Charta Festival in Rome

Charta Festival 2021

Overlapse will be in Rome during the opening weekend of Charta Festival, 17-18 July. It will truly be a delight to take part, in-person, at a community-based event for the first time since November 2019!

The first edition of Charta, a contemporary photography festival focused on photobooks and independent publishing, has the theme of ‘Demons’ – which aims to investigate “the darkest derivations of the human condition, from territorial to social and psychological issues, giving a transversal perspective on contemporary challenges.”

An exhibition of 100 photobooks on the theme will be shown around San Lorenzo, the art district of Rome, and Overlapse will take part in the Book Market held at Matèria Gallery, via dei Latini 27 from 10am-8pm on 17th & 18th July. Please join us if you’re in Rome!

From 6pm on Saturday the 17th July, Overlapse will give a presentation, and talk with Lara Shipley & Antone Dolezal who will discuss their new book Devil’s Promenade connected live by video from the US.

The winning book dummy photographer(s) will receive a contribution of 10,000€ for publication, as well as three mentorship sessions and international distribution. The prize winner will be announced in October 2021.

The Star Photobook Dummy Award is dedicated to the loving creativity of graphic designer Inés Casals, and will focus on projects permeated by the human values that were important in her life such as: friendship, empathy, intimacy, warmth, love, beauty, poetry, doubt, fear, challenge, tenacity, empowerment, self-determination, resilience, acceptance, self-care, compassion, without forgetting irony and non-conforming.
