May 16-18, 2024: we are excited to share with you this upcoming project of Hosting Lands ~ co-curated by the amazing Aziza Harmel (DAI, 2013) and with among other artists, the participation of equally amazing Harun Morrison (DAI, 2020) as well as former COOP tutor Yin Aiwen (2022-2023) ~ a three day gathering and exhibitionary moment Radical bridges ༄ Stories of the Sea on the ship Svartlöga anchored in a quay in Grenaa harbor. The program will weave together songs and stories, testimonies and traditions, anchored within the realm of the sea.  It will explore the sea as a culture, a (living) habitat, a landscape and a contested and deadly migratory territory. Participants are invited to think about how the sea and the boat offer spaces for repair and survival in the environmental and colonial ruins of the past and present.
