A project aiming to establish a transcontinental network for knowledge sharing between artists and cultural agents from the USVI, Ghana, Greenland and the Nordic region, instigating new North-South and South-South knowledge infrastructures
The project is a transcontinental collaboration between Denmark, the US Virgin Islands, Ghana and Greenland. Focusing on artistic and community-led practices that respond to colonial legacies, the project will organize workshops for knowledge sharing and artistic research in each location, with the goal to establish long-term artistic networks.
The project is led by Coordinator Daniela Agostinho (DK) and co-coordinators Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld (DK) and La Vaughn Belle (VI). Other actors engaged in the project include artists and cultural actors from Ghana, Greenland and US Virgin Islands.
Daniela Agostinho is assistant professor at the Department of Digital Design and Information Studies at Aarhus University. Her main areas of research and teaching are cultural theory, visual culture, artistic research, feminist, postcolonial studies and digital culture.
La Vaughn Belle makes the forgotten visible. Borrowing elements from architecture, history and archaeology, Belle creates narratives that challenge colonial hierarchies and invisibility.
Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld is a Danish visual artist, educated at Det Kgl. Danish Academy of Arts 2008 and Ph.d. from the Department of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Copenhagen (2015).
