The exhibition TRANSIT focuses attention on travelers' different experiences, terms and conditions in our present-day world of mobility, migration and globalization.
TRANSIT will be realised as an exhibition at KØS, and will also involve a range of new art projects that respond directly to their sites, whether at the Copenhagen Central Station or selected stations on the E line from Copenhagen to Køge. The audience will encounter the art projects just as they, as travelers themselves, are situated in transit.
Runo Lagomarsino presents Every day people follow signs pointing to some place which is not their home, 2018, a projected created specially for TRANSIT. The art project addresses and plays out in states of mobility, taking the form of a performance on the E line between Copenhagen Central Station and Køge Station.
Venues & dates: The E line from Copenhagen Central Station to Køge and KØS Museum of Art in Public Spaces. The performance is held at 3pm every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout the exhibition run.
SUPERFLEX presents Western Rampart a film work commissioned by KØS based on Vestvolden's (Western Ramparts) history as a fortress challenges our perception of borders and boundaries - whether natural or human built, through time.
Venues & Dates: Western Rampart will be on display at the newly build station bridge at Køge train station from September 13 to November 13 2018.
