The Censored Exhibition - Copenhagen Photo Festival 2021

Copenhagen Photo Festival is the largest photo festival in the Nordic region, running on June 3-30, 2021, with more than 50 exhibitions in collaboration with galleries, museums and cultural institutions in Copenhagen and southern Sweden. Each year, 250 Danish and foreign photographers contribute, and the festival is visited by around 55.000 people. In June, photography is on the agenda under the three main pillars Framing Identity, Framing Society and Framing Vision, through exhibitions, workshops, talks, portfolio reviews and more.

Copenhagen Photo Festival focuses on development. New forms of exhibiting, new ways to use photography as well as new perspectives and emerging talents. The festival presents a programme of high quality – artistically and conceptually – building bridges between fine art and documentary photography. Copenhagen Photo Festival is for those who want to break new ground and challenge the idea of what photography is and can be, now and in the future.

The festival centre is located on Refshaleøen, an island in Copenhagen with an industrial history. The raw atmosphere has made the island a creative centre with art institutions such as Copenhagen Contemporary, Reffen – Copenhagen Street Food, theatres, and cultural events which draws an audience from the entire world. Through the festival we challenge traditional presentation methods, finding new and innovative ways to present the artists’ vision.

The festival prioritizes experimentation and sustainability in its production. We work with partners within architecture, crossing the border between in- and outside through innovative use of our established festival centre and its surrounding exhibition park.

The Censored Exhibition

The Censored Exhibition is a group show that seeks to present a contemporary selection of international fine art photography. Around 60 works produced within the past two years will be selected by an international jury based on an open call. The works will be exhibited at Copenhagen Photo Festival June 3-13 2021. The exhibition is part of the festival’s programme pillar Framing Vision, which focuses on the aesthetics and techniques of photographic expression.

We received a total of 380 applications from 49 countries, of which 24 artists have been selected from 15 countries by an international jury based on an open call.

This year, the jury consisted of Roderick van der Lee, Executive Director at Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam, Audrey Hoareau, Artistic Director at Photo Basel & freelance curator and Michelle Eistrup, critically acclaimed artist.
