Guided tour // PREMISES

Guided tour // 17:00 - 18:30

From compelling architecture to the intimate rooms of the domestic space, the structural elements of our surroundings have been a popular subject matter in art since the Renaissance. By the end of the 20th century, interior painting as a genre had become widespread, and the subjects, styles and techniques developed along with historical events and social changes. 

In the group exhibition PREMISES, Martin Asbæk Gallery explores the depictions of our surroundings through the work of photo-based artists such as Trine Søndergaard, Elina Brotherus, Martin Liebscher, and others, exploring the premises of the home, of beliefs and of personal history, all connected with architecture and spaces.


Festival Pass with Benefits

This year your Copenhagen Photo Festival pass not only opens the doors to the many exhibitions and events at the Festival Center on Refshaleøen, it also gives you benefits to other great photographic experiences around the Copenhagen area.

This year you get half price on the entrance to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk during the festival period 2-12 June. Louisiana currently exhibits works by the iconic photographer, Diane Arbus – a rare treat, since she is almost never exhibited in Europe, and definitely worth the beautiful train ride to Humlebæk.

Free entrance to Trine Søndergaard exhibition

South of Copenhagen you can visit Greve Museum’s exhibition Faraway Nearby with new works by the internationally renowned Danish photographer Trine Søndergaard for free – also definitely worth a travel. Especially since  the museum and Trine Søndergaard unfortunately had to cancel the planned tapas and talk event with the artist on 3 June because of the passing away of her mother in law.

However, you can still go on a guided tour of the exhibition 9 june (the participation fee is 50 kr.)

This means, we will present you with a host of exhibitions which will show photography during the summer months. And this is where it gets really good, because at Gl. Strand, you can also use your festival pass to get half price for the first week of the upcoming exhibition by Zanele Muholi.
