Works + Words 2019
Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 51

2nd Biennale for Artistic Research in Architecture at KADK. WORKS+WORDS 2019 presents contemporary European artistic research in architecture produced between 2015 and 2019.
Artistic research develops new ground within the field of architecture and combines the making of works with reflections in words.
The sustainable development goals set by the UN in 2015 form the current conceptual framework at KADK. The biennale relates to the UN Sustainable Development Goals that form the current conceptual framework at KADK. It aims to demonstrate how artistic research covers a diverse field from exploratory to realised projects. This includes open-ended explorations and works aimed at societal impacts.
The biennale includes both primary researches, the outcome of which is by definition unpredictable, and realised projects that address crucial issues in society. In this way, it demonstrates how the entirety of the field is necessary to produce sustainable answers to current challenges.
The exhibitors are selected from submissions to an open call addressed to architecture schools in Europe. In addition to the selected works, the biennale has invited a carefully selected number of eminent architectural practices to show their work, for inspiration and to further the dialogue between experimental practice and research.
The biennale is kindly supported by The Dreyer Foundation.
Opening Thursday 28 November at 17-19.
Opening speach by Jakob Brandtberg, Head of School of Architecture.
