In the exhibition citybooks, the Flemish-Dutch House deBuren and De Markten invite you on a European city trip. From the heart of Brussels we reach beyond borders and show you city portraits from cities like Bucharest, Charleroi, Graz, Lublin, Ostend, Sheffield, Skopje, Tbilisi, and Utrecht. The exhibition includes work from photographers Christian Binder, David Bocking, Sander Buyck, Lisa Van Damme, Martijn van de Griendt, Kakha Kakhiani, Maciej Rukasz, Frosina Stojkovska and Lea Titz.
The photographs were created as part of the primarily literary project citybooks. This project was initiated by deBuren and has received generous support from the Culture Program of the European Union 2007-2013. deBuren invites five writers and one photographer - Dutch, Flemish, and European - to take part in a two week residency in an interesting, yet not necessarily self-evident, European city. During his or her stay, the photographer is asked to create a series of 24 images displaying a unique perspective on the city he or she resided in for two weeks. The writers are invited to use their impressions of the city to write us a citybook; a literary text that can be downloaded free of charge through www.city-books.eu as an audiobook, e-book, and web text. All citybooks will be made available in Dutch, French, and English. If the local language differs, the available texts are also translated into the local language. The authors themselves record the audiobook in their native language.
A citybooks photography exhibition would not be complete without adding a dash of literature. To this end, deBuren will organize a series of literary events including writers from throughout Europe. Keep an eye on www.deburen.eu for the complete program.
Organization: deBuren in the framework of the Summer of Photography 2012 by Bozar in collaboration with De Markten and with support of the European Committee
