The exhibition THERE IS A RIOT GOIN ON focuses on the changes that the photobook has undergone over the last decade. Photography in book format has always been an important part of photographic history. Due to the digital transformation and the resulting changes in the structures of the publishing industry, however, a cultural revolution has taken place. It was no longer the large publishing houses that set the tone, but a scene of individualist personalities emerged who founded their own small publishing houses. Through their direct marketing strategy and their non-commercial orientation, they provided a stage for artistic photographic positions that have strongly influenced the way artistic photography has been seen in recent years.
On display at the exhibition are books from independent publishers such as: DIENACHT (G), THE ANGRY BAT (SL), RVB Books (F), BLOW UP PRESS (P), THE ERISKAY CONNECTION (N), SKINNERBOOX (I), DISKO BAY (D), FOTOHOF (A), JOURNAL (SW), NAMU (CZ), WO-MEN (CZ), POSITIF (CZ), EASTERN FRONT (UK/CZ), ARTMAP (CZ).
