Open Call, Theme Contact, analogue NOW! Photo Weekend

Open Call groupexhibtion – Theme: KONTAKT

Whether as a technical or a social term, the topic of CONTACT has gained a new meaningfulness in the past 12 months. For analogue photographers, CONTACT is already a central term: whether on film, wet plate or paper, the contact of light with a light-sensitive emulsion is the key to artistic creation. Contact can be understood and interpreted in different contexts, physical contact, emotional contact or technical contact. The theme also gives room to research the technical and theoretical conditions of analogue photography. With the decision to use CONTACT as the theme of this year’s group exhibition, we want to address experimental artists and documentary photographers. The ambiguity of the topic will allow us to curate an exhibition that presents the many facets of contemporary analogue photography. Don’t hesitate to develop your own individual understanding of CONTACT!
