Over the past three years, Unseen has established an acclaimed photography fair, as well as an on-site festival programme at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. For the 2015 edition, Unseen is proud to introduce Unseen Festival – an extended festival programme in the city that celebrates photography in all its forms.
The heart of Unseen Festival remains on-site at the Westergasfabriek and will include the Unseen Living Room, the Unseen Book Market, the Unseen Collection, an exhibition of the Foam Talents 2015, Artist Recipes, and the immersive installation, Panorama Carland by Jan Hoek. The on-site activities will take place during Unseen Photo Fair from Friday the 18th to Sunday the 20th of September.
On Friday the 18th of September, the winner of the Unseen Dummy Award 2015 will be announced at the Unseen Book Market. On Saturday, Unseen visitors can witness the making of a photo book with Self Publish, Be Happy. For the duration of 24 hours, ten artists will respond to each other’s work across three continents with the goal of producing one collective publication. Keep an eye on the Unseen website for a detailed program on public signings and book launches.
Newly introduced this year are the Artist Recipes, an on-site dining experience on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th, where various chosen artists will determine the menu for the evening. The dinners will be organised at Westergasterras, where the recipes and the link to the artist’s body of work will be the main topic of the evening.
