The exhibition SuperSub – on collectivism is part of the annual culture event IMAGES – a collaboration between Center for Kulturel Udvikling (CKU) and several Danish cultural institutions. The goal with the exhibition at Den Frie is to make an exchange of experience between Den Frie and non-Western artists, curators, and institutions, as an alternative to the traditional view on art in Denmark. Den Frie welcomes an institutional context and artistic platform that expands and challenges an “international” (read: Western) view by presenting a “global” point of view. Therefore the artist and curator Ade Darmawan from Indonesia has been invited to curate the exhibition for which he has selected five artists, who are all involved with collective art practises. With this overall concept around experience and cultural exchange between a number of Copenhagen based artist groups, curators, and non-Western institutions, it is our wish to raise the questions: What does it mean to work collectively today? What lies hidden in the community and in the collective culture production?
The participating artists are: Reza Afisina, Mg Pringgotono, Mahardika Yudha, Arief Yudi, Andreas Siagian and Farid Rakun.
