Juxtapose Art Fair is a new gathering for the artist-run sector, featuring exhibitions, talks, tours, and a one-day conference. The fair will debut in Aarhus, Denmark in August 2021.

Behind the scenes, the initiatives participating in the fair will have many opportunities to meet and learn from other artists. We will consider […]

We work with events that revolves around inter-connectedness, either to nature, the world, the past, the future, and not least to each other. We want to create an experimental non profit environment for rethinking, we start by dealing with the grotesque, the absurd, the rejected, the elements of nature, the robots and death. We use art and poetic collaboration as a gateway to disturb our fossilized mindsets and awaken numb senses. In the beginning our base was an old stable in the omeat packing district in Copenhagen. This government-protected stable has essentially been preserved since the Industrial Revolution took place in Copenhagen when butchering and […]
