BPB and Photobook Show
As part of its fifth edition, the Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 invites the submission of self-published, handmade or short run photography books, to be included as part of a photobook Exhibition at Brighton’s Jubilee Library throughout the Biennial (6 October – 4 November 2012) in collaboration with Photobook Show. The only criteria is that the book relates to the Biennial’s theme: Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space.
Each photobook project should focus in some way on the diverse image cultures resulting from recent efforts to reimagine urban spaces through their occupation, and assess a range of historical and contemporary practices in light of the wider discussions they raise. It sets out to probe at the distinctions that separate art and activism, and pose questions as to whether – and in what circumstances – images can serve as agents of social and political change.
BPB12 aims to provide a critical space within which to think about relationships between the political occupation of physical sites and the production and dissemination of images.
BPB 12 will be working in association with Photobook Show (www.photobookshow.co.uk), a Brighton based arts organisation set up to raise the profile of artist-led photobooks, with particular focus on self-published or hand-crafted works. After the BPB12 show all photobooks submitted will become part of Photobook Show’s archive, an ever growing collection of self-published and hand-crafted photobooks that is accessible to the public and forms a part of regular shows and exhibitions held by Photobook Show.
If you are working on or have recently completed a photobook that you feel meets this years theme Agents of Change: Photography and the Politics of Space then please complete this online form http://goo.gl/H9rtc and post your book, clearly labelled:
58-67 Grand Parade,
before the 7th of September.
All books submitted will be reviewed by Photoworks and Photobook Show and successful candidates will be notified by the 15th September. Submitted books will not be returned but will become part of Photobook Show’s archive.
Please note: The organisers reserve the right to use images and videos of entries for publicity and documentary material, printed and online. Photobook Show and Photoworks makes no claim on the copyright of entries.
