Første Torsdag / BITCH: The char can fly everything

Free entry

This month, * Første Torsdag* will be taken over by BITCH – a parasite art space with roots in both the digital and the physical world. BITCH is a stationary computer that houses small physical exhibitions in its glass cabinet and runs an online exhibition platform that can be seen on the kunsthallens website.

BITCH is also a bitcoin miner, which utilises the power from the places where it is exhibited to extract cryptocurrencies.

The digital exhibition platform is an online computer game with rooms created by a 3D scan of the place where BITCH exhibit. Guests can see works, explore the area and chat together. The artists Sophia Ioannou Gjerding, Mark Tholander, Aske Thiberg, Malthe Stadsgaard and William A. Valentin have made the characters that you as visitor can control.

This time, BITCH presents the exhibition The char can fly everything – an exhibition about cryptocurrencies and digital items in computer games by the creators of BITCH Malthe Stadsgaard and Mathias R. Andersen.

Første Torsdag

About Første Torsdag
Første Torsdag is a platform for time-limited artistic experiments. Two hours each month we hand over Café Kunsthal or Kunsthal Aarhus’ outdoor areas to a new artist every time.

Første Torsdag is a monthly ‘art bar’, where the art is inevitably influenced by the social context in which it appears. Beige therapy, melting sculptures, live coding, silly walks and AI battles are just a small selection of what has taken place. The artists usually take the opportunity to try out new performative works or to give new life to an older work.

Let this be your monthly Thursday tradition. Discover the best of the new – cherry-picked for you by Kunsthal Aarhus.

In collaboration with the artist, Café Kunsthal creates a cocktail for the occasion so that the art is not only observed - it can also be consumed.

Første Torsdag is curated by Kunsthal Aarhus' curator Mikkel Elming.
