Die Zukunft – Wir denken mit den Augen
Is intended as a play on society’s popular idea of the artist as an individual with a special prophetic gaze and the notion that any work is not just an exhibition manifestation, but also a manifesto in itself. This group exhibition includes individual works by the ten artists behind the Udstillingsstedet Sydhavn Station in Copenhagen, Denmark. The exhibition will show works in various medias and genres including video, drawing, painting, photo, sculpture and text.

About the artist run space: Udstillingsstedet Sydhavn Station
What was previously the ticket office of Sydhavn (South-Harbor) Station has now been transformed into an art space. Situated in a mixed residential area in Copenhagen, the exhibition space is only a 5 minutes train ride from the Main Train Station. The artist run space was founded in 2012 by ten Danish artists and consists of two spaces of 538 sq. ft. and 86 sq. ft. and 15 poster holders located in the station foyer, which was originally used as advertising space. The exhibition space hosts 10-12 contemporary art exhibitions per year, in varied forms, by artists from Denmark and abroad.

The exhibition space is established with a desire for creating a framework where the unobtrusive can be heard. We all have different artistic approaches, which mirror the varied exhibition program and the non-fixed profile of the space.

This plastic casts of a frontcover book of the infamous art-critic Clement Greenberg, and the triptychon as a genre is loaded with religious meaning, and so is the monochrome loaded with idealized abstractions, beyond the narrative and the literary. Greenberg’s understanding of art – particularly painting – was through an evolutionary understanding, an understanding of a linear time dealing with the future (dystopia / utopia): “The Monochrome became a sign of the future”, Jacobsen claims.
