How to start diversifying the Danish art field?
Who are present, exhibited, performing, working or visiting our art institutions? Who is here and who is not here?
The Danish art field is still, in 2020, surprisingly homogenic and white. As a cultural institution that understands the urgency of diversifying our art field HAUT still lacks the tools and language to talk about issues around inclusion, whiteness, structural racism. Now is the time to start practicing having these uncomfortable but vital discussions.
HAUT has invited Helsinki-based artistic director Sonya Lindfors to share concrete tools and practices.
Sonya Lindfors is a choreographer that works with curating, facilitating, community organizing and education. She is the founding member and artistic director of UrbanApa, an inter-disciplinary and counter hegemonic arts community that offers a platform for new discourses and feminist art practices.
In all her work Lindfors deals with issues of power, structures, representation and othering. Her recent projects WE SHOULD ALL BE DREAMING (2018) and COSMIC LATTE (2018) centralize questions around decolonial dreaming, feminist practices and black body politics.
Lindfors has been awarded with several prizes, the latest of which being the international Live art Anti Prize 2018
