FFF (flere folk formidler/more people mediate)
A project drifting somewhere between art and politics, was “More People Mediate” during the EU summit in Copenhagen in 2002. We tried to build an alternative information and exhibition venue. Cultural workers took the initiative to the project, but it also involved political activists who had no previous connections to the art scene. The background was that we wanted to question the media coverage of previous summits. We believed that in the past the accounts from them had been onesided, with too great a focus on the violence at some of them. We thought that the issues that were raised in connection to the protests around the meetings were often neglected in the news. Instead the established media spread an image of violent riots that were seldom inscribed in a political context.
