The programme is extensive and multifaceted and consisting of so many exhilarating strands.
Come to Unseen Photo Fair at Westergasfabriek
The main photography fair takes place is the Gashouder, the magnificent cylindrical-shaped hall. Here, there are exhibitions from 53 galleries from all over the world. This is the focal point that connects photographers, aspiring artists, curators and photography enthusiasts on a world-class level.
Here you can marvel at the ground-breaking masterpieces of 142 established and emerging artists and photographers. Many artists present their premieres at the fair.
Unseen Living Room
In the living room, you can encounter presentations and discussions on contemporary photography. The influential speakers and insights strive to inspire and educate. This year’s Unseen Living Room is co-produced by the Barbican, London and the Tucson Center for Creative Photography, Arizona.
The CO-OP is a relatively new element in the Unseen programme, dedicated to artist-run collectives wherein artists present new challenging and pioneering works of art and new commercial formats. This year’s CO-OP will launch 13 new international collectives.
Unseen Book Market
Over 60 independent book publishers offer their unique photography publications at the Unseen Book Market, many of which are a result of creatives experimenting with the printed and bound formats. There will be impromptu book launches, book signings and discussions.
