- ‘Curating an Egalitarian Territory’ is a design project is sited in Copenhagen, Denmark, critiquing its realm of egalitarianism, assessing what ‘territory’ might mean within a context based upon equality. Denmark is considered to be one of the world’s most egalitarian countries – yet the project asserts that an underlying exclusivity makes the country inherently hierarchical in society.
The project is initiated by a cross examination of the city of
Copenhagen, with regards to territory and archaeological flux. The
resultant drawing demonstrates the simultaneity of the overlapping
hierarchies that exist within an egalitarian society, demarcating frames
of the city such as bank branches, emergent municipalities, reclaimed
land and the ever-growing cycling territory. The project hence emerges
from this edited and layered interpretation of the city.
