Interesting to see how the Juxtapose Art Fair, a Danish-international biennial for artist-run exhibition spaces and other independent projects brings together different DAI generations and positions: our incoming student Foad Alijani (DAI, 2025) from Iran is invited to participate with his curatorial platform, Paadmaan projects, which, in collaboration with Denmark's Signe Vad, invites to a picnic that takes life with the difficult climate issues of the time. Concurrently Vita Buivid ( DAI, 2020) and "with the rubbles of old palaces" from Berlin, whose director is Hannah O'Flynn (DAI, 2020) present The Critical Drinking Curriculum, which takes the form of a series of public events that look at alcohol as a political substance, as well a place of intersection for the relationship between the body and the State. If you happen to be in Denmark, join these and many other initiatives on 1, 2 or 3 September 2023.
As many as 27 Danish and international exhibitors from 13 different countries can be experienced this year in Godsbanens Rå Hal. All represent artist-run or self-organized exhibition venues, with contributions from places as diverse as the Netherlands, the United States, Morocco and Iran.
Ten satellite exhibitions are also distributed throughout the city of Aarhus, and give an insight into the diversity of the city's own, dynamic art scene.
"It is a great pleasure to be able to present Juxtapose Art Fair's events, which shows the enormous range of voices and forms of expression that the artist-run exhibition venues deal with", says Sasha Rose Richter. She, Pamela Grombacher, Cecilie Bernts and Jacob Juhl are the initiators behind the biennale.
