Face, Head and Shoulders - contemporary portrait photography in the face of time, in Denmark

"...Discover new sides of photography when 26 young, international artists show whimsical and complex work in the group exhibition "Face, Head and Shoulders".

The Danish photography scene is dominated by both documentary and journalistic photography. The ‘Face, Head and Shoulders’ exhibition seeks to present how the traditional portrait is re-interpreted by young artists. The Kodret collective is displaying no less than three approaches that will both appeal to an international and local Danish public alike.

Carlsberg’s Ny Tap is home to a pop-up gallery, the main exhibition of which is 'Face, Head and Shoulders' and the Kunsthalle Nikolaj is running a slide show exhibition including a public reading by Dutch blogger and curator Hester Keijser (Mrs. Deane). The exhibition ends with a public reading and a panel discussion about DIY art book publishing with publishers David Schoerner (Hassla Books) and Mårten Lange (Farewell Books).

Lodret is a collective of visual artists Flemming Ove Bech and Johan Rosenmunthe.
