In the second year of the festival, Photo City was placed at Carlsberg, where the historic buildings with its 4000 square meters set the stage for a vast number of exhibitions by new talents as well as established names from the Danish and international scene.
2200 Everyday Rituals
During Copenhagen Photo Festival 2011, Nørrebrogade was turned into a large gallery, when the exhibition 2200 Everyday Rituals took over the store windows from the Bridge of Queen Louise to the Station of Nørrebro – a distance of approximately 3 km. The aim of the exhibition was to confront the stereotypical views on that part of town. The exhibition was curated by photographer Joachim Ladefoged, photographer and lecturer Jacob Holdt and gallery owner Martin Asbæk. The café and printing shop Fotocaféen attracted the curiosity of people walking down Vesterbrogade, by decorating all the shop windows in their selfcurated Photo Walk from Vesterbro Square all the way to Photo City at Carlsberg.
Copenhagen Photo Festival aims to create a festival with high artistic standards and broad appeal. Central in the festival program is bringing photography onto the urban scene. With the title Urban Space, the urban scene of Copenhagen was explored by photography. In collaboration with the Copenhagen Metro, the festival was able to create exhibitions in all the 30 Metro trains. The exhibitions showed a variety of the participating photographers.
