The Kasseler Fotoforum hosted the first festival dedicated to the photobook in 2008 as part of the Kasseler Fotofrühling. After it had been floating around for some time, as a result of many discussions it became a concrete idea to start a festival that was dedicated to the photobook. Thus the Fotobookfestival Kassel was born. Here you can find some informations to our previous festivals.
