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.

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 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.

The Week of Kunstdemokraterne (Art Democrats)

Kunstdemokraterne (the Art Democrats) is a youth community at CC, working with art and democracy. During this week we gathered knowledge from inspiring guests for the work of Kunstdemokraterne. We talked about art, democracy and activism.

17.7.20

Summer week for families

As a closing of the week, where families worked with art at CC, we held a vernissage at the community house in Vermundsgade, Nørrebro. The exhibition was highly inspired by the works from In Focus: Statements, consisting of flags, banners and posters.

15.7.20

Banner workshop with Kunstdemokraterne

As a part of Statement Studio, Kunstdemokraterne (the Art Democrats) invited to a banner workshop. They discussed statements, what they contain and what makes them strong. All banners were hung in the Statement Studio container as a part of the exhibition In Focus: Statements.

Opening of Art Container

As a part of the collaborative art project Usynlige Stier, the Art Container at Krakas Plads opened with vernissage, artists talks and DJs. The container is a place for artistic dialog and co-creation between local citizens and local organisations.

Statement Studio

When In Focus: Statements opened in June, so did Statement Studio. Statement Studio is a workshop where you can create your own statement. You can paint, print, draw and make your own badge so that you can wear your statement on your clothes.

Summer school

Throughout the summer CC invited kids to join our summer schools. We worked with the exhibitions, the island and the nature around us and creating artworks. The summer schools were finished with an exhibition of the kids’ artworks at CC.

Education during COVID-19

When the schools had to use alternative classrooms during COVID-19, CC Studio moved the workshop to Nørrebro to teach a group of kids from Nørre Fælledsskole. The students created their own Fortune Cookies inspired by the work of Felix Gonzales-Torres.

About CC Studio

CC Studio is synonymous with CC’s strategy for presentation and learning. CC Studio is both a physical location at CC and a term defining the way we think and practise learning throughout the art centre. We use the word ’studio’ because it means ’workshop’ and refers to a place intended for study and reflection where materials can be examined and issues explored further. CC Studio is based on the first floor at CC, complete with a creative workshop, exhibition spaces, and space for immersion, learning, and relaxation. CC Studio is centred on collective activities.

At CC, we organise exhibitions to be experienced with your whole body and from which you will hopefully gain inspiration. Art which might prompt questions, get you talking, thinking, laughing, playing, discussing, and getting to know others.

CC Studio designs educational materials for everyone to use as inspiration during their visit to the art centre. We put great store by dialogue and the exchange of experiences and ideas. Our exhibition hosts are always happy to chat with you about art. Just ask them.

Our facilities, materials, and activities are designed to allow children, young people, and adults to be together. If you’re not used to visiting exhibition venues, we’d be happy to show you some ideas on how, together, you can experience the centre and its art. Our goal is that everyone gets an opportunity to experience art in an engaging and informal way.

We encourage you to examine and experience the art in all manner of ways – on your own, together with someone you know, or with those you meet at the art centre. New social set-ups are formed and existing ones strengthened when we come together through creative and physical activities in the exhibitions. A fact we consider important.

Guided tours for children

On Saturdays and Sundays at 14.00, art educators invite children and their accompanying adults to attend guided tours for children through the exhibitions where they can examine and experience art. Focus is directed at examining the art using all faculties. The guided tour always takes its point of departure in what the children find interesting.

Workshop

The workshop is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11.00–17.30 where children and adults can work with different materials together with our workshop artists. Working in the workshop is free when the admission fee has been paid. You can also book the workshop on weekdays.

Temporary exhibition in hall 4

Each year, we invite an acclaimed international artist to create a site-specific total installation for CC Studio – a so-called playscape which everyone can explore, play in, and examine using their bodies. The Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren has created our first playscape, entitled Art is Life and you can experience it in hall 4 on the first floor.

Performance, Art Bar, Culture Night, and much more

In 2020, we place special focus on performance for children and young people via performance workshops, a series of performances, and separate workshops. We take part in the Culture Night event and invite you to attend the Art Bar event where children show the art and their favourite spots in the art centre to each other.

Schools and institutions

Art can be a unique starting point for learning and frame the context for activities, play, and dialogue, building the foundations for the formation that will ultimately turn us into active citizens. We have, therefore, designed learning programmes and courses for institutions, young families, upper secondary education, workplaces, and other groups. Both as permanent programmes, such as pictorial analysis and contemporary art, which you can book at any time –and special programmes based on current exhibitions.

We use dialogue-based teaching for all age groups – adults, too. Schools and institutions are welcome to visit CC on their own and can also book educational programmes. Write to us at ccstudio@cphco.org or call +45 2989 8087.

CC Studio designs projects in collaboration with housing associations, institutions, festivals, and many others

Together with numerous other people, we are continuously developing new ways in which to work with art, community spirit, life changes, and democracy. Centred on art, we work closely with diverse groups of children, youngsters, and adults from many walks of life in meaningful and stimulating collective action to create change and encourage a sense of community.
We take part with projects and agenda items at the Folkemødet (a Danish festival for democracy and dialogue), the Folkemøde for Young People, Roskilde Festival, and the cultural event on the island of Mors, Kulturmødet.
We want to make a difference to society by helping to ensure that everyone has equal opportunities to take part in, experience, and access social and cultural resources.
We realise that art can be a powerful platform for motivating people and stimulate ideas to take an active part in communal life. Under the heading Fællesskabsprojekterne (Community activity projects), we want to work to empower mixed community groups in society.

You are most welcome to contact us with your enquiries, ideas, and suggestions for collaborative projects. Follow CC Studio’s initiatives and activities in Journal and in the calendar.
