As a member of FUTURES Photography, Copenhagen Photo Festival is thrilled to receive the travelling exhibition “On the Verge” and its seven artists.

The exhibition features seven selected international FUTURES talents that each show their take on life on the edge – from the queer environment to coming to terms with Brexit. The exhibition is curated in collaboration between the three FUTURES partner institutions CAMERA (Turin, Italy), Fotofestiwal Lodz (Poland) and Copenhagen Photo Festival (Denmark).

Theme On the Verge

What does it mean to be “On the Verge” in 2023? In this exhibition you will find at least 7 different answers from the 7 photographers selected. As a society but also as individuals we are On the Verge, whether in terms of politics, ecology, identity or communication among other topics. Through more than 70 workpieces/artworks, they tell us personal and collective stories about conflicts, battles for gender equality, food and ecological sustainability or the rise of populism and nationalism across Europe.
