We are super excited that a wide selection of our books has been curated for the photobook exhibition focusing on the independent publishing scene. The exhibition, which is part of the Fotograf Festival in Prague, is curated by Michael Reitter-Kollmann.
The exhibition There is a riot going on focuses on the changes that the photobook has undergone over the last decade. Photography in book format has always been an important part of photographic history. Due to the digital transformation and the resulting changes in the structures of the publishing industry, however, a cultural revolution has taken place. It was no longer the large publishing houses that set the tone, but a scene of individualist personalities emerged who founded their own small publishing houses. Through their direct marketing strategy and their non-commercial orientation, they provided a stage for artistic photographic positions that have strongly influenced the way artistic photography has been seen in recent years.
