THE ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ART is the educational agency of COPENHAGEN ULTRACONTEMPORARY BIENNALE.
THE ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ART believes that artists have precious intuition and duty to express as soon as they spot dysfunctions in the society. They can send alarms in the form of artworks. This ability to be in time can be trained and educated.
Artist can even be in advance of the accidents. They have the capacity to spot and unveil what may be an issue tomorrow and have important implications for our future.
In order for these important artistic visions to reach a large attentive audience as fast as possible, what artist feel NOW has to be produced and made visible in real time – before it is too late.
This first edition of THE ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ART will be organized as 5 week intensive course for international students in Holbæk Kunsthøjskole. During this course we aim to give streaming and permanent inspiration to express in and about the NOW. Read more about the curriculum and registration
