Skateboarding in Oil deals with an important year in Christopher Kadetzki’s life. His first trip to Copenhagen, his encounters with Nicky Guerrero, the Copenhagen Opens 2021 and the many experiences and events associated with that time not only appear in his paintings, but also shaped the artist’s life as well as his ideas and possibilities for the future.

Mainly on display will be works created over the course of the last year during the painter’s travels to Europe’s most famous skate spots in collaboration with a wide variety of greats from the skate scene, such as Nicky Guerrero. These include the Berlin Banks, Hullet Copenhagen and the Malmö Train Bank spot, which find their appreciation on a handmade and unique series of decks, which were built and designed in collaboration with Grzegorz Filewicz, founder of Berlin Boards Brewery.

A special focus, which runs like a thread through Christopher’s oeuvre, the artist puts on the artisanal aspects of skate culture, which are often – obscured by trends, forgotten, but represent the indispensable foundation of this subculture. Without the almost artistic skills of ramp builders, carpenters and board builders, this culture and the currently ongoing “hype” could not exist. Skateboarding in Oil can in this sense also be understood as a tribute to the craft and to all the talented personalities behind it, who have accompanied the artist over the past year and who in the background make the successes of this vibrant subculture possible in the first place.

As part of the opening weekend of the exhibition, Culture.Room will host an after-show party on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at skatepark “Wonderland” in the Free City of Christiania. For both the Copenhagen and international skate scene, this represents a central place of exchange and gathering that has played a pivotal role in Christopher Kadetzki’s artistic development over the past year.

There will be German Hip-Hop acts of different generations, such as Figub Brazlevic and other artists from the Berlin underground hip hop label Krepkek Records.

//Exhibition & Artists

EMIK wants to create a low-threshold access to contemporary art by means of a multidisciplinary exhibition model. For artists as well as visitors, a space of experience is created in which the most diverse perspectives on art can be rethought. The focus lies on the breaking up of linear presentation models. Through the synthesis of different media, the exhibited works are to be “released from their frame” and the visitors will be addressed on various sensory levels.

//The inner Myth

On December 11th & 12th 2021, Culture.Room invited the french multidisciplinary artist ANIDE to commence his new exhibition series:

Composed of different multidisciplinary shows, the “Theatre of Reverie” revolves around the theme of the imaginary. Through collaborations and the creation of bridges between different mediums, this series of exhibitions explores themes that experiment around the deeply human state of reverie:

Hypnosis and automatic creation, dreamlike performances, content around waking dreams, suggestive and meditative music, workshops on alternative realities, studies of recitals around memory, etc…

Closely linked to our perception of the world, our imaginations shape our way of approaching reality. The stories we have heard and those we tell ourselves inhabit and form us. Since the dawn of time, humans have been creating narratives, ranging from everyday stories to myths that span across the ages. All of these narratives are intended to convey messages, to maintain a memory or, above all, to build ourselves as individuals or as a society.

This series of events aims to trigger this imagination’s automatisms through sensitive, generous, intimate and immersive experiences in different locations with different concepts. It was built around a desire to create bridges between people and their own stories and tries to offer a poetic vision of our daily lives, so we can maybe experience new perspectives on our own imaginations and therefore on ourselves.

//About the Show:

In a world which seems to have reached the limits of the societal dynamics put in place in recent years, it seems crucial to invent new belief systems in order to create a more stable, sustainable and environmentally friendly society. To do this, we need to ask ourselves as individuals: what inhabits, drives and animates us? What do we want to defend and share?

Josephine Binder’s photography acts as a mirror of her perception, functioning as reconciliation between her inner feelings and her external impressions. With her camera she manages to capture the precious memories and personal references of the people and places that surround her. These pictures tell stories about friendship, spontaneity and atmosphere.

Her analogue portraits testify to a deep intimacy between her and her subjects. With profound empathy and many years of experience behind and in front of the camera, she manages to draw out people’s inner self, capturing shared private, organic and human moments between photographer and subject, making them accessible to outside viewers.



When looking at the works, one almost feels transported into a gentle daydream, through which these mystical moments of human emotions and playful spontaneity are able to penetrate deeply the viewers inner sensibilities. At the same time, the works are in no way obtrusive or demand a particular perspective, but rather settle into the viewer’s personal affections like a pleasant fragrance.
