Photobook Week Aarhus is a photo book festival that convey the photo book in a current and historical perspective to the general public as well as to those who work professionally with the photo book and the photo. Therefore, we have invited nationally and internationally recognized exhibitors and speakers, who can communicate the photo book in an interdisciplinary perspective.

The festival allows the audience to experience and participate in a vital area of ​​the art scene. In a world where almost everyone contributes to the global image flow through social media, the festival can draw attention to how the physical photo book allows for a rare immersion.

The festival represents a continuous study of the media's development and focuses on the increasing international interest in photo books that has emerged in recent years. 

This year's edition will be on The Virtual and the physical, using the technological axis to describe the importance of the digital turn for the book. 

The Photobook Week Aarhus is an open forum of discussion around the medium, featuring exhibitions, artist talks, lectures, debates and conversations, during a weekend packed with interesting events.
