FOTOBOKFESTIVAL OSLO 2019
12. - 22. SEPTEMBER
RONA YEFMAN / AARON SCHUMAN / RAFAŁ MILACH
FIXED ON REALITY
Fixed on Reality is the main exhibition at Fotobokfestival Oslo 2019. The exhibition presents artists whom all have published a significant photobook project in recent years with a clear political, cultural and personal connection to their projects.
The artists for 2019 are Rona Yefman, Rafał Milach and Aaron Schuman. In each of their designated containers, they present a commissioned showcase based on their artistic practice, which is also highly present in their photobooks.
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.
Alongside the exhibition, a seminar will be held with the title Fixed on Reality – History Shaped in the Present. The seminar will take place across two afternoons at Kulturhuset and will feature photographers and practitioners from other academic fields who have been invited to comment on the general photobook and on specific photobooks presented.
