rum46 is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary
art. rum46 was started in 1995 by a group of young artists
from Jutland Academy of Fine Arts (DK) and Art historians from
the University of Aarhus (DK).
Today the space is run by a various group of people within the
field of art.
The group is significant because of their extensive interest
in redefining and developing art shows and events taking up social
and political issues. They arrange and develop ways to explore
social and political premises in society through interdisciplinary
These take form via events, seminars, talks, screenings, specific
settings and events in public space and more.
The projects presented by rum46 are an _expression for the understanding
of art as social dialogue, communication and action.
One of the most significant projects in recent years was
Gæstebud - Feast/Hospitality running from Dec.
2002 till Dec. 20003.
The art project Gæstebud - Feast/Hospitality
was based in the urban, social and political space. The title
was the overlaying metaphor for the structure of the exhibition
project, which was divided into the three phases of the Feast:
The invitation, The meal and The digestion/The 'thank you'-card.
October 2004 until August 2005 the group is working with
Solidarity UNLIMITED? - Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
This interdisciplinary project is a thematic follow-up on
Gæstebud - Feast/Hospitality. With new angels on human
relations, a number of international artists, participants and
lectures place liberty, equality and fraternity on the
agenda in the current social and political everyday life in Denmark.
The participants show new spaces and possibilities of action,
alternatives in relation to the society we ourselves are part
of, via exchanging and interaction in social, political and cultural
fields - with starting point, amongst others, in the aesthetic.
