Carl Martin Faurby, Lakou Freelance



Visiting curator Carl Martin Faurby of Copenhagen discusses his project Lakou Freelance at the 2015 Ghetto Biennale, an exhibition with Haitian artists of the Atis Rezistans revolving around discussions on what it means to "curate" a freeform arts festival such as the Ghetto Biennale, in an art world dominated by white-wall, blue chip art conglomerates.

Carl Martin Faurby is a freelance curator and writer. He creates platforms for cultural investigations by means of contemporary art, which usually take place outside of institutional contexts. He is the curator of http://www.altcph.dk/">Alt_Cph 15, Copenhagen's non-profit and experimental art fair for the non-institutional art scene. Faurby is a member of the board of UKK (Young Artists and Art Workers), an organization that strives for better working conditions for art workers within the first 10 years of their careers, through lobbying and discursive projects. He is the author of Object This Picture (2012/2013) and co-author of Force Majeure (2014), and is a regular contributor to the art magazine vKunsten.nu.
