NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN is an art festival and social experiment organized by the artist-run community Wooloo.org.
NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN takes place in thousands of private homes during the United Nations Climate Change Conference from December 7th to 18th, 2009.
NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN does not involve any actual exhibitions or physical works of art. Instead, we invite our participants to live together – and to live in new ways.
Participating artists include Superflex (DK), Marisa Olson (US), Raketa (SE) and Signa (A/DK).

PARTICIPATE OR DIE
Today is the first day of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. For the next two weeks, representatives from 192 nations have gathered in Denmark to reach an agreement on a new global climate treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol. However, there are not enough hotel space to accommodate most of these visitors, as all hotels in Copenhagen and the surrounding area have already been booked for the official delegates. In order to help solve this substantial problem, Wooloo.org has been running a volunteer-based campaign in Copenhagen asking private families to open up their homes for the activists. By November 2009, this initiative had created free housing for more than 3,000 activists and climate campaigners coming to Copenhagen from over 100 countries. Utilizing this large-scale human meeting as our exhibition platform, we have invited artists to explore its social architecture.”
