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.
WHAT HAPPENS AT SOLBJERG PLADS?
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.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE WEDGE?
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.
Opening: Mette Clauen - Selfmachine
Selfmachine (pattern in resistance) by Mette Clausen (DK).
As part of the exhibition About Work at Danske Grafikeres Hus the work will be installed in a new setting - the canteen at Copenhagen Business School - Rotunden, ground floor.
Opening and reception: november 7, 4pm
Copenhagen Business School,
Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg
The artwork can be seen within CBS' opening hours at Solbjerg Plads.
