“The talk will draw on Barbara’s experiences from three decades of work with scenario planning in organizations such as Shell, Singapore Airlines, World Business Council for Sustainable Development and Society for International Development in East Africa. She will give a brief history of how scenario work has been used to guide corporate strategic thinking and public dialogue at critical times in organisations and society.”
“The project investigates the production of imaginaries and scenarios of the future. With climate change rendering the future increasingly volatile, the project posits futurity as a crucial site of artistic engagement, one undertaken in constant dialogue with other fields. Set in the context of the water technology company Aquaporin, the project explores the parallel temporalities produced by artists, filmmakers, authors, scientists, corporations and non-governmental organizations.”
“Strata departs from an interest in the act of seeing as a process of construction, understood as an act that is always already imbued with desire. When seeing becomes manifest as technologies, technologies in turn generate new ways of seeing. Through a quasi-fictional photographic documentation of the factory, the exhibition seeks to warp the image of the site and the question of artistic agency within it. The tactics deployed are those of the kaleidoscopic, of delirium, rummaging, exhaustion and sleep.”
“Det centrale værk i installationen er filmen "Kunst i Saxo Bank: Et uformelt møde", der giver et indblik i, hvordan billedkunst anvendes i en moderne virksomhed. Saxo Bank huser en af landets største private samlinger med over 600 værker af primært danske samtidskunstnere. Ved at indrette arbejdspladsen med dristige værker søger man at inspirere og motivere medarbejderne til at tænke nye, modige tanker.”
"Life Without presents a new body of work by Michala Paludan. Using the many layers of industrial history inscribed in the building of Aquaporin as a point of departure, Paludan has created a potential scenography exploring notions of work past, present and future."
"The exhibition speculates on printed matter’s ability to shift the focus from origin to historical effect. Situated in the context of Aquaporin’s membrane coating technology – which immobilizes proteins onto a polymeric multilayer structure – Synthetics explores the interdependence of technology, semiotics and the human nervous system."
"In navigation, dead reckoning is the process of calculating one's position by estimating the direction and distance travelled from one’s known starting point, without reference to external observations. The further you get from your point of departure the more uncertain the measurements become."
"Primer’s first project, Self Passage, takes its title from the work of Rasmus Røhling, who we invited to develop a new body of work. In addition, we have curated a selection of works by artists Rachal Bradley, Vilhelm Hammershøi and Man Ray, science fiction author Peter Watts, and material by the global healthcare company Novo Nordisk and America’s space agency NASA."
