Bikuben Foundation's 2021 Vision Exhibition Award!

Copenhagen Contemporary wins the Bikuben Foundation's 2021 Vision Exhibition Award! 

Thanks to the Vision Award, CC's ambitious exhibition concept Yet, it moves!, made in collaboration with external curator Irene Campolmi, will be brought to life and will present ground-breaking art experiences centred on the theme of movement in both its exhibition space and locations in central Copenhagen.

Yet, it moves! is a visionary research project and public art exhibition that investigates the interconnected movements across scales from the micro to the macro cosmos. The award is accompanied by a generous gift of DKK 5 million, and CC can now begin to work towards the creation of the exhibition format of the future, bringing into play disciplines from the worlds of art and science and unfolding in a direct dialogue with the citizens of Copenhagen, as they move about the city every day.

From May to September 2023 it will be possible to encounter spectacular contemporary art at key locations in the city created by Ryoji Ikeda, Precious Okoyomon, Black Quantum Futurism, Jenna Sutela, Cecilia Bengolea, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, Nora Turato, Helene Nymann and others to be announced.

The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the four scientific research partners DARK, the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen; Arts at CERN in Geneva; the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University, and the Program in Performance Studies, University of California, Davis, ModLab (Digital Humanities Laboratory).
