Koh-i-noor is an independent project space and non-profit organization run by a group of artists based in Copenhagen. Koh-i-noor was founded in 2004 and has since then produced a number of exhibitions, discussions, film screenings, and performances.
Koh-i-noor aims to provide and uphold a collaborative, process-related, informal platform for open thought, information exchange, spatial experiments, interdisciplinary approach and to maintain a reflection on contemporary art. Although operating within an international network, Koh-i-noor’s activities are also informed by and related to its local context and situation. The focus of Koh-i-noor is to create a space for experimentation and to have an influence on the discourse of contemporary art. Koh-i-noor seeks to ensure a critical distance and take position towards contemporary cultural and social conditions.
Guidelines for use of Koh-i-noor exhibition space:
Each resident will received the space in an orderly, clean condition and must leave the space in the same condition after their residency period. That means: the floor is washed, the sink is to be cleaned free of dirt and paint as needed. Garbage is to be put in the big containers in the backyard of Koh-i-noor (go through stairway #60).
The floor, front facade, window and door cannot be used/changed unless approved by the Many Mini Residency organizers.
It has to be respected that Koh-i-noor is situated in a residential area. As Koh-i-noor has earlier received complaints because of noise; it is therefore very important that there is no noise after 8 p.m. (ex. no sawing, drilling, and playing loud music).
