#1 Room for Improved Futures

In this coming year we look forward to presenting the project Tracing the Tracks.

The year 2020 is rum46's 25th anniversary as an exhibition space. For 25 years rum46 have been active on the Danish art scene by collaborative organizing and curating a number of international exhibition projects, workshops, talks, residencies, readings and publications. For our 2020 program we have chosen the name TRACING THE TRACKS 

 TRACING THE TRACKS takes it’s starting point in our archive of long-term exhibition projects. Here we find themes that we think are still relevant today - and therefore important to debate, comment on and reflect in a forward-looking perspective.

rum46s history and archive contains a long list of social and political engaged thematic exhibition projects where themes such as hospitality, solidarity, democracy, alternative economies, working conditions, how we communicate in public space and imagined futures have been on the agenda over the years.

To carry out TRACING THE TRACKS rum46 has invited curator Agnieszka Wolodzko PL to collaborate with us as our co-editor/curator. Together we re-invite artists and writers who have participated in some of our previous projects and new artists and writers to trace tracks from rum46s archive and history.

On the basis of a selection ofprevious projects, we are providing a thematic inspiration and historical guided framework for 25 invited artists and theoreticians who will provide us with text based works.

We will look back to move forward - into the new decade.

The first exhibition is inspired by the project “Room for Improved Futures” (2017-19)will includetext works by artists: Alevtina Kakhidze [UA], Jesper Dalgaard [DK], claus ejner [DK], Åfc / Århus Feminist Collective [DK] and a theoretician Vira Baldyniuk [UA].
