|Copenhagen Free University
The Copenhagen Free University is an artist run institution dedicated to the production of critical consciousness and poetic language. „We work with forms of knowledge that are fleeting, fluid, schizophrenic, uncompromisingly subjective, uneconomic, acapitalist, produced in the kitchen, produced when asleep or arisen on a social excursion collectively.”
Posters and Propaganda from the Copenhagen Free University
We have over the years been producing posters promoting the ideas and practises connected to the Copenhagen Free University. This has been our strategy when invited to work in 'unknown territories' to disperse propaganda about self-organisation and how to take power in our own lives. Among the posters are the manifesto All Power to The Copenhagen Free University, and the dictionary, The ABZ of the Copenhagen Free University, etc. The most recent posters are three film-posters promoting the Exploration and Unlearning Series.
The Exploration and Unlearning Series
Exploration and Unlearning Series is a series of television programmes that investigates how knowledge is constructed and deconstructed through experience and play. Mediated by a camera, the programmes move in and out of the 'warfare' between the kid's worlds and the adult's world. We are the actors: Solvej Heise Jakobsen, Henriette Heise and Jakob Jakobsen.
