Seen from this perspective, the part of the festival that relates to architecture, the part I am responsible for, will specifically discuss the construction of different normative frames of understanding for architecture, urban areas and landscapes and their significance to ideal conceptions of how society can be arranged and developed. The part of the festival that relates to architecture comprises three exhibitions: Pictures of Denmark: Sigvart Werner’s ”Danmarksbillede”; Danish Welfare Architecture and Its Image; and The Company Photobook.
The festival programme also includes exhibitions on Fluxus books, photobooks and their connections with film editing, photobooks by Korean visual artist Kyungwoo Chun, photobooks and zines from Greenland, Central European Photobooks, Portuguese photobooks, Caribbean photobooks as well as shortlisted photobook dummies from the 2021 Kassel Photobook Award and the Hong Kong Photobook Festival’s Photobook Dummy Award 2021.
Presentations and discussions by international and Danish photobook experts will put the themes of the exhibitions into perspective.”
