It is impossible to imagine a history of photography without the photobook: this contemporary but still undervalued art form has had a significant impact on the way we look at, consume and approach photography. in our times, in which the existence of books seems threatened by the digital, the photo book is experiencing a boom. The interplay between photography, material, binding, form, and format offers endless possibilities for experiments and is perceived and appreciated not only by the photographers themselves, but also by the public as an independent artistic medium.
The exhibition curated by Calin Kruse / dienacht Publishing presents a selection of national and international photobooks of the last decades, and it will be accompanied by a range of events.
