Liveart.dk is behind COLAB: Conversation Kitchen consisting of six meetings between representatives from official Denmark and established artists from Africa and the Middle East.
In a study of the relationship between memory, identity, and performativity – on a personal as well as national level – the six artists will be staying a month at Danish institutions assisted by the Danish mentors. During four events held at Overgaden in April, May and June, you can gain insight into the artistic and human process and participate in the dialogue.
This afternoon offers a comprehensive introduction to COLAB project, where you can also meet the first team of collaborators: Christian Etongo (Cameron), Odun Orimolade (Nigeria) and Ato Malinda (Kenya) and their Danish partners Jessie Kleemann, performance artist associated with the Greenlandic House, Mette Garfield, journalist and editor at Theatre 1, and Peter van der Meijden, associate professor at the Department of Arts and cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen.
The following COLABs vil take place at Overgaden on April 30, May 24 and June 25. There will be free access to all events which will be in English.
COLAB Conversation Kitchens are the result of a collaboration between Liveart.dk and Portuguese artist and curator Marcio Carvalho. They are part of the IMAGES 2016 programme and are supported by the Danish Art Council and by CKU.
