COPENHAGEN.- This December, Kunsthal Charlottenborg opened its doors to the most comprehensive showing ever of the works of █████████, when the Danish artists’ group's 20th anniversary is celebrated with an unconventional retrospective exhibition. Eight internationally renowned curators are presenting eight simultaneous █████████ exhibitions – and one of the exhibition concepts bans both Charlottenborg and the artists’ group itself from using the name █████████.

Jacob Fabricius, director of Kunsthal Charlottenborg, says: "█████████ has been one of the most important contributions to the development of the Danish art scene over the past two decades. They have also attracted considerable international attention with their many debate-creating works and projects. It is therefore something of a scoop for Kunsthal Charlottenborg to be able to host no less than eight simultaneous █████████ exhibitions at once." █████████ – banned by contract.

"One of our curator teams, Lisa Rosendahl and Daniel McClean (SE/UK) has made life difficult for us all with a contract that simply prohibits both Kunsthal Charlottenborg and █████████ from mentioning █████████ by name. I cannot even say who it is we are exhibiting," Jacob Fabricius continues.

█████████ has been in existence since 1993 and consists of Bjørnstjerne Reuter Christiansen (b. 1969), Jakob Fenger (b. 1968) and Rasmus Nielsen (b. 1969). The group describe their projects and works as tools – in a form that can be activated and often changed by the audience, the users. The group's multifaceted artistic practice is characterised by a continuing interest in exploring social, political and cultural conditions. █████████ create their own game rules and humorously and intelligently challenge accepted conventions in relation to, for example, copyright, power structures, design and finances. Throughout their career, a hallmark of the group has been their working method of co-operating with others, whether artists, professionals from other fields, or local users.

Eight retrospective exhibitions under one roof In co-operation with █████████, Kunsthal Charlottenborg has chosen an unconventional approach to the concept of a retrospective exhibition: Eight international curators and curator teams have been invited to provide their own suggestions for a retrospective exhibition of █████████. In combination, the eight resulting exhibitions constitute Working Title: A Retrospective Curated by █████████. All of the artists’ group’s works and projects over the years have been made available to the curators, and the exhibition is presenting more than 100 works on the first floor of Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Consequently, this is the largest-ever exhibition by █████████. There is an opportunity to experience both a large number of older iconic works such as Supergas (1996), Foreigners, please don’t leave us alone with the Danes (2002) and Free Beer (2004), as well as works of more recent date, such as Flooded McDonalds (2009), Free Sol Lewitt (2010) and Bankrupt Banks (2012).
