International Guest Artists!
We’d like to share some great news. B&W received funding from Statens Kunstfond to invite some of our favorite international artists for short residencies and Teach Each Other Mondays. Look forward to meet Dani Ploeger from the Netherlands, Margaret Dragu from Canada, and Mark Boombastik from Germany. We’ll be back with details as they unfold.
We are keeping fingers crossed that the current state of affairs without any pandemic restrictions on cultural events will last. However, if new rules should be imposed, we will support all measures to curb the pandemic.
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.
These dates are available until summer 2022: May 2, 16, June 13.

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).
