Fotobokfestival Oslo 2019 is a week-long event aiming to explore the photobook as an artistic medium and phenomenon via exhibitions, seminars and artist talks. Alongside the main exhibition of the festival, we invite several other institutions to participate in our program with their own exhibitons and events. 

The festival was established by Forbundet Frie Fotografer in 2009 and continues to feature widely recognized art photographers and young, new participants in photography, the photo book genre, and publishing activity nationally and internationally. It takes place in Oslo every September and is free and open to all. 

The curator of this years Fotobokfestival is Christina Leithe Hansen. Leithe Hansen graduted from Malmö kunstakademi and works mainly in the fields of photography and video. She has had several solo exhibitions nationally and internationally including Breadfield in Malmö, Heimdal Kunstforening, Akershus Kunstsenter and Galleri Maria Veie. Group exhibitions includes Statens Kunstutstilling at Kunstnernes Hus, Charlottenborg Kunsthall, Kunstnerforbundet and Henningsens Contemporary.
