Join us for the opening of this summer’s two solo exhibitions at O—Overgaden on Friday 10 June: An exhibition by Liesel Burisch on the magical potentials and spaces of the after party and Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed’s meditative drawings, 1:1 meetings, and intimate manuscript readings for groups of guests

To celebrate the exhibitions and kickstart the Art Week Copenhagen week, Fathoeburger and Don Jegosah, who are also part of the new videos by Liesel Burisch, will play live during the opening evening. At the opening, you can also join the reading of a new manuscript by Monia Sander Haj-Mohamed.

Fathoeburger is co-founder of the artist collective and record label One Mother as well as a curator of GLOBAL FEMINIST BAD(B)ASS at Kampnagel, which creates space for the feminist, queer, non-white, voices that are otherwise underrepresented.

The opening is a part of the Art Week 2022 programme
