WHY WORDS NOW
 
For a discipline named after its engagement of the eye, there is an awful lot of words in the world of visual arts. Why Words Now investigates this paradoxical interdependency of image and language.
 
Why Words Now is a project by artist Simon Dybbroe Møller. It was co-founded by Dybbroe Møller and Helga Just Christoffersen in 2020. Why Words Now is produced by Gisa Pantel
Why Words Now is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
