Denmark - Biennale Architettura 2016

Explore and enjoy in the Danish pavilion the exhibition 'Art of Many and the Right to Space': an exhibition organised as two complementary spatial installations.

The curators Kristoffer Lindhardt Weiss and Boris Brorman Jensen have selected more than 130 architecture projects from within the last 15 years, and is thus seeking to identify and report from the frontline of contemporary Danish architecture. An attempt that has first and foremost collapsed rather than consolidated the division between the aesthetic of architecture and the need for viable pragmatic solutions to how people can live - Danish architecture is the Art of Many. Everyday battles are not about architectural style but about impact, methods and societal consequences. The issue at stake here is the right to space. The right to space for the public, for the many.

For 50 years Danish architect and professor Jan Gehl has led the battle for cities for people. In the video installation 'The Right to Space' Jan Gehl is presenting his approach towards creating human friendly cities in his insistence on the right to space

From the projects in 'Art of many', the exhibition condenses five agendas, Exit Utopia, Designing Life, Pro Community, Beyond Luxury, and Claiming Space - which is put into debate both through the many projects, the art of the many, and through Jan Gehl's tireless work on improving life in the cities.
