Lokale

 

“I have been wondering about how and where we work, and whether (how) the work can be transported out of the location. I was confronted with very 

violent thoughts around work and crisis, and how these conditions are connected to placement or lack there of.” *

 

We have invited 14 artist and writers to participate in a conversation around Lokale. From January the 16th to the 21th of May, activities will take place in

this location. Over this time period, different works are interwoven through overlapping patterns. Contributions are montaged in intervals, and consist of 

one-time appearances, 1-3 weeks segments, and throughout the entire duration. In Lokale, we operate with both preexisting works, and works being made 

specifically for Lokale. A systematic is constructed that involves notions of a constant, the unforseen and interference between the different components.

Lokale tries to outline some of the basic conditions of the workspace as both a place of production and reception, and the paradox imbedded in this 

proposition. What kind of system can ‘receive and speak’, a condition of the space we are working in and not only the constant workflow itself?

 

A generative system; the feedback loop has been brought up as one example of the workspace**. The recurring exchange occurs when a sound circuit is 

established between, a microphone and a speaker. The sound is continually fed into the system. The frequency of the resulting sound is determined by 

resonance frequencies in the microphone, amplifier, and loudspeaker, and the acoustics of the room. What happens when nothing is fed into the system, when 

we decline the basic conditions of the workspace? Many things contribute: procrastination, being overworked from having to make a living, simply day-

dreaming, taking a nap... The room is starting to roam, making its own noise. The cabinet spreads it’s content and collects it again. The workspace is also 

an archive of hidden workload, potential activities, unseen movements and the traces left behind.

When you enter this space, what are you? An audience, on display, here to get a cup of tea? Lokale is a household. Is it part of your walk home, or are you going to listen in from a distance?

 

Welcome nevertheless.

Notes:

 

* “Lokale is nearby, in proximity to where I live, down 3 flights of stairs, along the sidewalk 30 meters, to the left over a walkway, by the Laundromat, in the

 residential neighborhood of Vesterbro, Copenhagen (formerly known as working class), in an ABB, co. orb rental unit. Lokale consist of 3 rooms, in 

all approx. 70 sq. meters (Danish standards). You can enter the space in 3 different ways: ring the door bell, and go up the staircase 5 steps to the front 

door/ through the storefront door which faces the street/ via the back door that exits to the common yard. Visible through the big storefront window is a 

small room, 2 white walls, a radiator, a rear wall with a window with views to the next room which is accessed by a small staircase which leads to a tiny hall 

that opens into the main room (or at least the biggest). In this room are tables and chairs, books and papers on the walls, tables and floor. Sitting at my table 

in the main room, I can look through the glass wall through the storefront and onto the street and out to the common yard through a window on my right side. 

The space is quiet apart from the occasional humming of the radiator and a constant whiz from the ventilator in the kitchen. I close the door... 

and open it up again.”
