Copenhagen Free University

Free Class Videi Collective

"The Copenhagen Free University opened in May 2001 in our flat. The Free University is an artist run institution dedicated to the production of critical consciousness and poetic language. We do not accept the so-called new knowledge economy as the framing understanding of knowledge. We work with forms of knowledge that are fleeting, fluid, schizophrenic, uncompromising subjective, uneconomic, acapitalist, produced in the kitchen, produced when asleep or arisen on a social excursion - collectively"
Henriette Heise and Jakob Jakobsen

Free Class Video Collective

Free Class was a nomadic class that had the city as its frame and subject. Free Class visited locations where artists and activists critically worked with redefining the city and public space. Collectively we filmed our excursions intending to produce an educational television series for a local television channel in Copenhagen. The series shows some of the struggles for the space of the city that we meet during our journeys in Copenhagen in 2006.
