Nuuk, Greenland, 2018

In 2018 I begun a new project - New Nuuk. I will work on it till 2030. In this multidisciplinary project I explore the urbanization of Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, situated close to the polar circle.

It is estimated that in 2030 the population of Nuuk is 30 000. Now it is around 17 000. The city is changing rapidly, with new suburbs being built amid the barren and majestic landscape. Why is Nuuk experiencing such a change? Many remote, small villages do not offer a means of living any more. New investments regarding the use of natural resources attract people. It is estimated that also tourism will increase. Climate change is visible also in a way like this.

I will focus on visual research - how the changes look and feel like. I will collaborate with activists and researchers from different areas. My next visit to Nuuk will be in 2019.
