B&W’s current main project are the Teach Each Other Mondays platform for non-hierarchical knowledge sharing across all forms of art. We will soon come out of out winter break and are looking forward to welcome guest artists Helene Kvint, Antoinette Helbig and Susanne Danig to share their practice.
Our first meeting in 2022 will be on February 28 with Helene Kvint. Check our Facebook page for more info!
We are keeping fingers crossed that the current regulations on cultural events will be lifted soon. However, if new rules should be imposed, we will support all measures to curb the pandemic.
We will inform you about current rules as we publish new events.
Share your practice
Each Teach Each Other Monday features a guest artist, duo or group. We would like you to be one of them! Share your practice with a crowd of performers, professionals and enthusiasts for one hour on a Monday morning. Bring your favorite exercises, research practices, rehearsal methods, games, songs, dances or anything else you’d like to try out with others in a low threshhold, flat hierarchies setting. Only rule: Everything must be accessible for anyone, regardless of experience, education or ability.

Summer 2021: Island hopping up B&W’s Family Trees
B&W on Agersø
Our second island project this year took place on our favorite island of Agersø.
B&W received funding from Slots- og kulturstyrelsens sommeraktivitetspulje to host a workshop on identity and belonging. Based on our Stammbaum project, our entire family hosted islanders and vacationers to tell family stories, draw family trees and build kinetic sculptures, mobiles from natural materials. We have found the idea of the “Uro”, as it is called in Danihs, to be an exciting approach to working with our ever moving, carefully balanced, mixed, changing, patchwork or rainbow families.
The project was made possible by a grant from:
B&W on Bornholm
In June 2021 B&W were awarded one of four family residencies at BIRCA Bækkelund International Residency Center for Artists on the island of Bornholm in June 2021. The residency was designed especially for artists who include their children in their working process – just what we aim to do within the framework of our thematic complex „Das Familiensystem ist das Kunstsystem. Das Kunstsystem ist das Familiensystem“. We decided to use our stay on beautiful Bornholm to initiate our collective work on family stories, identity and belonging, the „Stammbaum“ project, together with our two daughters, Ronja (13) and Sille (almost 2).
