The University of Groningen commissioned Sacha de Boer to take photos of the Groningen DNA. Her exhibition is entitled ‘Samen 400 jaar!’ (400 years together!) De Boer’s pictures included campaign images for ten events, and resulted in an open-air exhibition in public spaces in Groningen city centre throughout the anniversary month (now to order them). De Boer also compiled a series of low-threshold documentary photos depicting the Northern and socially relevant themes healthy ageing, energy and sustainable society. They were simply worded in the slogans: ‘400 years of good health’, ‘400 years of energy’ and ‘400 years in balance’. The photos were printed on banners, which adorned the city centre.
