SOUVENIR x ALT_CPH
It’s 2018, and we’re looking for new alternatives. Alternatives to the detached body politic, to mindless consumerism, to environmental destruction and digital alienation. Alternatives to conservatism and right-wing nationalism, to fear and hate. Alternatives to gridlocked institutions and useless traditions and everything else that holds us back
At the Danish performance festival ALT_CPH, art becomes the medium to explore these alternate modes of existence. Contemporary, compassionate, and honest, the particpating artists weave political and social fictions to help us better understand, and help us better, our reality. They transform neu to alt(ernative) and old to new, alt to art and back again.
Representing a young generation of creatives who are tired of crusted
social institutions and stale conventions, NEW ALT honors art as
an exploration of our possible futures, our imagined realities, and blun-
tly, some better options. As pioneers of the contemporary, we don’t
quite know where we’ll end up - but we know there must be better ways
of getting there.
The NEW ALT tee will be available at ALT_CPH 2018 and in the SOUVENIR online and Berlin shop.
