Fotografisk Center, November 6 - December 20, 2015.
When is it appropriate to revisit historic events, and what does the interpretation of the past mean for our perception of the present? The exhibition 'Rewriting Histories'examines how history can be retold from a contemporary perspective and thus focuses on a theme in the visual arts, which has been given a new twist and renewed relevance with recent political events.
27 internationally recognised Danish as well as foreign artists focus on archiving and storytelling through photography, slide installations, film and video works. The key questions in many of the works on display are: how is history told, and can history be told in different or new ways? What role does an archive play the understanding of the present? And why does history continue to be worth revisiting?
'Rewriting Histories' is curated by Kran Film Collective in a collaboration with the artists Lasse Lau (DK) and Benj Gerdes (USA) and they invite us with their words to consider how culture produces meaning and knowledge. They challenge us to not just be passive recipients of history, but active in the creation of future historical narratives. In the installation of Rewriting Histories at Fotografisk Center, the exhibition space is conceived as a part of the overall staging.
