Anders Juhl

Music producer, Art organizer and Fundraiser

I have a professional background as a music producer, songwriter, composer/musician, and academic scholar. Increasingly I have been pulled into the world of contemporary visual art through my wife, artist and curator Michelle Eistrup.

As a Danish citizen and resident, my overall agenda is to open up the minds of people in this area of the world. That is why I have recently spent time preparing, organizing and fundraising for the collaborative project NotAboutKarenBlixen.

One of this projects aims is to bring about a postcolonial discussion in Denmark through the Danish author Karen Blixen, who in Denmark has an idealized iconic status. Karen Blixen's picture of Africa and especially Kenya has had and still has a great impact on the way the West thinks of Africa. How can we deal with this intellectual part of our past as colonialists, and is a contemporary look at the Karen Blixen figure a key to make Danish intellectuals and others start reflecting more deeply about this past? I hope so.

Another project I work for on organizational level is called Face á Face, a collaborative project between Danish and Senegalese artists, that will be presented at the Dak´art Off Biennal. The project was started up by Michelle Eistrup and Ousseynou Wade, and is curated by Michelle Eistrup and Senegalese artist Amadou Kan Sy.
