When Arts Gets Real – on media-based art in public space and non-space

November 30, 6pm
Rasmus Vestergaard
Introduction and moderation by Helena Barranha and Emília Tavares

What happens when the boundaries between art institution and reality are erased, and subsequently when the finite nature of the exhibition is replaced by an art-based process looking for new conditions and new ways of generating meaning? On the basis of this logic, might it be possible to create new artistic and curatorial models, that manifests art as an active force in society?
DIAS – Digital Interactive Art Space takes public, urban space or reality as its basis. Exhibitions, initiatives, and projects are presented 24/7 all year at Vallensbæk Station. The gallery has been abolished and art has moved into the realm of everyday life.
