August 31 - September 10
In a photobook exhibition / library curated by Bjørnmyr & Mariner, new titles and rare books will be on display, including books from artists all around the world. The books in the exhibition present the audience with an introduction into projects and topics including obsessive bread collecting, the scrutinisation of national security systems, categorising the vehicles of suicide bombers, the use of photography by totalitarian regimes, seized contraband articles and deceivingly accurate psudoscientific archives of animals and natural objects. Each artist included in this year's photobook exhibition provides us with their own unique take on the archival process, which should not be understood literally, but rather put into doubt, and to raise multi-layered questions about themes around experience and memory, authenticity and authorship, and how history can be depicted.
