In a few weeks, Kunsthal Charlottenborg will present a solo exhibition featuring French-Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa. Working in the field where documentary and fiction intersect, Bourouissa uses photography, rap music and other modes of expression to call attention to the peripheries of society and challenge the mainstream media’s portrayals of young people from ethnic minority backgrounds. Widely exhibited around the world, the artist was awarded the British Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize last year.
