The Censored Exhibition

Presenting new fine art photography

The Censored Exhibition is a group show that seeks to present a contemporary selection of international fine art photography. Around 60 works produced within the past two years will be selected by an international jury based on an open call. This year the jury consists of Kristine Kern, director of Fotografisk Center, Alain Bieber, artistic director of NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, and Ángel Luis González Fernández, founder and CEO of PhotoIreland Festival. The works will be exhibited at Copenhagen Photo Festival June 4-14 2020. The exhibition is part of the festival’s programme pillar Framing Vision, which focuses on the aesthetics and techniques of photographic expression.

As part of The Censored Exhibition, your work will be exhibited at the 2020 edition of Copenhagen Photo Festival, Scandinavia’s largest photo festival, right in the festival centre. The festival centre is located at Refshaleøen, an island in Copenhagen with an industrial history. The raw atmosphere has made the island a creative centre with art institutions such as Copenhagen Contemporary, theatres, food markets and cultural events which draws an audience from the entire world.

Through guided tours as well as online promotions and invitations to curators and gallerists from all over the world, the festival aims to promote the photographers exhibited to a broad, dedicated audience as well as to critics and curators. Many of the photographers who have been selected previously are recognized today, and we encourage all exhibiting artists and photographers to visit the festival and become part of its community. 

As a part of The Censored Exhibition you also get the chance to sell your work at an auction event on the last day of the festival. This event is planned in collaboration with the highly recognized Danish auction house Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers and takes place at the art centre, Copenhagen Contemporary. It is 100% voluntary to participate in the auction, which will be open online at throughout the festival period. All online bids will be transferred to the live auction on the day of the event.
