Bread and Butter Bookshop (2023)
Fotobook DUMMIES Day
MOMENTUM 12: TOGETHER AS TO GATHER
Curated by Tenthaus
Date: 10 June - 8 October 2023
Location: Galleri F 15
Fotobook DUMMIES Day focuses on image and self-publishing, with a practice of connecting communities, facilitating dialogue, and using unconventional exhibition spaces.
This time, we are going to open up the Galleri F15 Library, which is usually closed to the public, to turn it into an on-site specific project called "Bread and Butter Bookshop". We're using reading, chatting, and self-publishing to spark a conversation: Is the desire to own a photobook similar to buying bread or butter for daily consumption?
Our aim with Bread and Butter Bookshop is to expand the "book space" into the "exhibition space". We will extend and hitchhike the mechanism of the biennale by connecting alternative space, workshops, and self-publishing - Bread and Butter Bookshop, Open Edit Table, and collective photobook review Abstract - as the exhibiting method. We hope to explore the desire to read photobooks from afar and discover how to unfold them in a new place from both the makers' and readers' perspectives.
