Who wants to present the FOTODOK Book Club together with Rob Hornstra?
Since 2015, photographer and photo book lover Rob Hornstra shares his passion for photo books with a wide audience four times a year. In 2018 Sterre Sprengers joined the Book Club as co- presenter. And that was nice for Rob and it made the Book Club even more fun. Sterre will stop after the 31st edition of the Book Club now that she fulfills a new function in her work at the Correspondent. We are therefore looking for a new co-host for the FOTODOK Book Club.
The Book Club has the format of a talkshow: The three to four guests are diverse: in terms of age/ experience, style, approach and perspective. The subjects of the books also differ. From personal stories to major global, geo-political and social issues. There is exactly twenty minutes available per guest, after which the bell sounds. This is one of the most important rules of the Book Club. The conversations are an introduction to the work of the makers. Among the guests there are several short items that vary per Book Club: from the collector’s tip, a pitch from a creator who is crowdfunding for a new book to reissues of well-known, no longer available photo books. The Cloud Nine in TivoliVredenburg opens at 19.30, the program runs between 20 and 21.30 and afterwards there is an opportunity to buy the books, have a chat with the guests and have the books signed.
curious & a good listener
Do you feel
comfortable to speak and present in English
Do you have
a broad general development so that you have a basic knowledge of the diversity of themes that pass by at the Book Club
lead a conversation in a pleasant way & realize an inspiring evening with Rob Hornstra
And no: knowledge about photography and photo books is not necessary, interest is of course.
If you are the new co-host we’re looking for for the Book Club, please send a response in the form that best suits you before November 14 to email@example.com
Dates for the Book Clubs in the coming period: December 8, 2022, Feb 9, 2023, April 6, 2023, October 5, 2023 and December 7, 2023
