The Department of CCCC is a collaborative project by Aalborg Artist’s Association (AAAA) and lím collective - during the project period The Department of CCCC will reconfigure the exhibition space Tilgang at Huset i Hasserisgade into a site for cultural activism, presented as a series of resources for engaging with Culture, Care, Commoning, and Critique.
By reformulating the exhibition space into a space for artworkers, the project wishes to explore new ways of dealing with current artistic labour politics in order to improve working conditions for artists and artworkers. Highlighting the shifting boundaries between public and personal, The Department of CCCC creates a temporary collective platform to make visible the organising labour that usually takes place within individual artist studios and homes. The project’s programme features a wave of practical, social and emotional tools consisting of healing movement workshops, communal dinners, frustration walks, film screenings, and meetings that can help deal with institutional barriers, occupational health, and resource sharing within the context of the contemporary art sector.
The Department of CCCC is kindly supported by Aalborg Municipality, Huset i Hasserisgade, and The Danish Arts Foundation. A special thank you to Arctic Street Food, Casa Anne Maries Vej, f.eks., The Greenlandic House, Husets Café, Nikolaj Legaard, and Trekanten.
