In 2021 Copenhagen Contemporary was awarded the biggest Scandinavian art prize, the Bikuben Foundation’s Vision Exhibition Award, for the winning project Yet, It Moves! – a visionary research project and public art exhibition that investigates interconnected movements across scales, from the micro- to the macrocosmos.
Yet, It Moves! will unfold through a series of decentralised art installations shown at different locations in Copenhagen from May to October 2023, creating opportunities for people to encounter contemporary art in new ways, as the art will live in the city interacting with people on a daily basis.
Copenhagen Contemporary is now searching for artists, architects, designers, curators, landscape architects or others who are in any way professionally engaged in art or architecture in the public space to send proposals for contributions under two calls: one to create a central platform / pavilion / meeting point in Copenhagen, and another more general call for talks, events, podcasts and performances.
The pavilion/platform project has a budget of 480,000 DKK (~65,000 EUR) split between artist fees and production fees. Other works will be programmed from within a global budget of 250,000 DKK.
The calls are open to artists whose research has investigated or is currently exploring themes related to the interface between art and science like the ones being researched in Yet, It Moves!
