It is exciting for us to announce, “PHOTOBOOK AS OBJECT / PHOTOBOOK WHO CARES” will be participating in “Tokyo Art Book Fair 2019” from 12th to 15th July this year. As a team of artists, we will take part in this event for our fifth time and the book fair will be held in the newly refurbished MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART TOKYO, that has just reopened in March 2019.
“PHOTOBOOK AS OBJECT / PHOTOBOOK WHO CARES” is form by participants from various photobook events held by Reminders Photography Stronghold. This includes photobook workshops, masterclass, and atlas lab workshops.
How do you visually represent complex and multifaceted “reality”? This is a key notion we explore through the photobook medium. Our narratives does not only consist of pictures. We gather content through various approaches and weave it into a multilayered story. Some of these elements includes format of the book, paper, tactile devices and circulation number that reflect the theme of the work. We believe that a photobook has a vital presence in art that allows readers to reveal and understand another’s reality.
We offer limited edition artist books handmade by artists from printing to bookbinding. Our books often leads into popular editions that published by reputable publishers and are highly regarded in international platforms, such as photobook and dummy book awards.
During the book fair, there will be opportunities for some of the artist to be present at the venue and have direct conversations with you. We look forward to your visit and hope you have some wonderful encounter with our books.
We will introduce artworks created by participating artists through Facebook soon.
