ABOUT WHY WORDS NOW
For a discipline named after its engagement with the visual, there is an awful lot of words in the world of visual arts. Through talks and performances by international artists, critics and curators Why Words Now investigates the paradoxical interdependency of image and language. Why Words Now is curated by artist and academy professor Simon Dybbroe Møller, and independent curator and PhD student at Aarhus University Helga Just Christoffersen.
Supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
