Director of CAKI Center for Anvendt Kunstnerisk Innovation
Pernille Skov holds a mag.art degree in Art History from University of Copenhagen and a MA in Modern Art from Goldsmiths College, London.
Immediately after finishing her academic studies, she became self-employed when starting her own firm. She started out as editor and writer in Danish and Scandinavian publications on the subject of architecture and urban development, including being co-editor of an anthology on urban preservation. Along side her writing and editorial work, she made various art projects, which were shown in international exhibitions from Copenhagen to New York.
Realizing that she wanted to make a noticeable difference on the local situation, she decided to start an educational program called Creative Ghetto for the immigrant populations, training a selected group of people for jobs in the creative industries.
Later she worked as a communication consultant for various public institutions, including the Ministry of Integration and the Ministry of Science and Technology. But soon she wanted to do something different than being a consultant. Moreover, she missed the art world, so she started making web casts, specializing in communicating contemporary art in short films. Her costumers are as diverse as the Danish Arts Council, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and the Artist Fall Exhibition. She is also the founder and editor of a smaller independent initiative called ‘Kunstpausen TV’ (Art Break TV).
She is also partner in Art+Innovation Hub. Pernille now works as director for CAKI Center for Applied Artistic Innovation.
