CC STUDIO

For everyone

CC Studio is CC’s learning centre. We’re based on the first floor with workshops, exhibition spaces, and room for immersion, learning, and relaxation. We arrange guided tours, workshops, and art talks for children, young people, and adults and invite them to take part in workshop activities and attend lots of special events during the year.

We want to develop learning activities that will inspire you to experience art on your own and with others. Please contact us if you have comments or suggestions for collaborative ventures or new activities.

Guided tours for children every weekend

On Saturdays and Sundays at 14.00, art educators invite children along with their adults to attend children’s guided tours of the exhibitions. The tour lasts about 30 minutes and is free when the entrance fee has been paid. Together, we examine the art through dialogue, play, and activities.

Recommended age: 4–12 years.

CC STUDIO

Learning

CC Studio invites you to join playful and instructive collective activities based on art. CC Studio is CC’s learning and communication initiative, setting out various creative trails throughout the art centre.

Primary school

Pictorial analysis

Topics: Art history, pictorial analysis

Subjects: Danish, visual art, history

Which methods and tools can we use when looking at art? And how do we tackle contemporary art? This programme takes us round the various exhibitions, prises open the works with questions and activities, and tests various methods of artwork analysis.

We adapt all our programmes to the age group visiting us. Our art educator would like to know if there’s something particular, you want to focus on.

Workshop: In our two-hour programme, pupils will have an opportunity to work practically and creatively with pictorial analysis in CC Studio’s workshop.

Contemporary art

Topics: Contemporary art, perspective, collaboration, analysis, participation

Subjects: Danish, visual art, history

What is contemporary art? How do we define and talk about it? We examine, analyse, and put perspective on contemporary art at CC and try to learn more about the times we live in.

We adapt all our programmes to the age group visiting us. Our art educator would like to know if there’s something particular, you want to focus on.

Workshop: In our two-hour programme, pupils will have an opportunity to work practically and creatively with contemporary art in CC Studio’s workshop.

Performance scripts

Topics: Performance art, contemporary art

Subjects: Danish, visual art, drama

What is performance art and how does a performance artist work? In this programme, pupils will learn about art by creating it themselves. We look at CC’s archive of performance scripts accumulated and extended on a continuous basis in conjunction with international artists. In art history, scripts for performance art are called event scores and have been used by many artists as a means to making their live works more accessible and unconstrained by time and space. With an event score, anyone can stage their own performance as and when it suits them. The programme gives pupils an opportunity to test the event scores of others and produce their own.

Workshop: In our two-hour programme, pupils will have an opportunity to work practically and creatively with performance art in CC Studio’s workshop, in the exhibitions, and in and outside the building.

Art using all our senses

Topics: Senses, colours, play, motoric function

Subjects: Visual art, Danish, craft and design

This programme examines the exhibitions at CC using every human faculty. We move through the various exhibitions, involve the faculties of hearing, smell, and touch. We challenge the body, play, and discuss what we experience as we go. What happens when viewers are transformed into participants? And how do we experience art when we’re active in it and with it?

Workshop: In our two-hour programme, pupils will have an opportunity to work practically and creatively by involving several faculties and materials in CC Studio’s workshop.

Youth and adult education

Art as a space for play and learning

Topics: Art education, dialogue teaching, user involvement

CC Studio is CC’s learning centre. This programme gives you an introduction to dialogue learning and the various forms of art education which underlie our work. At CC, play, the body, and sensation are always integral to encountering art and with our art educator, you have an opportunity to try out the various exercises we have developed. The programme invites exploration of the special reflective space that art can help create.

An art institution without a collection

Topics: Art institutions, curating, institutional analysis, cultural heritage

Copenhagen Contemporary is an art centre and not a museum. But what’s the difference? And how is an art centre run? Which challenges and special possibilities do we have at CC? Our art educator will take you through the centre and examine exhibitions, activities and spaces. You will get an idea of CC as a cultural institution and an introduction to organising exhibitions, education, events, etc.

Day-care institutions

Info

Programmes for children aged between 2–6. All our programmes are adapted to specific age groups. We are happy to design a programme together with you.

