InstantHerlev institute celebrated ten years of artistic interventions and exhibitions in the calm of the suburban city of Herlev, with this anniversary exhibition, called BY INVITATION ONLY.  Artist and curator Anja Franke has used her home as the site of InstantHerlev institute as a stage from which to query urban and social conditions of this neighborhood. In 2014, the exhibition was about looking inward, towards the interior of Franke’s home and the possibilities offered by the domestic space to become another kind of microcosm, that of the nation state. Especially as it addresses its relationship to others, whether they are foreigners or nationals, friends or foes. This summer long exhibition produced many events, performances and celebrations. Marking 10 years of cultural production in Herlev, Denmark.
