Ever since the launch of KOPLAND at the Amerikalei, we have been vigorously exploring ways to bridge the gap between artists and the public.
The design for the cross-disciplinary space by interiorarchitect Laure Dever, one of our residents, provides us with the opportunity to host a range of cultural events from exhibitions, lectures, pop-up shops, performances, screenings and many more.
The refurbishments have cost us a lot of blood, sweat and the tears of an intern but was the next step in establishing an all-encompassing creative headquarter. KOP invites you to come and behold the new artspace during a weekend of festivities.
