Around 130,000 people attend the festival, which is run by a non-profit organization.

The Space In-Between ft. Mathias & Mathias (#118)

We are back again today with another super interesting talk, with the artist group Mathias & Mathias. They had a show up at Overgaden a little while back, and we were fortunate enough to have the chance to sit down and talk to them. It was a great conversation, touching on many topics, with a lot of behind the scenes talk, which is always interesting. It’s good to hear from working artists what…

Revisit Practice ft. Seimi Nørregaard (#92)

Well just like that we have reached the final episode of the year. I just had a great talk with Seimi Nørregaard, an artist who I was not previously acquainted with but who I’m certainly glad to now know. I wanted to release this one right away because she currently has a show up at Overgaden, which will be up until the 8th of Jan. So how about some art over the vacation huh? She is a hard artist to pin down, and we certainly talk about that, but she comes from a...

Part of The World ft. Rune Bosse (#69)

Today we have a dose of calm energy and thoughtfulness by the name of Rune Bosse to combat whatever crazy is nipping at your heels. His practice often manifests installations or is performative, and usually with an eye to nature, and it's beautiful work. We only recently saw it for the first time, but it immediately struck us in some of the same ways that Felix Gonzales-Torres' work does...

First Time ft. Vinyl, Terror & Horror (#62)

The installation & sound artist duo Vinyl, Terror & Horror are making some of the most atmospheric and plain old outer-limits works right now. They came to our attention based off of their stellar installation at Gether Contemporary in the spring, called Tanz Mal Wieder. Their works are tough to describe, but such a pleasure to experience. They cut up and fuse together record players, vinyl and all sorts of...
