Towards Intertwined Ways of Telling. A conversation on the genesis of the book "Corbeau".


Published by MACK in 2017, "Corbeau" is part memoir, part tableau - a multi-layered narrative collage tracing life and death in the rural farm on which Swiss artist Anne Golaz grew up. Made over a twelve-year period and bridging three generations, the three-part book weaves together photographs, video stills and drawings, with texts by the author, screenwriter and playwright, Antoine Jaccoud, as well as the artist’s own writings.

Anne Golaz is a Swiss photographer based in Finland. Antoine Jaccoud is a Swiss author, playwright and screenwriter based in Lausanne. Corbeau is their first collaboration.

14.00 - 15.00 lunch break

15.00 - 16.00 Dieter Neubert (DE)
Let’s Read Some Favourite Photobooks


„I feel something like an essence in photography which has been multiplied in a rotary press.“ (Daido Moriyama)
In a traditional understanding, a photobook is just a book that uses photographs to illustrate text-stories, or an exhibition catalogue or a documentation of photographic collections. But a photobook is not just a group of pictures put together, and it is not the sum of its photographs - it is much more. Dieter Neubert will present and speak about some of his personal favourite photobooks.

Dieter Neubert is Founder and Director of the Kassel Fotobookfestival and Founder of the Kassel Photobook and Dummy Awards.

16.00 - 17.00 Alex Bocchetto and Valentina Abenavoli, Akina Books (IT)
Out of Stock - An Adventure in Publishing


The editors and publishers of AKINA Books Alex Bocchetto and Valentina Abenavoli will present the joys and pains of 5 years of publishing photobooks. A love story with printed matter, from zines to collective books, providing an insight into the current photobook market and trends.

AKINA Books is an independent publishing house of photobooks as objects to crease, love, collect. Founded in 2012, it has published more than 35 titles in both hand-made and offset-printed editions from emerging and established photographers.

17.00 - 18.00 Juanan Requena (ES)
The Goal is the Path


An artist talk by Juanan Requena, prolific maker of unique hand-made artist books that often take the form of personal diaries. “I deeply believe that we are all what we can still do: the next challenge, the next step, the white page we´ll fill up with a mixture of fantasy and intuition.” The talk will provide an insight into his creative process and struggles along the way.

Juanan Requena is an artist, book-maker and teacher currently based in Nauchipán, somewhere in Spain.
