    Photobook Week Aarhus (PWA) will take place 14 - 17 October 2021. In the last 7 years, PWA has become one of the most poignant events about and around the photobook. With a wide selection of exhibitions, talks and debates, PWA represents a continuous stu
    dy of the evolution and role of the medium. The festival has been referred to as "the Think Tank of the Photobook" and is acclaimed for its atmosphere and spirit. This year's Photobook Week Aarhus will explore the theme of Movement and Transition. The festival offers a wide range of exciting exhibitions, talks, book markets, and presentations on locations throughout the city centre of Aarhus and an opening at HEART - Museum of Contemporary Art in Herning.The events will take place in Galleri Image, Aarhus School of Architecture, ARoS, Godsbanen and HEART.Through the theme Movement and Transition the exhibition program and talks will embrace contemporary themes such as migration, globalization and post-colonial thinking. Artistic movements such as Dada and Fluxus, and an analysis of photographers’ libraries, to highlight their role as sources of inspiration will also be subjects of matter in the festival. Genres such as historic travel guides and company books will be just as important as art publications, and we will highlight the international book production eg. in the Caribbean and Greenland.During PWA 2021, Galleri Image will present three separate exhibitions; Breathing Images by Korean visual artist Kyungwoo Chun, Eye to Eye curated by Greenlandic photograph Inuuteq Storch and Not Bliss But Relief curated by Russian/Dutch curator and artist Daria Tuminas. The three artists will all make a presentation on their exhibition and participate in a talk.In the new buildings of Aarhus School of Architecture, the exhibitions Portugal Year Zero, curated by José Luis Neves and A Day Full of Miracles, curated by Adam Mazur, will be at show. Futhermore, there will be discussions with titles like Danish Welfare Architecture in Photography and Photobooks and Photographs and Photobooks, where experts in architecture will participate. The architecture school will facilitate the exhibition REMIX: Printed matter from the Caribbean, curated by photographer and curator Nadia Huggins from the Grenadines. The exhibition seeks to invite the viewer to reimagine and re-contextualize the image of the Caribbean, through the diverse printed matter produced by various contemporary artists from the region.At ARoS Art Museum, we will among other present the exhibition The Company Photobook, curated by Thomas Wiegand and Bart Sorgedrager. It will be possible to experience Moritz Neumüller and Jesper Rasmussen in conversation with Lars Movin, on Fluxus books and the Danish Fluxus scene.Other important events include among other the Page Turner workshop with paula roush, and our annual Sunday Book Market, with photobooks from roughly 50 different publishers, bookmakers and booksellers. The Book Market will take place in Remisen at Godsbanen, where the participants will exhibit and sell their books. Futhermore, there will be short presentations by some of the praticipants of the workshop.

PWA focuses on the rapidly growing international interest in photobooks and represents a continuous study of the evolution and role of the medium. PWA presents the photobook to the general public and to individuals who work professionally with photobooks and photography, be it from an artistic, communication-related or academic standpoint. User involvement, openness and dialogue are key words when it comes to the form and content of the festival. For this reason, PWA has placed great emphasis on inviting a large number of exhibitors and speakers who can present the photobook in a cross-disciplinary perspective. This has made it possible to exhibit significant but rare photobooks that have been discussed by researchers, photographers, leading curators, architects and many other qualified contributors from around the world.Photobook Week Aarhus 2021 is supported by The Politiken Foundation, Dreyers Fond, The Obel Family Foundation, the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen), The Frimodt-Heineke Foundation, Instituto Camões and the Portuguese Embassy in Denmark.

  • From October 22, 2021 16:00 to December 19, 2021 17:00
    Opening:
    At: Galleri Image Vestergade 29, 8000 Aarhus, Danmark
    Galleri Image presents the exhibition Good Hope Keepers and The Mirrored Portraits of the Ocean by the Greenlandic artist Inuuteq Storch. Exhibition opening: 22 October 4-6 pmThe exhibition juxtaposes 19th century Greenland with the Greenland of today. In
    uuteq Storch’s own contemporary photographs of his hometown Sisimiut (from the upcoming book "Keepers of the Ocean") are presented alongside the archival project ”Mirrored - Portraits of Good Hope”, where he has gotten a hold of photos by Greenland’s first photographer John "Ujuut" Møller from the period 1889-1935.To Inuuteq Storch, the two series of artworks in the exhibition are a part of a larger effort to promote Greenlandic self expression and postcolonial consciousness about national pride and identity. The exhibition connects the works of the two Greenlandic photographers over a period of more than 100 years and explores the development of the geographic identity as seen from the perspective of its people. Inuuteq Storch grew up in Greenland, where the landscape and weather is dominant and where nature rules over life’s rhythms. But the stories being told about life in this landscape have historically been influenced by Danish travelers, whose views on its nature and its people have affected how they have been portrayed. In Storch’s art he is searching for his own visual narrative, as well as that of other Greenlandic people: How do the images look, when they come from within and not from the outside?In connection with the opening of the exhibition the book, Inuuteq Storch: John Møller - Mirrored, Portraits of Good Hope published by Roulette Russe, will be launched.Inuuteq Storch at Photobook Week AarhusInuuteq Storch will also curate an exhibition at Galleri Image during Photobook Week Aarhus, which will take place 14-17 October. The exhibition Eye to Eye shows photobooks from Greenlandic and international artists and tells a story about Greenland in pictures seen from the perspective of the Greenlandic people.Symposium: Gazes on GreenlandIn conjunction with the exhibition, a symposium will be arranged, Gazes on Greenland, about different points of view on Greenlandic art, which will take place at The Greenlandic House Aarhus. The symposium is arranged in a collaboration between Galleri Image, Aarhus Feminist Collective, rum46, and Art Weekend Aarhus.

The participants are, the Greenlandic-Latvian visual artist and curator Bolatta Silis-Høegh, the Danish visual artist Anne Haaning, Stine Lundberg Hansen, former dissemination director and curator at the Nuuk Art Museum, and Inuuteq Storch himself, among others.About the artistInuuteq Storch (b. 1989) lives and works in Greenland.
