Exhibition „Exchanging Money for Working Space or Money Equals Working Space“
Our Alumna Valentina Karga will be part of the exhibition „Exchanging Money for Working Space or Money Equals Working Space“ at SixtyEight Art Institute in Copenhagen opening 10 March:
The exhibition borrows its title from an artwork by Danish conceptual artist Stig Brøgger, who in 1971 conceptualized the artist as a free agent liberated from norms and conventional frames of labour and finance. Based on this piece, the exhibition aims to question value-creation both within art and the broader contexts given in contemporary financialization.
Valentina Karga and Pieterjan Grandry are presenting their collaborative project Market For Immaterial Value, - an investigation on creating, validating and disseminating art in the era of immaterial economy. Art cannot be oblivious to its own conditions of creation and exchange. Valentina and Pieter, two young artists, are looking over a capitalist horizon and share their findings, reflections, ideas, personal utopias and fears of dystopias. What is the role of the artist in a financialized (art)world? They create spaces, online and offline, to research through discussions, which they consider to be collaborations.
