A selection of projects supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia from 2013 until now.
The exhibit Swiss Photobook Today will be exhibited at Matca Space for Photography in Vietnam from 25 March to 9 May 2021.
Launched in 2013, Pro Helvetia’s support measures aim to promote the production of photobooks in a way that reflects the dynamic contemporary developments in this field in Switzerland. The appeal of the photobook as an object and art form, however, is an international phenomenon.
The “Swiss Photobook Today” exhibition has traveled around the world, reaching audiences in Myanmar, Russia, India, and more. For the iteration in Vietnam, 23 most relevant titles are selected to be exhibited at Matca Space for Photography in the capital of Hanoi. While diverse in both form and content, the books have a common feature: their high production standard which speaks of the great care in each step of the process, and the close collaboration among the photographer and creative partners.
