    Galleri Image presents the exhibition History of Violence by the Danish visual artist Peter Brandt. Exhibition opening: 20 August 4-6 pmIn History of Violence, Peter Brandt explores relations between violence, trauma, and gender. The main characters of th
    e exhibition are the Italian filmdirector, author and intellectual Pier Paolo Pasolini and Cuban-American artist Ana Mendieta, who both died under mysterious circumstances. Pasolini was murdered on a beach in Ostia in 1975 and in 1985, Mendieta "fell out" of the window of a 34th-floor apartment in New York.Pasolini is best known for his film Saló, or the 120 Days in Sodom, and Mendieta for her “earth-body” works. Althouth the two main characters of the exhibition never met, Peter Brandt connects them, not only by their deaths, but also through their artistic practices, which respectively often dealt with violence and the body.Based on extensive research in Rome, Ostia, and Bologna and with the Pasolini crime scene as a starting point, the exhibition will examine traces of violence and trauma, materialized in a form of hybrid works between different bodies, narratives and art practices. Brandt produces new works for the exhibition that will use performative actions, archive material, text, photography, video, and textile works.SeminarIn conjunction with the exhibition Galleri Image will organize the seminar Traces of violence, trauma and gender in History of Violence at Kunsthal Aarhus on 25 September from 2 pm to 4.30 pm.

    Photobook Week Aarhus (PWA) will take place 14 - 17 October 2021. In the last 7 years, PWA has become one of the most poignant events about and around the photobook. With a wide selection of exhibitions, talks and debates, PWA represents a continuous stu
    dy of the evolution and role of the medium. The festival has been referred to as- "the Think Tank of the Photobook" and is acclaimed for its atmosphere and spirit. After exploring Flatness (2019), and Seriality (2020), this year’s edition of Photobook Week Aarhus will focus on Movement and Transition. The exhibition program will embrace contemporary themes such as migration, globalization and post-colonial thinking, and artistic movements such as Dada and Fluxus.In collaboration with PWA’s great network of Danish and international museums and libraries, this year we will extend our exhibitions to include art objects, historical travel guides and accounting books, which will be exhibited along with art- and photobooks. With the festival we want to highlight libraries as a room for contemplation, concentration and creativity, where the book can be a source of information as well as a material support for artistic practice. This year we will focus on the production of photobooks in countries such as Greenland, The Caribbean and the Caucasus region. Read more about PWA at http://photobookweek.org/ or keep up with the latest updates on Facebook and Instagram. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Galleri Image founded Photobook Week Aarhus in 2014, and has since collaborated with the Aarhus School of Architecture on organising the festival. PWA focuses on the rapidly growing international interest in photobooks and represents a continuous study of the evolution and role of the medium. PWA presents the photobook to the general public and to individuals who work professionally with photobooks and photography, be it from an artistic, communication-related or academic standpoint. User involvement, openness and dialogue are key words when it comes to the form and content of the festival. For this reason, PWA has placed great emphasis on inviting a large number of exhibitors and speakers who can present the photobook in a cross-disciplinary perspective. This has made it possible to exhibit significant but rare photobooks that have been discussed by researchers, photographers, leading curators, architects and many other qualified contributors from around the world.Photobook Week Aarhus 2021 is supported by The Politiken Foundation, Dreyers Fond, The Obel Family Foundation, the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen), The Frimodt-Heineke Foundation, Instituto Camões and the Portuguese Embassy in Denmark.

    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Good Hope Keepers and The Mirrored Portraits of the Ocean by the Greenlandic photographic artist Inuuteq Storch. The exhibition juxtaposes 19th century Greenland with the Greenland of today. Inuuteq Storch’s own conte
    mporary photographs of his hometown Sisimiut (from the upcoming book "Keepers of the Ocean") are presented alongside the archival project ”Mirrored - Portraits of Good Hope”, where he has gotten a hold of photos by Greenland’s first photographer John "Ujuut" Møller from the period 1889-1935.To Inuuteq Storch, the two series of artworks in the exhibition are a part of a larger effort to promote Greenlandic self expression and postcolonial consciousness about national pride and identity. The exhibition connects the works of the two Greenlandic photographers over a period of more than 100 years and explores the development of the geographic identity as seen from the perspective of its people. Inuuteq Storch grew up in Greenland, where the landscape and weather is dominant and where nature rules over life’s rhythms. But the stories being told about life in this landscape have historically been influenced by Danish travelers, whose views on its nature and its people have affected how they have been portrayed. In Storch’s art he is searching for his own visual narrative, as well as that of other Greenlandic people: How do the images look, when they come from within and not from the outside? In conjunction with the exhibition, Galleri Image will organise the symposium Gazes on Greenland (working titel) on 13 November about Greenlandic identity and culture, with a collection of academics and cultural actors. One of the speakers will be the acclaimed author Niviaq Korneliussen, who has been established as one of the key voices in contemporary Greenlandic literature. The Greenlandic-Latvian visual artist Bolatta Silis-Høegh, who was the curator of the exhibition In Our Lifetime - New Art from Greenland, which included works by Inuuteq Storch, will also participate in the symposium. The symposium will be organised at The Greenlandic House Aarhus in a collaboration between Galleri Image, Aarhus Feminist Collective, Rum46 and Art Weekend Aarhus. Inuuteq Storch will also curate an exhibition about phtobooks from Greenland during this year's Photobook Week Aarhus, which will take place from 14 - 17 October.About the artistInuuteq Storch is a photographic artist with a degree from the International Center of Photography in New York and Fatamorgana in Denmark. His art has been exhibited in Greenland, Denmark, USA, Norway and Columbia. He has also published two photobooks:  Porcelain Souls and Flesh.You can visit the artist's website for more information: www.inuuteqstorch.comThe exhibition is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, The A.P. Møller Foundation, The William Demant Foundation, the Augustinus Foundation and Grosserer L. F. Foghts Fond.
