The SHIFTING FOCUS Photobook Market will focus on books from independent publishers and artists, as well as exclusive rare photo books. There will also be a programme with lectures about self-publishing and art of photo book-making today, as well as book signings.
The venue chosen for the Photo Book Fair is the Projekträume of the renowned Kunsquartier Bethanien, an exhibition space for contemporary art with focus on current social and cultural issues. With its 250sqm facilities surrounded by Kreuzbergs bars and restaurants, this former hospital will host the Photobook Market, introducing the undiscovered and ‚up and coming‘ of the photobooks.
