Capture your city

 

Exhibition period

8. June - 31. August 2018

What makes us feel at home in the city? Is it the communities, the life between the buildings, the open spaces or the quiet park? Experience DAC’s first exhibition at Bryghuspladsen in front of BLOX.

From the 8th of June – 31st of August you can experience this year’s “Capture your city” exhibition at Bryghuspladsen right in front of BLOX. On display are selected photographs from the more than 2.600 submissions from all over Denmark to the photo contest “Capture your city”. The contest was divided into two categories, one open for everyone and one for the schools.

The theme of this year’s exhibition is “my home in the city”, which is closely knitted to DAC’s big opening exhibition “Welcome Home”. The photographs represent personal cross sections of the countless ways we can feel at home in the city – in urban neighborhoods, in natural surroundings, or in well-known spaces new and old.

Discover the exhibition’s diversity through the different pictures of homeliness in the city. You can interact with the exhibition by angling the photos after the light and experience them in both a worm’s eye and a bird’s eye view.

A professional jury consisting of Jan Gehl, architect, Maja Dyrehauge, head of Copenhagen Photo Festival and Kristine Kern, head of the Fotografisk Center gallery, have selected the winners and the exhibited photos.
