Presented simultaneously at two different venues, CCCB (Montalegre 5) and Fundación Foto Colectània (Julián Romea 6), this exhibition explores the recent popularity of the photobook. Nowadays more photobooks are produced, bought, sold, swapped and collected than ever before. The impact is undeniable; both the publishing industry and the art world are experiencing a resurgence of interest in printed work, even at the height of the digital era. This trend has led many artists to use photobooks as a platform for experimentation and creativity. ‘Photobook Phenomenon’ is the first of its kind, showcasing the various visions put forth by key personalities within the genre. The display thus becomes a dialogue between different perspectives on the medium. The challenge of displaying a photobook is also tackled by the curators, who use a number of interactive systems that make it possible to look through and connect with the book and its photographs from diverse viewpoints.
