Studio and studio rentals are not cheap and prices are rising, especially in the larger cities. UKK believes that artists should have the opportunity to live and work in the cities despite the rising rents.
A conversation with TWIIID and Scott William Raby
A group working to create an environment that meets the needs of art workers with disabilities to have access to the same opportunities and resources as our able-bodied peers.
In 2020 UKK made an agreement with the The Association of Danish Museums (ODM), Danish Artists Association (BKF) and Danish Artists Union (DBF) on recommendations for minimum fees for exhibitions at museums, in 2023 the agreement was updated and Foreningen af Kunsthaller i Danmark (FKD) joined.
How can UKK contribute to the development of the sector of art?
New study points to the need for artistic environments in the larger cities. Art and artists contribute with creativity and experimentation to create diversity and life in the cities of Denmark. But how do we ensure affordable housing and studios so that artists can stay in the city? The new study ‘Artistic Environments – the Development of the Diverse City’ offers well-substantiated suggestions in the form of concrete scenarios for the artist residences and communities of the future.
In 2019 UKK held a symposium for students at The National Gallery of Denmark
Three symposiums in 2019, with the aim of investigating questions around art and finance, as they relate to the role of the artist, the circulation of work and novel organisational forms in the field of art.
