Ryuichi Kaneko will show us the most exquisite works of Japanese visual culture

The Japanese Photobook

Japan is considered by many the country of the books. This phenomenon can be largely attributed to the influence of Japanese publications.

The relevance and great influence of Japan in the world of books, has led to one of the chapters of the exhibition "Photobook Phenomenon", dedicated to the masterpieces of this genre. The pieces have been selected by curator and collector Ryuichi Kaneko, who will explain to us in a single lecture (in Foto Colectania) and a guided tour (in the CCCB), five aspects of the Japanese photobooks.

Free entry. Limited capacity.
Activity in Japanese with consecutive translation.

At the end of the event, a Damm beer will be offered courtesy of DAMM Foundation.
This activity is organized in parallel with the exhibition "Photobook Phenomenon" co-produced by CCCB and Foto Colectania and is part of the annual cycle "Photography: In Print | Online" organized by Foto Colectania with the collaboration of the Banco Sabadell Foundation.

The Friends and Benefactors of Foto Colectania can have reserved seats.
