About CAMP

Trampoline House has its very own exhibition space named CAMP / Center for Art on Migration Politics. The center is a nonprofit exhibition venue for art discussing questions of displacement, migration, immigration, and asylum. CAMP produces exhibitions on displacement and migration with renowned international artists as well as less established practitioners, prioritizing artists with refugee or migrant experience.

CAMP takes its point of departure in the fact that more people than ever before are displaced from their homes because of climate disasters, war, conflict, persecution, or poverty. The center works to increase insight into the life situations of displaced and migrant persons, and to discuss these in relation to the overall factors that cause displacement and migration to begin with. The objective is, through art, to stimulate greater understanding between displaced people and the communities that receive them, and to stimulate new visions for a more inclusive and equitable migration, refugee, and asylum policy.

CAMP is the first center of its kind in Scandinavia and is directed as a self-governing institution by Danish curators Frederikke Hansen and Tone Olaf Nielsen, who also founded the center in 2015.

CAMP is supported by Danish Arts Foundation, Knud Højgaards Fond, Bispebjerg Lokaludvalg, BKF / Danish Visual Artists, and Migrationspolitisk Pulje.
