Performative reading by Hannibal Andersen

Visual artist Hannibal Andersen will share a revised version of a notorious bank's "Societal Impact & Sustainability" report.
20 Nov 13:00 - 14:00
Location: Pillar Square

Come by the Pillar Square where Danish artist Hannibal Andersen will present a modified version of a bank's "Societal Impact & Sustainability" report.

Each year, corporations of a certain size release reports about their impact on society and the planet. Loaded with buzzwords and promises of progressive development – social, economic and environmental – the reports aim to make sure that the public is aware of how ambitious, well-meaning and important these corporations are: To let us know that they are part of the solution, not the problem. Needless to say, these reports are composed mostly of empty promises and multicoloured washing.

What would it sound like if one of these corporations decided to take their responsibility to the logical conclusion? An example of this can be experienced, when visual artist Hannibal Andersen will share his revised version of a notorious bank's "Societal Impact & Sustainability" report by the Møntfod sculpture.

Hannibal Andersen is educated from London College of Communication and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. His work explores the often-obscured economic principles that set the structures in which we live our lives. Through audio, video, text and performance he seeks to question the sustainability of these structures.

The language used in this event is Danish.
