About Fresh Eyes

FRESH EYES – International Artists Rethink Aarhus is a collaboration between Galleri Image and Aarhus Centre for Literature. The art project focuses on how photography and literature can be used to rethink and interpret urban space. Since 2013, 11 international photographers and 7 authors have visited Aarhus. Here they explored the city and entered into dialogue with its inhabitants. Afterwards, based on their experiences, each artist has made their own artistic bid on how to rethink Aarhus.  

On October 12th – 29th 2017, the project reaches its peak in an urban space exhibition with the artists’ contributions. The exhibition is curated by artist and author Gitte Broeng and is a part of Aarhus 2017’s official programme. In connection to the exhibition, the literary and visual art works will also be published in an art book. Here the photographs and texts will stand side by side and supplement with each other in their innovative, artistic presentations of Aarhus.
