Fotogalleriet is delighted to start the new year with Photobooks Weeks from January 15th to February 15th. During this time the gallery will be turned into an inspiring reading lounge open to the public. The lounge will provide visitors with amazing books from our growing library collection as well as books and discounted goods from our bookshop. In addition to this Fotogalleriet will have exclusive events, including an inspirational photobook-workshop where you can make your own ideas come to life. The workshop will provide both practical information about sourcing materials, various techniques, but also guide its participants through how to develop their ideas into a final product.

On January 25th Siri Hermansen will launch her publication The Economy of Survival at Fotogalleriet. The book is centered on three of Hermansen’s site-specific projects from Tjernobyl, Detroit and Israel/Palestine – where she contemplates the importance of social, environmental and socio-political issues in our contemporary society. Containing photos, video stills and in-depth theoretical texts, the book presents each project individually through the eyes of Hermansen and her critical perspectives.

Marte Aas is a Norwegian artist that works mainly with photography and film, her interests include observing humans in connection with the urban landscape.

STAFETT: 09.02.-15.02.2018. Launch: 09.02.2018, 19.00
Lene Ask (NO), JH Engström (SE), Mattias Härenstam (SE/NO), Emil Salto (DK), Lina Selander (SE), Tomas Lagermand Lundme (DK) og Nina Strand (NO)

Stafett is a project based on an artists collaboration between Danish artist Tomas Lagermand Lundme, Swedish artist JH Engström and Norwegian artist, writer and editor Nina Strand. Together they produced the art fanzine Militær from 2006-2009, a photocopy fanzine where Lundme, Engström and Strand all submitted their own work within a shared concept. The project was meant to be a common ground for Scandinavian photographers.

On May 1st 2016, Lundme, Engström and Strand invited seven artists to participate in an artistic stafett. A shared mail thread from May 1st 2016, which officially ended on May 1st 2017, is the starting point of Stafett as a publication and an exhibition at Fotogalleriet. The exhibition will also include new films by Mattias Härenstam and Lina Selander in separate rooms.

The artists’ publication will be released February 2nd at 7pm.
