November edition of SMK Fridays

SMK Fridays returns as the stunning museum extends its opening hours for a diverse night of art, music, film, poetry, talks and a street kitchen. The evening’s theme is ‘things’ and centres around artist Haim Steinbach’s new exhibition, The Window. Four short talks will take place and there will be documentary screenings, along with street food prepared by chef Bernard Chesneau and his rolling kitchen – and plenty of beer and wine to make it the perfect art-filled Friday.

The Artificial Nature Project
Brace yourselves for a highly unpredictable and exciting performance as artists breathe life into the inanimate by throwing materials around the room. Mette Ingvartsen brings us her fourth experimental piece exploring the relationship between the living and lifeless as dancers compose “a body that is no longer made of human flesh, but rather of a floating, flying mass”. Things are bound to get messy as calm contemplative scenes turn into manic chaos.

  • Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements.
