Guided tours

Copenhagen Contemporary considers it a point of honour to offer vibrant and inspiring introductions to art where professionalism, perspective, and curiosity are key. Our learning activities are always based on current exhibitions. Learn more about them here.

There will be guided tours of Science & Contemporary Art from 1 Aug – 23 Oct; Children’s Games from 14 Oct, and Gudernes Lager (Storeroom of the Gods) from 18 Nov.

A guided tour of CC’s current exhibitions lasts around 45 minutes and is based on any special wishes you might have. Whether you are a company, an art society, a family, or a group of friends, we will strive to give you a special experience of the art and the gallery spaces. Our guided tours are for everyone who would like to share an experience of large-scale contemporary art – both for experienced art-museum goers and those who are new to visiting art exhibitions. We are art professionals and appreciate the dialogue with you.

A group consists of max. 25 persons. Groups of more than 25 will need to book two guides. Please write or call our booking service, giving information on who you are and whether you have special requests for the tour.

Price

A guided tour costs DKK 600 before 17.00 on weekdays, DKK 700 after 17.00 on weekdays, DKK 800 at weekends – plus admission fee of DKK 75 per person aged 18 and over.

Introductory talk on Light & Space

There will be introductory talks on Light & Space until 4 September.

Light & Space comprises a number of vulnerable works and space in the exhibition is limited. It is a large exhibition and visitors want to be able to take in the works at their own pace. To facilitate this, we arrange a talk about the exhibition, giving a helpful introduction before you move on to experience the works yourselves.

The talk takes place in a separate room and lasts around 30 minutes with time for questions and debate. The art guide will introduce the exhibition and the artists, placing them into a contemporary art perspective.

After the talk, the guide will take you into the first gallery space and introduce a couple of the legendary works. Afterwards, you will move through the extensive exhibition at your own pace.

Introductory talks are given during our usual opening times.

Max. 25 persons.

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 always use the very best materials for artistic activities and we prefer non-digital activities. We’re interested in dialogue, play, and immersion.

The admission fee gives you free access to all activities and you don’t have to register.

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.

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

We invite acclaimed international artists to create total installations specially for CC Studio, the so-called playscapes, which everyone can explore, play in, and examine using their bodies.

The exhibition Storeroom of the Gods by the Danish artist Hannah Toticki Anbert will open in November. This will e.g. include a large-scale knitted sculpture, an installation featuring wings, and an informal pub.

Earlier, we showed the exhibition, El barco de barro (The Clay Ship) by the artist Sol Calero, born in Venezuela. She filled the hall with pavilions, furniture, and a large clay workshop open to everyone.

The first playscape, Art is Life, was created by the Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren at CC in 2019, featuring works constructed using 700 dartboards, 300 weights, and 10,000 silk ribbons.

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.
