In November 2023, UKS launched the new event series COMMUNE, its name and logo borrowed from a contribution by British artist Tai Shani for UKS’ 100th-anniversary exhibition, which circled around conviviality and struggle, disagreement and discourse.

COMMUNE invites local and international agents from the arts and cultural spheres to set UKS’ spaces in motion – artistically, theoretically and socially – as a flexible format that can span performances or one-night-only exhibitions, archival presentations and in-depth conversations, as well as exuberant parties! Engaging with our wider community, UKS opens up Keysers gate 1 to be moulded into a meeting place for trusted old UKS-ers and cultural newbies alike, spurring friendship and kinship, the continuous co-creation of the field, and new, playful ideas.
