Stateless Mind is an interdisciplinary artist platform founded by the association Jambatan. The first Stateless Mind Festival was held in Copenhagen in 2019 and has since become an annual event with a growing interest and larger participation from both artists and audiences.
Stateless Mind specializes in interdisciplinary audience engagement collaborating with museums, art institutions, schools, and organizations creating a platform for artists to share their works through dialogs, archival, pedagogy, and the development of imaginative and investigative exhibitions in Denmark and Internationally. Future plans include working with artists that are experimenting with new media forms to reach an even broader audience.
Jambatan has hosted and coordinated four Stateless Mind performance art festivals and forums since 2019, both in Copenhagen and at the Venice Biennale. Stateless Mind works within the themes; migration, displacement, memories, and decolonization based on overall factors such as imperialism and global economic segregation impervious to the hierarchization of humanity into a racial or cultural center. It focuses on the diaspora and minority community regardless of their ethnicity, race, religion or sexual orientation in a so-called ‘world divided into compartments; where we see growing inequalities between home and belonging and traditions and new norms.
