FIBER Online Studio Visit: Jakob Kudsk Steensen
Following the inspiring first edition of the FIBER Online Studio Visits last month, we are happy to announce the second edition of 2020, taking place on Thursday July 2nd. We will visit Jakob Kudsk Steensen, who is internationally known for his large-scale video and XR installations that invite viewers into new ecological realities.
In a physically-distanced-accepted form, the FIBER Online Studio Visits are a unique opportunity to gain an insight to artistic making processes and learn about the wide variety of contemporary artistic practises in digital culture. Leading up to the FIBER Festival 2020 (Sept 24-27) we will visit two studios each month where we, together with the creators, will explore their work processes and the way they adapt to the current COVID-19 reality.
