Leth begins casting for Life in Denmark 2

In 1972 Jørgen Leth made a documentary film called 'Life in Denmark', in which he wanted to show the world "a number of clear, authentic and beautiful images from this strange country." Today, 40 years later, Leth has decided that it is due time to take another look at life in Denmark. What has changed? Who are we today? 
Leth begins his casting for the film shortly. For more information, please visit DR and see the tv clip from yesterday, in which Leth tells us more about the film and the casting process.

Upcoming Leth exhibition at Gl. Strand

The reknown art association Gl. Strand, situated in the charming channel area in the old city center of Copenhagen, will soon host an extensive retrospective exhibition of Jorgen Leth's ouvre. 
'My name is Jørgen Leth / Art Moves #2' is a unique presentation of Leth's diverse expressions - from sound bites to pictures to video excerpts to oral narration, focusing on both the artist and the person Jørgen Leth - two identities seemingly inseparable.
Gl. Strand says: 'For decades and decades, Leth has constantly challenged the barriers between life and art, media and people with his great combination of dynamic creativity and an open mind."
The exhibition will open on the 27th of April 2012. For more information, please visit Gl. Strand
