Themes of this year's exhibitions within the framework of Photoszene United or individual works are reappraised or contextualized from a photo-historical perspective. This format does not aim for completeness, but can only pick out exemplary works or exhibitions that are thematically appropriate. For example, the embedding of individual works in photographic genres (documentary photography, press photography, advertising photography, etc.) is conceivable, which are then explained in more detail, or an iconographic style analysis. In this way, the Photoszene aims to embed current artistic trends and media in a larger overall context, thus building a bridge between the here and now and the history of the medium.DieMotive Podcast Special Photoszene United #1: Heide Häusler & Damian Zimmermann About the beginnings of the festival, the different formats, the emancipation from Photokina and making festivals in times of a pandemic.
