Initiated in 2007, the Metropolis Laboratory and Metropolis Biennale in Copenhagen are already established as a focal point for a generation of international artists, researchers and practitioners involved with urbanism.

Metropolis Laboratory 2010 was held at the former Carlsberg Breweries in the heart of Copenhagen. Itself a historic environment, the area is gradually being transformed by arts and cultural institutions – among others DANSEhallerne.

Metropolis was initiated by Copenhagen International Theatre as the frame for a 10 year programme (2007-2017). The main theme of Metropolis is the urban condition as perceived, commentated, contested and developed in the realm of the arts.

Metropolis Laboratory is organised as a professional forum where we invite researchers and practitioners from the social sciences, the arts and architecture, alongside with producers, curators, community representatives, developers and local authorities.

We also see the Laboratory as a starting point for the Metropolis Biennale in August 2011. Following on from the Laboratory, artists and architects will be invited to take part in residencies.
