TED Talks on Acid + CPH:DOX opening party

Artist group New Red Order presents a wild and unruly live event across formats in Social Cinema, followed by the CPH:DOX opening party at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

TED Talks on Acid (TToA) is an innovative live event format that weaves between public assembly, academic symposium, music and film festival and artists talk. Artists, activists and academics share the line-up with rappers and noise musicians in order to present a discursive and hopefully hallucinatory trip to questioning the ongoing legacy of Danish colonialism in all of its forms. Contributors in alphabetical order: Sean Connelly, Mathias Danbolt, Katrine Dirckinck-Holmfeld, Marie Kølbæk Iversen, Lars Jensen, Lars Bang Larsen, Asmund Mikkelsen, Virgil B/G Taylor, Uyarakq, and others.

Hosts: Mathias Kryger and Irene Campolmi. After the event CPH:DOX will kick off their opening party.TED Talks on Acid takes place March 25 2022 at 21.30-23.30 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Further info here.
