"Landmark Exhibitions: contemporary art shows since 1968 brings together world-renowned artists, critics, curators, museum directors and scholars to identify and analyse key moments in the histories of exhibitions of the last forty years.
This two-day symposium argues that the exhibition, long overlooked as an epiphenomenon, is central to our understanding of contemporary visual cultures. Participants will discuss the (in)visibility of exhibitions, the proliferation of biennials, the exhibition as archive, the politics of curating, and the sitedness of exhibitions."

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
