Organised by Galleri Image & Aarhus School of Architecture
PWA 2019 is supported by the Politiken Foundation, Dreyers Fond, The Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Instituto Camões via Embassy of Portugal, Nationalbankens Jubilæumsfond, and the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen).
Since 2014, the Aarhus School of Architecture and Galleri Image have collaborated on organising Photobook Week Aarhus or PWA. PWA focuses on the rapidly growing international interest in photobooks in recent years. Photobook Week Aarhus 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, representatives of The Danish School of Media and Journalism, and many other qualified contributors from around the world.
