Photobook Week 2023 will celebrate the positive things of life.
Photobook Week Aarhus, our yearly festival exploring the wonderful world of the photobook, turns ten this year! Join us from 2 – 5 November 2023, when we celebrate our anniversary with one of our most ambitious programs to date.
Galleri Image, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, Aarhus School of Architecture, Dokk1 Library and HEART – Herning Museum of Contemporary Art will once again house a wide variety of curious, creative, and thought-provoking exhibitions, talks and workshops.
Under the theme Future Revisited, Photobook Week 2023 will be a celebration of what is worth saving in times of trouble. We do not deny that our planet is suffering from our actions and things are getting worse every day. Still, we propose a fresh look and a new wave of optimism to encourage artists to shape a new discourse around things such as Climate Change and Artificial Intelligence.
Please find our Open Call for artists working with AI for series, books, dummies, and projects with a minimum of 20 images and a narrative structure based on the power of visual literacy. The Call is connected to this year’s festival theme and open until October 9, 2023. Participants will receive a special discount for our workshop programme, organized in collaboration with The Curator Ship Academy. Artists and renown public speakers Boris Eldagsen and paula roush will give insights into how to use AI in image making and photobook publishing.
Photobook Week Aarhus 2023 is made possible by the City of Aarhus (Kulturudviklingspuljen), The Dreyers Foundation, The Politiken Foundation, Instituto Camões, Portugal’s Embassy in Denmark, The Nordea Foundation and Institut Français Danemark.
