SPOR Festival

Presenter / Aarhus, Denmark

Anna Berit Asp Christensen, co-director

SPOR’s vision is to thematise, actualize and promote the contemporary music and sound art, nationally as well as internationally. SPOR creates a platform for stronger connections to the international sound art and music scenes — and therefore fruitful exchange that can inspire artists and further develop Danish contemporary music. The main activity of SPOR is the annual festival, which takes place each year in May at a number of established venues and alternative locations in Århus, Denmark. Since 2007, Anne Marqvardsen and Anna Berit Asp Christensen have served as the institution’s artistic and festival directors. SPOR collaborates every year with a new guest curator or a curator collective selected by the festival directors. By collaborating with a new guest curator every year, the festival renews itself all the time, and ensures that each new festival has its own unique characteristics.
