The Answer

Newspapers from nine different countries.

The selected countries: Greenland, Great Britain, Israel, Korea, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine and USA people have had different perceptions of the truth. In each newspaper page a letter is cut out, together they form the word (or the absence of): The Answer. The project began with an interest in the way, individuals, organizations and nations represent themselves and in the concept of truth in relation to self-understanding. The original collages were exhibited at Aarhus Center for Visual Art.

THANK YOU The exhibition is kindly supported by Aarhus Municipality, Aarhus Center for Visual Art and Godsbanen.
