CC Studio is synonymous with the facilities, activities and learning programmes that Copenhagen Contemporary offers children and young people as well as adults. The idea behind CC Studio is to present contemporary art in innovative ways where learning and reflection on the world happen through a physical and dialogue-based encounter with art.
Every year CC invites a recognised international artist to create a site-specific playscape for CC Studio. The exhibition aims to unite art and play in a physical and aesthetic experience. There will be a chance to touch, move about in, examine and use the exhibition, thereby activating body, eye and mind.
