Photobook Week Aarhus 2017


At the Aarhus School of Architecture, and Godsbanen/Mørkekammeret

2pm—Photobook Dummy Doctoring Workshop

Are you an artist with an unpublished photobook? Then bring your dummy and self-published book to have them reviewed by a panel of international experts. The popular Photobook Dummy Doctoring Workshop will allow artists to present their dummies to international professionals to gain valuable feedback and advice.

Bookmaking has become a more democratic process, available to everyone, and has also converged with other media such as photography, architecture, and even time-based media forms. The aim of the Dummy Doctoring Workshop is to introduce a wider audience to the concept of self-publishing, and to help the artists take their projects to another level.

Date: 21 September, from 2pm to 4pm
Aarhus School of Architecture, Nørreport 20, Aarhus.

Duration: Each doctoring session lasts 20-30 minutes.
Registration fee: Normal rate, 100 DKK – SPECIAL RATE for bookings done by midnight 12 September: 75 DKK

1pm—Cyanotype Workshop (Godsbanen/Mørkekammeret)

Cyanotype Workshop with artist Claudia Hausfeld
The workshop will explore the photographic technique called cyanotype, a medium which can be used without dark room or developing chemicals.  The cyanotype can be used to make quick copies of semi-transparent or solid materials such as film, drawings on tracing paper, or plants, among others. This is done by contact printing on UV sensitised paper. During the workshop, the participants will learn to coat the paper with light sensitive chemicals and print translucent objects or images by exposing them to sunlight.

Claudia Hausfeld is based in Iceland and her work can be seen in the group exhibition This Island Earth which is currently on display at Galleri Image.

Date: Sunday 24 September, from 1pm to 4pm
Godsbanen (Mørkekammeret), Skovgaardsgade 3, Aarhus.
Spaces: 10 places – first come, first served.
Registration fee: Free but there will be a fee for the materials.
What’s provided: Materials provided will be: paper, chemicals, brushes, glass sheets, and facilities. Participants are asked to bring anything printable (flat objects, fabric, film, etc.), but no larger than an A3 sheet.
