Ung Dansk Fotografi ’21
Young Danish Photography is a recurring exhibition series at Fotografisk Center. Each year Fotografisk Center invites a guest curator to collaborate on creating the exhibition to show case current tendencies on the art photography scene to a wider audience. The exhibition series has existed since 1997 and also show video art and other camera based medias.
With participation of artists and photographers:
Liv Latricia Habel
Mathieu J. H. Hansen
Signe Rohardt Lund
Michael C. Madsen
Luna Emilie Printz Scales
In 2021 meter has been asked to co-curate the show with former artistic director of Fotografisk Center Kristine Kern. The exhibition will spotlight experimental, research based and critical projects. During the exhibition there will also be a number of events and discussions open to the public.

At this year’s Young Danish Photography there is a focus on lived history and thus memory, which is often placed in opposition to history as science; on adding to history and thereby challenging our understanding of the past, making it ambiguous; but also the history of representation, which may open the door to a debate on how people, society, and nature are portrayed.
