Arctic Culture Lab
Arctic Culture Lab is a multidisciplinary platform for artistic research that reacts on the international vibrancy of the North and unites artists, curators, cross border specialists, geopolitical experts, as well as producers.
ACL strives for the goal to facilitate a knowledge exchange between residency artists and local knowledge bearers. During a 2 to 3 month stay they support, inform and motivate artists to reflect on the vulnerability of the Arctic coastal culture as an initial aspect for artistic research. The program is open to international artists and curators who are looking for a different narrative of the Arctic and Greenland, other than predominantly presented in media.
ACL is interested in artistic processes, experimentation and fearless curiosity in respectful interaction with the local community. The residency gives visitors an unique opportunity to discover Greenlands cultural and sociopolitical context. ACL expects their residency guests to be aware of research methologies related to indigenous peoples and to accept the expectation of a reciprocal approach. Through this, artists and curators can expand the scope of their practice and learn about the under-communicated Greenlandic art scene.
Any form of knowledge exchange is welcome.
