Artist Talk with Maria Kapajeva - February,1st - 3-5 PM


This is a unique chance to experience the artist talk about what went into this thought-provoking piece titled "Test Shooting".

Location: In front of CBS Digital Art Space, Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg.

About the video work: 

With the #MeToo-movement and recent years focus on the interaction between the sexes, Maria Kapajeva's video "Test Shooting" is very relevant, as it tests the absurdities of the stereotypical presentation of female attractiveness.

We see an older man who partly undresses posed as a model at a photo shoot. He is asked to strike various poses according to the instructions given by the artist from her position behind the camera. These instructions have been found on websites where Russian women who are looking for a Weestern husband are told how best to present themselves. 

Kapajeva's video has been recorded without prior rehearsal and is characterized by an unedited immediacy between director and model. 

Maria Kapajeva is an Estonian artist, who lives and works in London. Last year, "Test Shooting" won the Runner Up Award at FOKUS Video Art Festival. 



CBS kunstudvalg inviterer til indvielse af Michael Kviums bygningsintegreret skulptur


tirsdag, den 21. august 2018, kl. 17:00.

CBS ønsker at integrere kunst i både undervisning, forskning og læringsmiljø. Michael Kviums skulptur, der er udarbejdet i sortbrun-patineret bronze, er installeret på en af søjlerne i atriummet i CBS’ bygning Kilen. Med denne fremtrædende placering i det smukke fællesrum, kan skulpturen opleves af alle, der kommer ind i bygningen. Skulpturen har titlen ’Social Pattern’ og forestiller et system af sammenhængende kropslige figurer, der starter øverst på betonsøjlen og bevæger sig ned ad og rundt om den forbundet i et tarmlignende system. For Kvium er skulpturen en indirekte spejling af vores ideer om os selv og vores dybt forankrede behov for en opdeling i ”dem” og ”os”.


  • Velkomst ved rektor Per Holten-Andersen

  • Om værket og kunstens rolle på CBS, Christoffer Faurschou, initiativtager og studerende på CBS, CBS Art

  • Afsløring af SOCIAL PATTERN ved Michael Kvium, Per Holten-Andersen og Frederiksberg Fonden

  • Reception med bobler og kanapéer  

Indvielsen finder sted på CBS’ bygning KILEN, Kilevej 14A, Atrium, 2000 Frederiksberg.

Etableringen af Michael Kviums skulptur er realiseret med støtte fra Frederiksberg Fonden i anledning af CBS’ 100 års jubilæum i 2017.

Bitcoin treasure hunt, a sculpture, video and audio art. CBS is involved in the art festival Copenhagen Art Week when the exhibition “TECHTONIC - changes and movements through technology “ is hold at Solbjerg Plads and the Wedge. 

“We look forward to the cooperation with DIAS Art Atelier which brings art closer to CBS students, employees and other interested people”, says Philipp Alexander Ostrowicz from CBS’ art committee.

You can experience five digital works of art at CBS throughout the days.


At Solbjerg Plads, you can experience an interactive audio artwork by the American artist Wayne Siegel. Your body will be used as an instrument in the artwork to create a unique audio universe.

In the canteen, you will be able to watch a video by the artist Matt Kenyon. The video reflects and comments on Coca Cola’s promotion of the soft drink as a positive choice.

You can also go on a Bitcoin treasure hunt by the artist Vibeke Bertelsen. Keep an eye on the picture clues, answer the riddle and find Bitcoins worth DKK 1000.


The Bitcoin hunt continues at the Wedge but you can also stop to watch a video of the German artists Bianca Stich and Jan Brand. The artwork is based on our online culture characterised by the easily digestible - including cat videos. The artists ask whether the internet is democratic or pacifying.

The artist Jacob Remin participates with a sculpture. Remin focuses on the materiality of the digital and examines how the digital cloud works.

The exhibition is free and can be accessed during CBS’ opening hours.

Opening: Jan Grarup

CBS Art Committee invites to view 4 pieces of artwork by photographer Jan Grarup,

Tuesday the 6th of February at 3.30 pm in Ovnhallen, Porcelænshaven 20.


- Welcome by Philipp Alexander Ostrowicz
- Drinks and snacks

In December 2017, CBS purchased four pieces of artwork of the danish photographer Jan Grarup. The four images depict the world’s chaos and war, but at the same time they show a little sign of hope and the urge of man to survive in the midst of all the chaos.

Jan Grarup (DK, b.1968) has over the course of his twentyfive-year career photographed many of recent history’s defining human rights and conflict issues. Grarup’s work reflects his belief in photojournalism’s role as an instrument of witness and memory to incite change, and the necessity of telling the stories of people who are rendered powerless to tell their own.
