An audio recording of N55's talk at Arnolfini in November 2009.
Described by Lars Bang Larsen as “one big and very stimulating grey area between art and life” N55 is an artist collective established in Copenhagen in the mid nineties by a group of four art school graduates. N55's aim is to "rebuild the city from within" using everyday life situations as the locus for public events and artworks, which are developed, published and distributed through their trademark Manuals.
Their projects include Walking House (2008), Micro Dwellings (2005), and Home Hydroponic Units (1997). N55's Ion Sørvin will give a presentation on their work, followed by a discussion with Dr Rachel Sara, Senior Lecturer in Planning and Architecture at the University of West of England.
