bureau publik is a space for artistic and discursive activities, attempting to understand the current situation. The focal point is the recent years' protests in the U.S., North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, that have created new forms of resistance and a renewed critique towards capitalism. This as part of the struggle against the neo-liberal way of handling the financial crisis as well as against its negative impact on ordinary people. bureau publik is a space for generating new meanings and perspectives, on other ways of imagining the world.
The project was initiated by publik, which since 2005 has arranged temporary art projects in public spaces in Copenhagen, and is run by curators Katarina Stenbeck and Johanne Løgstrup.
bureau publik is realised with the support of the Danish Arts Council.
