Photobooks. Art Page by Page

The definition of the photobook is as broad as that of photography, and ranges from handmade unique objects to smaller and larger print runs, from self-publishing and zines to rare, elaborately designed and bound editions. The exhibition shows a selection of 45 German and international photobooks from the last decades, with a focus on exceptional concepts, design and presentations. The interaction between photography, material, binding, form, and format offers many possibilities for experimentation and demonstrates the potential of the photo- book as an artistic medium on its own.
