In order to examine these and other important issues like photography as an art form, xenophobia, or self-staging even further, the festival will be holding various events, workshops, seminars, photo walks, portfolio reviews, an auction, and a contest. According to the festival’s Director Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen, the anniversary will highlight Danish photographers from the old masters to young award-winning talents. Apart from observing the past and present state of Danish photography, the attendants will be able to see and enjoy first-hand works by highly acclaimed foreign photographers.
This year, the festival centre will be spread over Copenhagen’s raw and vibrant district Refshaleøen, where containers will be transformed into galleries, and the festival’s participants can look forward to various exciting activities in collaboration with Reffen – street food, Copenhagen Contemporary art centre, and others. Moreover, museums, cultural institutions, and diverse art spaces will be hosting exhibitions all over Copenhagen. Since there are many exhibitions going on, we’ve chosen our top ten so you don’t have to.
