PPLATS is an online-publication about places created by curator Nayab Ikram (AX) and graphic designer Fredrik Enges (AX).

The first issue covers the island as a place and it is launched online 2 August 2018 at 6 pm.

The launch of PPLATS takes place in connection to the exhibition opening of “PPLATS #1” at Photographic Centre Peri. The exhibition consists of photographs, installations, illustrations, text, video- and audio works, all examinating, investigating and pondering around island as a place. The exhibition is curated by Nayab Ikram.

Invited participating artists are Camille Auer (FI), Elena Aya Bundurakis (GR/JP), Alex Backstrom (SE), Fredrik Enges (AX), Emma Heiðarsdóttir (IS) and Karl Henrik Edlund (FI).
