The Censored Exhibition

Group exhibition in Photo City

The Censored Exhibition seeks to present a contemporary selection of international fine art photography based on an open call. Approximately 50 works will be selected by an international independant jury, consisting of a visual artist, a critic and a curator, and exhibited in Photo City during Copenhagen Photo Festival June 6-16 2019. The exhibition is part of one of the festival’s three main programmes, Framing Vision, which focuses on the aesthetics and techniques of photographic expression.

As selected photographer for The Censored Exhibition your work will be exhibited at Copenhagen Photo Festival 2019 (6-16 June). The exhibition is located in Photo City – which is the heart of the festival.

Through guided tours as well as online promotions and invitations to curators, gallerists etc. from all over the world, the festival aims to promote the photographers exhibited to a broad, dedicated audience as well as critics and curators. Many of the photographers who have been selected previously are recognized today, and we also encourage all selected photographers to visit the festival and become part of the community surrounding the festival. All selected photographers will be invited to a meet n’ greet as well as other events together with other exhibitors, curators and juror members. This is a unique opportunity to become part of a community and expand your network, not only within Denmark, but also to the rest of the world.

The selected photographers also get the chance to sell their work at a special auction event. Copenhagen Photo Festival collaborates with the recognized Danish auction house Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers on an auction in Photo City on the last day of the festival. This is 100% voluntary to participate in. The auction is open online at throughout the festival period (June 6-16), and the online bids will then be transferred from the homepage to a live auction on the last day of the festival. The auction focuses on the many qualities of photographic art and gives old as well as new art collectors the opportunity to acquire contemporary handpicked photographic art, whilst shedding light on new emerging art photography.
