  • Simulacrum II

    [8 Sep - 28 Oct]

    Noorderlicht | House of Photography and the Frisian Museum present 'Simulacrum II'. In the photo exhibition in the Frisian Museum five artists can be seen who manipulate reality. In their work the boundary between real and unreal is hardly recognizable.

    Photography is no longer reliable when it comes to the representation of reality. Many of the images in our environment have been manipulated. The advertising world uses digital models and in films completely different worlds are created. The artists in this exhibition investigate the feasibility of reality, each in their own way.

  • Society and Change in Northern Ghana

    [15 -21 Sep 2018]

    Noorderlicht | House of Photography worked for the last three years with Ghanaian and international photographers on a visual documentation about Ghana. Since its independence in 1957, the West African country has never experienced a disruptive crisis, making it an interesting example for developments in the region. With the project, consisting of an exhibition during the NUKU photo festival in Ghana and a photo book, leading photographers provide insight into the society and landscape of Ghana.
