Cosmos is a satellite space at the heart of the Rencontres d’Arles, taking place during the opening week of the festival, from the 4th until the 9th of July 2016. Having been an independent space first, and since last year a part of the official program, Cosmos - created and directed by Olivier Cablat and Sebastian Hau – is a laboratory of contemporary practices in photography, edition and visual art. Since eight years multiplicty and singularity have been it’s guiding principles, as much as celebrating books and editions as one of the central mediums in photography since more than fifteen years.
For their 8th edition, Cosmos will celebrate multiplicity in bookmaking and publishing, from it’s most traditional and respected forms to it’s most experimental apparitions. The organizers want Cosmos to be the central meeting place where the different points of view in photobook making, as much as affection and criticism can be shared and discussed. Up to 80 publishers will present their books, making Cosmos the largest fair of it’s kind for photobooks, from local iniatives to internationally renowned publishers, accompanied by a program of performances, conferences and panels, book signings and other book-related events. Our own projects, such as the PDF Award or our participative project Digital Horse will be presented in our Cosmos Office. The whole program can be checked under Cosmos website.
