Each year, the Unseen Dummy Award Exhibition takes place at the Book Market, showcasing the shortlist of dummies submitted for the Unseen Dummy Award. The dummies are prototypes of prospective photobooks, the preferred alternative to printmaking for many independent artists testing the possibilities of their work. From more than 200 submissions, one winner is selected to have their photobook published by Lecturis. This year’s international jury is comprised of Sarah Allen (Assistant Curator, Tate Modern), Tim Clark (Editor-in-Chief and Director, 1000 Words), Russet Lederman (Co-founder, 10×10 Photobooks), Paul van Mameren (Managing Director, Lecturis) and Małgorzata Stankiewicz (winner of the Unseen Dummy Award 2017).
