f.eks.is a roaming exhibition platform for contemporary art that seeks to generate critical and speculative dialogues between audiences, artists, and broader publics.  f.eks. produces temporary art events that are located in and around the urban spaces of Aalborg – activating architecture, infrastructure, ecological sites, and public spaces through a series of live art engagements. These include performances, talks, workshops, readings, pop-ups, social installations, screenings, and many other forms of interactive and ephemeral art making.
    As an independent platform, f.eks focuses on supporting innovative artistic practices that relate to the social, political, aesthetic, and urban contexts of the sites in which the artists and publics interact.  Each site is chosen in dialogue with the artists to activate uncommon, underutilized, and underserved locations through artistic practice to engage broader publics. These include a variety of places and contexts such as municipal, private, residential, industrial, commercial, ecological and public sites and spaces.
    The f.eks. program is situated in these changing urban locations in which emerging, talented, and innovative Danish and international artists will be invited to make artworks on-site in a variety of contexts. The artists invited have different thematic interests within their individual practices, but also as a common point of departure work with collaborative, research-orientated, and event-based projects that seek to create rich dialogues through their art practices, location specificity, and audience interaction.
     These selected strategies allow f.eks. to experiment with alternative modes of artistic organization, production, and exhibition that pursue more sustainable outcomes not only for art and culture, but also in terms of creating a dynamic ecology of networks in a broader framework as well.  This is with the aim of seeking new social, political, economic, and cultural countermodels through and alongside a changing array of new artistic forms and expressions not easily situated inside a white cube or black box.  As such, f.eks. seeks both common and unorthodox partnerships with a variety of institutions, organizations, and entities to develop cooperative projects alongside. In terms of engagement, f.eks. is seeking to contribute to developing a broader artistic and cultural milieu in all the scales it touches – locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

f.eks. is an artist-initiated, non-profit organization that is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation and the Aalborg Municipality as part of a new two-year program in the waterfront city.
