Fotografiska – A forum for photography.
At Fotografiska, we strive to be a vital centre for contemporary photography. Our ambition is to exhibit world-renown photographers, many of who have never shown in Sweden. Located in the heart of Stockholm, the museum has an exhibition space of 2,500 square meters, and features 4 major exhibitions per year and approximately 15-20 minor exhibitions. At Fotografiska, we aim to engage and inspire a dialogue on photography via exhibitions, seminars, and courses. In addition to this, we work actively toward the acquisition of contemporary photography for our permanent collection.
Fotografiska is housed in a former industrial Art Nouveau style building dating from 1906. Designed by Ferdinand Boberg, the building was used for the customscontrol of goods, and is listed as a building of cultural interest. The original brickfacade of the beautiful customsbuilding is intact, while the interiors have been renovated to house the museum. The city of Stockholm has funded the 250 million crown restoration costs. In addition to the exhibition spaces, Fotografiska houses an academy, bistro, cafe, bar, conference rooms, museum shop, gallery, and event spaces.