Special price for day-care institutions: DKK 800 for a two-hour programme and DKK 500 for a one-hour programme.

Art using all senses

Together, we take a walk through the large exhibition space. The children’s observations and ideas form the basis of the programme. We spend plenty of time examining the artworks, playing, and discussing what we experience as we go. We focus on the senses, colours, play, and motoric function.

Workshop: In our two-hour programme, the children get an opportunity to make a sensuous portrait of themselves. We work creatively using several senses and different materials in the workshop.

Special programmes

We have, for example, designed special programmes in collaboration with the sixth-form college Det Frie Gymnasium, the artist collective vontrapp, Live Art Danmark, the art school Københavns Kunstskole, Aalborg University, the housing association Bo-Vita, and the citizen’s activity centre Aktivitetscentret Sundholm.

We have also designed extensive thematic programmes for primary and lower secondary schools.

About CC Studio

CC Studio is the learning and interpretation centre at Copenhagen Contemporary (CC). Besides being a physical place, CC Studio is a term describing the way we think and practice learning at the art centre, generally. ’Studio’ signifies the idea of a workshop offering an opportunity to explore and examine materials as well as providing space for immersion and contemplation.
CC Studio is based on the first floor with creative workshops, gallery spaces, and specially designed areas for learning, relaxation, and reflection.

At CC, we arrange exhibitions that you can experience using your body and hopefully gain inspiration from. Art which perhaps makes you want to ask questions, talk, think, laugh, play, discuss, and interact with other people.

CC Studio develops learning material for everyone to use as inspiration for their visit to the art centre. We value dialogue and exchanging experiences and ideas and our exhibition hosts are always ready to discuss art with you. Just ask them when you see them in the galleries.

Community spirit is the pivot of CC Studio’s work. Our facilities, materials, and activities are designed to bring together children, young people, and adults. New groups take form and existing ones are reinforced when we meet via creative and physical activities in the exhibitions.

If you are not used to visiting exhibitions, we’ll be happy to give you some ideas to experience the house and the art together. The goal is that everyone will have an opportunity to experience art in an engaging and informal manner.

Guided tours for children

Every Saturday and Sunday at 14.00, art hosts will be inviting children and their adults to attend guided tours for children to the exhibitions to dig a little deeper into the art. We try to examine the art with all our faculties and the tour will always be centred on what the children find fascinating.

Workshop

The workshop is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 to 17.30. Here, children and adults work with different materials along with our workshop artists. Once you have paid the admission fee, it is free to use the workshop. The workshop can also be booked on weekdays.

Always a special exhibition in hall 4

Every year, we invite an acclaimed international artist to create a total installation specifically for CC Studio – a so-called playscape, which everyone is welcome to explore, play in, or examine using their bodies. The artist Sol Calero, who was born in Venezuela, has created the current exhibition El barco de barro – The Clay Ship – with pavilions, furniture, and a large clay workshop open to everyone.

Earlier, the Swedish artist, Jacob Dahlgren, created the first playscape Art is Life with works composed of more than seven hundred dart boards, three hundred weights, and ten thousand silk ribbons.

Performance, Art Bar, Culture Night, and much more

In 2021, our focal point is still performance for children and young people via performance workshops, a number of shows, and workshops. We take part in the great Culture Night and Culture Night for Children and invite visitors to attend the Art Bar where children show each other the art and their favourite spots in the art centre.

Schools and institutions

We work with dialogue-based teaching for all age groups – adults, too. We have developed learning programmes and courses for institutions, young families, post-secondary education, workplaces, and other groups. Both set courses in, for example, picture analysis and contemporary art, which can be booked at any time – and special courses based on current exhibitions.

Schools and institutions are also very welcome to visit CC independently.

Write to us at ccstudio@cphco.org or call +45 2989 8087 if you would like more information, to book or announce your independent visit.

Every day, we experience that art is a unique starting point for learning and a fun and inspiring context for activities, play, and dialogue. Working with art can make us active citizens and help us reflect critically on the world around us.

Contact us if you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions for things we could do together.
