CPH PIX Festival
Going on since September the 9th, is the biggest film festival of Denmark. They have a 14 days program starring more than 150 recent films from all around the world. They are trying to add an extra layer to the festival by presenting artists talks, special events, concerts, seminars and theatrical performances. Bringing up mainstreams as well as niche movies, their aim is to open the movie scene in Copenhagen.
The festival will end the 11th of October. So grab your tickets and go explore the world’s movie scene while you still can!
The open space is now filled up with containers that are well roomed with art, design and culture. Behind this project sits DesignerSpace, a physical as well as online platform that already hosted several markets to promote newly established and upcoming designers, artists and creative entrepreneurs in Copenhagen.
The space opened the 6th of May and held many different events throughout the summer. The peak point is now over but nonetheless the space is still worth the detour. You can still browse through unique pop-up designer shops and showrooms with good food, coffee and rosé on the side!
The area will become a building site from 2018 so make sure to stop by before the 22nd of October, when Postbox will reach its end :).
is an independent institution whose ambition is to open an international centre for contemporary art in Copenhagen. Since June 2016, they have been given the opportunity to open a gallery in Papirøen with changing exhibitions from artists that awoken great interest around the world.
The premises are equipped with an evening wine bar, a design shop, and indoors as well as outdoors contemporary art exhibitions. The huge space of 3,400m2 is set up to allow large installations of art, sound and motion, sculptural landscapes, performance and monumental video art on many screens – technical and space demanding art displays.
They have brilliantly exposed the work of Yoko Ono and Pettersen & Hein so far and have 3 more exhibitions coming up next month.
Sadly this amazing establishment is reaching an end and will hold its last breath the 31st of December 2017. So make sure to check it out and catch its wonders before its too late! Trust us, it is worth the detour! ;)
