Three Interventions in the Periphery: How to Live in Copenhagen’s Southern Harbor

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


This paper revisits the cultural industries through the lens of the new norms for artistic practice that have evolved within the debates around social practice art, a field of art with a particular sensitivity towards issues of invisibilities, inequalities and injustices, and a strong activist dimension. The paper constitutes a qualitative case study of an artistic intervention in the southern harbor of Copenhagen, a project that situates itself between social practice art and the expanded notion of creativity that forms part of the discussion of the creative industries. The paper investigates how creativity is used in the pursuit of social purposes and how such creative work relates to the situation of the urban area in which it intervenes.
