Lasse Lau (b. 1974) is a visual artist and filmmaker based in New York and Copenhagen. Agency of Public Resources (APR) is the imaginary common subject matter from which all of Lau’s recent interdisciplinary art projects originate. It is an agency that through the means of art and collectiveness accumulates on-site knowledge, and through dialogue facilitates re-negotiations of space and democracy. Lau was the co-founder of the Danish artist group CUDI – Center for Urban Culture, Dialogue and Information, which raised questions on displacement in the representation of minorities driven by xenophobia in Europe, and how the modern Suburb became the new model of suppression. He has exhibited in a wide range of museums and galleries including Hamburger Bahnhof and Wolfsburg Kunstverein in Germany, Aarhus Art Museum and Brandts Klaedefabrik in Denmark, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Croatia, The Turin Biennial of Contemporary Art in Italy, the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, and Smack Mellon Gallery and MoMA PS1 in New York. He studied at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and Funen Academy of Fine Art.
