We are proud to present this year´s festival programme, which is a result of unique collaborations as part of our efforts to highlight the photobook as an artistic expression.The Fotobokfestival Oslo 2015 will present exhibitions curated by the PhotoBookMuseum (DE), taking place at Youngstorget, Fotogalleriet and the Goethe-Institut. The PhotoBookMuseum Mobile Edition for Fotobokfestival Oslo 2015 features Carlos Spottorno (ES), Carolyn Drake (US), Oliver Sieber (DE), Ricardo Cases (ES), Ali Taptik (TR) Andrea Diefenbach (DE) and Ed van der Elsken (NL). Also, the Café Lehmitz as Anders Petersen (SE) saw it, does not exist anymore, but for the PhotoBookMuseum Mobile Edition it celebrates a revival in the form of a walk-in reconstruction and fully functional bar placed at Youngstorget together with the other containers.

The shortlisted books from the International Photobook Dummy Award (Fotobookfestival Kassel) and Nordic Dummy Award (Fotogalleriet, Oslo) are exhibited at Fotogalleriet during Fotobokfestival Oslo.
