Eight international artists are invited to take part in a month-long Metropolis Residency programme. Some of the first visitors to be able to enter Copenhagen post-lockdown, they are collectively investigating what the future is made of, who makes rules about it, who creates future spaces around the city and who will be using them.

As they are mapping the fluidity and the flow of the city along both sides of the harbour, around 25 km, they are gathering objects, images, conversations, open wounds, creating sonic and performative actions – and taking them along as they walk to the future. From their own individual research interests in regeneration, housing, migrations, transformations, collective memory, endangered communities, transitions and in-betweens, twelve individual walks will culminate in a collective sharing moment on a raft, reflecting on personal discoveries made en route

Exploring the harbour from their eclectic backgrounds as something that connects and divides the city, they are looking at squatting communities, green areas, regeneration, sometimes momentarily hijacking spaces and questioning whether the future is floating and who will be part of it.

The artists: Natasha Davis, Diego Echegoyen, María Daniela Pascual Esparza, Ruggero Franceschini, Salomé Mooij, Merel Smitt, David Somló & Zelda Soussan.
