After being on display at the Fotobok Gbg 15, The Library Project’s collection will later travel to Denmark, to join the Photobook Week Aarhus 2015, 8-10 October. The books will be displayed at the gorgeous Library of the Aarhus School of Architecture. The 40 Irish photobooks shown in Aarhus will be complemented with some of the latest international arrivals to the collection, like Ron Jude’s Lago, Carlos Spottorno’s Wealth Management, or JH Engström’s Långt Från Stockholm.

The Photobook Week Aarhus, celebrating its second edition this year, it is a fine example of how collaboration amongst diverse cultural organisations can foster great results. The event is put together with the efforts of Gallery Image, The Jutland Art Academy, and The Aarhus School of Architecture, with Aarhus School of Architecture’s Library as the main venue, and it is curated by international experts, under the direction of indpendent curator Moritz Neumüller.
