Fixed on Reality was the main exhibition at Fotobokfestival Oslo 2019. The exhibition presented artists whom all had published a significant photo book project in recent years with a clear political, cultural and personal connection to their projects.
The designated artists for 2019 edition were Rona Yefman, Rafał Milach and Aaron Schuman. In each of their designated containers, they presented a commissioned showcase based on their artistic practice, which was also highly present in and connected to their chosen photo books.
Altering the viewpoint on an established reality, shows that society and its politics are not fixed, but can seemingly be changed or influenced. Hence there is not one unassailable view of the world we live in. What the selected artist books show us is that reality is not fixed; it is co-created.
The main exhibition and edition for 2019 was curated by artist Christina Leithe Hansen.
