Replacement Models for the Artist Run Space – THE WINTER OFFICE



Replacement Models for the Artist Run Space
a proposal and an artist book by THE WINTER OFFICE
Antechamber Publishing House, 2014

For the Artist Run festival at Overgaden, Copenhagen in May 2014 THE WINTER OFFICE  proposed a conceptual work of art/architecture addressing their research and conceptual concerns regarding “artist run” spaces, use, and development – in the form of a publication. The publication presents a series of monochrome drawings as investigations of space, aiming to suggest a ”new” architecture for the artist run space.

THE WINTER OFFICE is an experimental work group with an interest in architecture, planning and social science research, coordinated by the American artist Hugo Hopping, the Danish architect and urban planner Johanna Ferrer Guldager, and the Italian architect Sara Armento.

Artist Run is an international festival, with more than fifteen local and international artist-run exhibition spaces. Each contribute with an exhibition and joint vernissage event at locations spread throughout Copenhagen.

For the Artist Run festival Antechamber invited THE WINTER OFFICE as a continuation of the online publishing experiment The Void; the first edition – spanning over a year – created by Hugo Hopping.
