Danh Vo

Danh Vo (b. 1975) is a Danish artist, who left Vietnam as a refugee with his family to live in Europe in 1979. His work is an intersection between art, global history and personal diary. A key characteristic in his works is the re-appropriation of authorship and historical events - Vo’s works are often inspired by his own experiences and include ready-made objects, which, through the context of a particular exhibition, become part of a historical narrative. In many of his pieces, his own life as a gay man and a Vietnam War refugee comes to light. Today, Vo currently lives and works in Berlin and Mexico.
