Utopia LIVE
Copenhagen Free University

Saturday 18th June
Noon – Midnight

The Copenhagen Free University presents a 12-hour long live broadcast from the university in Denmark direct to the Whitechapel auditorium. A cross between Big Brother and Andy Warhol’s ‘Sleep’, the transmission will be both an unedited presentation of daily life at the CFU as well as a choreographed and occasionally interactive series of events, talks, television, poetry, mess, music and waste. Aiming to examine the conditions of television in the context of cinema, the relationships between desire, information, capital and entertainment, the event will be a 12-hour long window of investigation allowing both the audience and those making the broadcast to explore an alternative structure and mode of engagement.

The auditorium will be accessible throughout the day with a single ticket. You can receive the broadcast schedule in advance by leaving your email address at: www.copenhagenfreeuniversity.dk

The Copenhagen Free University opened in May 2001 in the flat of Henriette Heise and Jakob Jakobsen. It is an artist run institution dedicated to the production of critical consciousness and poetic language: “We do not accept the so-called new knowledge economy as the framing understanding of knowledge. We work with forms of knowledge that are fleeting, fluid, schizophrenic, uncompromising subjective, uneconomic, acapitalist, produced in the kitchen, produced when asleep or arisen on a social excursion - collectively"

Utopia LIVE is organised by Jakob Jakobsen, Emma Hedditch, Henriette Heise and others.
