Buy your ticket soon to avoid disappointment – the last Book Club sold out fast. Book Club #6 focuses on projects that have captured (the identity of) a place, city, country or region. Time, and the changes it brings about, also play an important role, set against a particular event or era.


Dutch photographer Thomas Manneke will talk about his book ‘Amsterdam’. Also attending is Ukrainian photographer Arthur Bondar. He grew up next to ‘The Exclusion Zone’, a 30km (282,700 hectares) area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant that exploded in 1986. Thirty years after the disaster, he went back to the area and visited the zone. The visit resulted in the book ‘Shadow of Wormwood’.
