Roskilde Festival Art Zone 2018 (#120)
The warm months have fully settled upon the land, and with every Danish summer comes the yearly tradition of Roskilde Festival, one of the world’s largest music festivals. Around 130,000 people attend the festival, which is run by a non-profit organization. For many years now they have also had a surprisingly ambitious art zone during the festival, with running themes and critical commentary on social and political issues. This year, for example they built four one-to-one replicas of the proposed wall types for the donald’s anti-cooties barrier between Mexico and the US. We spoke with the head curator, Mette Woller, and three of the exhibiting artists, Jillian Mayer, Oskar Koliander, and previous guest of the program, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen. It was nice to see a large festival working on promoting critical and contemporary art, and we are already looking forward to next years program.
