Theme day

Photography in Print & Circulation. Part II: The Writing of History

The book is an integrated and important part of photography, and the interest in the history of the photo book is an expanding field. It started in early 2000 with Andrew Roth¿s Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books in the Twenties Century (2001), and the exhibition and publication Open Book at the Hasselblad Centre (2004). Martin Parr and Garry Badger have made groundbreaking contributions with their series History of the Photo Book, Volume I, II and III (published 2004¿2014). They have been followed by a number of books and exhibitions focusing on national histories of the photo book.

Now it is time to look critically on the histories that have been produced during the last decade. What perspectives have guided the histories? How have they been mediated and ¿ most importantly ¿ what is still to be done? The symposium will address these important questions.

The symposium is part of Photography in Print & Circulation, a joint research project between the Hasselblad Foundation and Valand Academy and is taking place during the photobookfestival Fotobok Gbg 17.
