The Maria Project is an art project that, based in Mariakirken on Vesterbro, seeks new social-ethical models for conversation, togetherness and society through practices of both the church and contemporary art. The project is driven by the notion of art as a forum for methodical exchange and development, and the art projects are therefore various attempts to develop a social-ethical approach and method that bring forth new agendas for how we – in the church, art and society – listens, speaks, acts and thinks socio-ethically.
The participating artists are:
Hanne Lise Thomsen, J&K, Kenneth Balfelt Team, Khaled Barakeh, Santiago Mostyn, Stine Marie Jacobsen and Tamar Guimarães + Ronah Sadan
The Maria Project is initiated in the autumn with a series of talks and activities under the title PRAXIS, which introduces both the participating artists and their methods and invites organizations and practitioners dedicated to the social-ethical work locally in Vesterbro, nationally and internationally to bring perspective and inform about the reality the project is aimed at. PRAXIS will be a dialogical channel for the project’s ongoing reflections on both the church’s and art’s methods and norms in the face of reality.
The Maria Project is supported by i.a. The Danish Arts Foundation, Bikubenfonden, Copenhagen Diocese, Municipality of Copenhagen and Vesterbro Local Committee.
The event takes place in English and entry is free, but requires registration via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
