‘When the climate and the sea levels change, our coastal cities and landscapes will also change. They will be different from what they are today. This means we need to adjust our conceptions of them and create images of new futures. The works produced at the school and presented at the biennale look for new ways of seeing the towns and landscapes we are familiar with’, says Katrina Wiberg.
She will be creating works in collaboration with architect Nikolaj Knudsen, independent architect Boris Brorman and Nikola Gjorgjievski, a research assistant at Aarhus School of Architecture.
Imagining the future
The architectural content of the Danish Pavilion will be developed by curator Josephine Michau and the landscape architect firm Schønherr, working together with leading researchers and students from various Danish knowledge institutions.
The ambition is that this year’s contribution to the exhibition in The Danish Pavilion should create in all its visitors new attention to different solutions and ways of imagining tomorrow’s coastal landscapes and the consequences of climate change – in Copenhagen and the rest of the world.
· The project is supported by Realdania, the Ministry of Culture and the Danish Arts Foundation’s committee for architecture, among others.
· The biennial opens on 20 May and ends on 26 November 2023. More about this
