Photobook Week Aarhus

Save the date: Photobook Week Aarhus 2018. The 5th edition of Photobook Week Aarhus will take place between the 4th and the 7th of October, with the events hosted at the Aarhus School of Architecture, Galleri Image, ARoS, Dokk1 and there will be pop-up exhibitions in exclusive designshops like Verpan. 

The photobook festival convey the photo book in a current and historical perspective to the general public as well as those who work professionally with the photo book and the photograph. We have therefore invited a large number of nationally and internationally recognized exhibitors, lecturers, photographers, photo researchers, publishers, architects and leading curators, who can communicate the photo book in an interdisciplinary perspective.

The festival thus represents a continuous study of the media's development and focuses on the increasing international interest in photo books that has emerged in recent years.

The audience can experience and participate in a vital area of ​​the art scene. In a world where almost everyone contributes to the global image flow through social media, the festival draws attention to how the physical photo book allows for a rare immersion.  

This year's theme is all about the virtual and the physical, using the technological axis to describe the importance of the digital turn for the book. 

The Photobook Week Aarhus is an open forum of discussion around the medium, featuring exhibitions, artist talks, lectures, debates and conversations, during a weekend packed with interesting events. 

This year Photobook Week Aarhus Dummy Award will be launched, which allows the winner to publish his or her own photobook at a acknowledged publisher!
