Copenhagen Photo Festival // 6-16 June

Explore the 2024 edition

Copenhagen Photo Festival returns 6-16 June 2024! Join us to celebrate photography all over the Danish capital for the 15th time – this time with a particular focus on the overarching theme of ‘entanglement’. We look forward to engaging with artists, photographers, collaborators, partners and the large community of art and photography enthusiasts to explore its many dynamics and celebrate photography again in June.

Entanglement · 2024 OVERARCHING THEME

The overarching theme for the 2024 festival edition is ‘entanglement’. A word or concept which refers to the way we are correlated over space and time to each other. To how we can have a mutual relationship or connection, in which one thing affects or depends on another. To the footprint that we leave, more or less intentionally.

The thought of being interconnected or interdependent can seem basic. In the sense that it is something which happens in our everyday life – whenever I do something it impacts my surroundings or relations, but it can also create reverberations that I did not foresee. With the word ‘entanglement’ we wish to focus even more closely on how we today seem to be not just connected in neat and nice networks or webs that we can observe, adjust and control.
