This year fifteen current students studying the third year of their BA were selected to be taken to Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital.
This annual opportunity organised by Senior Lecturer, Harry Meadows, encompasses a variety of artist workshops and tours around the city before coming together to form an exhibition of new work at Kiosk7.
‘Kiosk7 is an artist run project space in Copenhagen run by AUB tutor Jason Dungan and artist Maria Zahle. We had an action packed few days: playing music, screen printing, visiting artists, exhibitions and performances.’ – Harry Meadows.
Students also explored the Christiania ‘Free Zone’, which is an area within the Capital that declared independence from the rest of Denmark in the 1960s.
‘citizens live by a communal code that embraces collective ownership and living by their own rules. These experiences informed an exhibition that opened at Kiosk7 on the 10th November’. – Harry Meadows.
These enriching trips and opportunities encourage students to think about their contextual interests outside of their own studio spaces, and facilitate inspiration and networking for later projects and/or opportunities.
Lucy Abbott, a student on the trip, said: ‘This trip was a really great opportunity and was very inspiring. I really enjoyed experimenting with sound, video and printing, as well as seeing Copenhagen. It has allowed me to consider how my artistic practice can be taken into new contexts.’
