"you can't make a sundial in a window facing north"
The windowsill isn't level anyway, and needs repair.
The top step of the stairs is broken, and what is wearing so much on the floor in here?
We'd rather be outside in here you can only point out.

I'll fix the floor while I'm at it.

It's not an interesting finger, take it away

YNKB on alt_cph:
Soup in September
50 meters from the the Factory for Art and Design there is still
an old market garden. There you have to watch out for needles. The
municipality wants people to stay out: they are cleaning the area
for drug addicted and homeless people. It’s outskirt Denmark
in the middle of Copenhagen and a location for an alternative art
forum in the middle of September. On the lawn behind the Factory for
Art and Design YNKB created in June 2010 a city garden with growing
potatoes and onions from Jutland, wild mint and herbs from the market
garden which are no more there and ecological fertilizer from horses
and hens in Christiania and expensive non toxicated soil from who
knows where. At alt_cph opening YNKB will cook a soup from the vegetable
grown in the city garden. As interesting and good flavored as it can
be. But healthy for sure.

Booklaunch: YNKB Tema17: City Weeds.
YNKB is proud to announce that we will publish a new edition of YNKB
tema publications on Friday the 17´th of September at our stand
at alt_cph on Friday the 17th at 5 pm.
YNKB Tema 17 Is a nice little pocket book in A6. The Book documents
workshops arranged by YNKB: weeds and wild plants of the city at alt_cph
in 2008 and at Outer Nørrebro in 2009 in autumn and spring.
We collected the weed in the city space and together prepared meals,
tea, coffee, marmalade and fruit juice from wild herbs, fruit and
berries we found there.
The book contains an introduction by YNKB. The Process is documented
through a rich number of drawings, watercolor designs and photos and
with recipes of the dishes created during the process by YNKB. Biologist
Nils Grøngaard, who has been conducting the collection of wild
plants, has written poems and a essay for the City Weed publication.
The word weed, in german Unkraut=noweed, in old Danish nograss. They
are plants, which are not desired by people who owns or uses land
– or water territories, where they grow.
In YNKB we wish that this little book will give new inspiration to
how we with joy can collect and use the weed and wild plants of the
city. YNKB Tema17: City Weed is 65 pages in A6 with texts in Danish
and English. Price 40 kr. Can be bought at Alt-cph 17,18, 19 September
2010 and through YNKB website

YNKB visits Oda projesi in Istanbul
YNKB was invited by The Istanbul based artist collaborative to take
part in their project in Gülsuyu. Oda Projesi means “Room
Project” and employs thinking of the different usages of the
“room”: finding a way to combine the daily life and art
practices. The group wants to bridge relations between artists, non-artists,
artist-run-groups, institutions and the communities in the neighborhood.
Gülsuyu is an old neighboruhood from 1950's where it was one
of the first gecekondu (slum- favella- nightly madehouse) areas. In
the center of Gülsuyu Oda Projesi established a shop. Here YNKB
presented Peoples Museum.

Sholette's research into politically-engaged artists' collectives
raises the following proposition: cultural economies are secretly
dependent upon a sphere of hidden social production involving cooperative
networks, systems of gift exchange, unwaged labor, and collective
forms of practice that act as a type of missing mass or dark matter,
which the art world typically refuses to acknowledge. Thanks in large
part to the spread of digital networks, however, this dark matter
is getting brighter. By looking at more than 30 years of contemporary
artists' collectives, Sholette's research attempts to map this materializing
missing mass politically, as part of a broader history from below.
