaden’s debate format which focuses on important questions on the art scene and puts them up for discussion together with invited guests. Among other issues, POLEMIK will in 2016 focus on the relationship between capital and province, the difference between physical and virtual art institutional visits, and raise the question about artists’ fees.

Overgaden LECTURES
In 2013, Overgaden initiated a new series of international conferences called Overgaden LECTURES which annually engages a current tendency on the international art scene in critical depth. In 2016, we will focus on Post Internet Art, raising questions about the characteristics and modes of practice connected with this hyped phenomenon.

 

Overgaden is Copenhagen’s innovative exhibition space for dansk and international contemporary art. With changing exhibitions and events such as artist talks, lectures, performances, and film screenings, Overgaden functions as a platform for the newest developments on the art scene and as forum for discussion and debate.
