Chamber of Public Secrets

Chamber of Public Secrets (CPS) is a production collective of critical art and culture: an informative, non-profit, independent contributor to the global art scene.
The collective works as a network of artists, curators and thinkers who have been collaborating since 2004 in the organization, production and circulation of exhibitions, video and film festivals, art events, experimental TV and radio programs, political fictions and documentaries. CPS members also set up debate forums and talks and publish books and articles on issues like migration, mobility, representation, colonialism, gender and difference to help debate the role of art, its responsibility and its relation to society.

CPS co-curated the Biennale Manifesta 8 in Spain 2010-11,
curated events and cooperated with at institutions like Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Guangzhou Triennial, Guangdong Museum of Modern Art, China, and UCCA Beijing; Danish Film Institute; Nikolaj, Copenhagen Art Center; Museum for Contemporary Art, Denmark; and the Nordic House Reykjavík, Iceland; Cinema Paris; KIASMA Museum in Helsinki, Queens Museum, NY; Hamburg Film Festival; Docu-days Beirut; Video Brazil; Der Kunstwerk in Berlin; Né a Beyrouth Lebanese film festival; Sidney Film Festival; Milano Film Festival and San Francisco Arab Film Festival.

CPS members are part of globally recognized art associations, among others The Art Consultancy Unit (ACU), the International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art (IKT), and the International Association of Art Critics (AICA).
