PENGESPEKULATION
Pengefiktioner

PENGESPEKULATION (Money-speculation) is a design-anropological collective established in 2016 consisting of interaction designer Johanne Aarup Hansen, visual designer Asmus Lauridsen, ethnologist Pernille Gøtz and visual anthropologist Jack Jones. The group is engaged in research and experimentation with the world of money and economics in the border between design, anthropology and art.

With their exhibition PENGEFIKTIONER (Money Fiction), the group preliminarily concludes their specific focus on and travel into the marvelous, mythical, political and technological world of money. For three years, the group has studied money as a man-made phenomenon, which has historically and currently taken various forms.


KASPER KJELDGAARD
The spirited object

Kasper Kjeldgaard is a trained furniture designer. He is aware of how objects can move us closer to an understanding of the nature surrounding us. The fundamental preconditions for our physical world's cohesion, such as weighting, rotation, and friction, become in Kasper's objects a poetic consideration of what design is and the distinction between the abstract and the functional.

For the exhibition The spirited object, Kasper shows both new and older works, which in different ways relate to the more mythical and spiritual dimensions of the world, and the aesthetic in objects that relates to this sphere.

 

JAVIER TAPIA

Javier Tapia is a visual artist and lives and works in Copenhagen. Tapia is originally from Chile, but has lived in Denmark since 2002. Tapia's artistic pracsis is moving between several media; installation, sculpture, video, photography, sound, text and interventions.

The art project Lumumba System is an exhibition designed specifically for the premises of HFKD. The title of the project is inspired by the iconic anti-colonial leader and first legally democratically elected President of the Republic of Congo; Patrice Lumumba (1925-1961).
