Recipe for a Meeting

This Thursday, December 17th at 9:30 we would like to invite you to watch Recipe for a Meeting, a TV-TV program produced by YNKB in collaboration with Kajsa Dahlberg and Ilya Lipkin. The program will air on Kanal Hovedstaden. There will also be a dinner and a second screening of the program at 18:00 Friday, December 18th at YNKB.

Conceived as a response to the COP15 summit in København, we see this program as the record of an experiment in collective subjectivity. Working with footage of the city, a demonstration, bodies in space, cooking and a shadow play, we attempt to think through an alternate vision of the images surrounding this event. Together, we intervene into the climate of spectacle that the summit has produced in order to ask the question of what a different conception of politics and subjectivity could look like.
YNKB is located at Baldersgade 70 st tv, 2200 København N
All are welcome.

Book reception: Let's remake the world

LET’S RE-MAKE THE WORLD This book is a collection of documentation and writing around exhibitions and seminars that took place over several years and one ocean. It represents collaboration between the organizers, Ydre Nørrebro Kultur Bureau (YNKB) and The Library of Radiant Optimism for Let’s Re-make the World (Brett Bloom + Bonnie Fortune), and the participants at those exhibitions and seminars. It represents ideas bubbling up and then fading or conversely, gaining traction and sustainability among a dispersed group of practitioners. It represents a beginning.

Magazine Launch

A key task of this journal is to introduce the market 'failure' of a capitalist economy – the repressive destructive nature of a system that works forthe few at the expense of the many – into the comfortable discussions on how universities might best suit the interests of the labour market; or how everyone might best become a professional member of the creative middle class. This debate must be set against the economic and political reality of massive debt, price hikes, wage decreases, and the general squeeze on labour, within the context of what can only be described as capitalism's ongoing and permanent state of crisis.
Sophie Schasiepen from the Rosa Kerosene group, who published "The Economy has left The Building" came to YNKB to introduce the Magazine.

ynkb Window

It all started when we hang up a t-shirt in the window with the text: Boycot Israel, as a reacion to the massacre in Gaza. The day after we recieved a mail saying this was a vulgar and undifferentiated attitude. We answered the mail and the exhibition in the window was extended with posters of Palestinian Artists, critical articles and other stuff.
