DIY: Photographers & Books: By the Numbers
On August 11, the museum will open the first museum exhibition  to focus on the impact of print-on-demand publishing on the contemporary photographic practice. Instead of images on the wall, the room will be dominated by a long table where a visual banquet of more than 100 photobooks will await the visitor.
We thought it would be fun to consider some other numbers that have informed this exhibition.
