The next Photoszene Festival will take place from May 21 - 30, 2021! In consideration of the general current situation, this year we give the festival the claim Photoszene United*, because at a time when we are all still trying to contain the pandemic, it is a wrong sign to speak of a festival in the true sense of the word, evoking images of grand openings, long art evenings and festival parties. 
While many events will still not be able to take place without restrictions, we are sure that exhibitions can be visited. We are happy to be chosen for the "dive in. Program for Digital Interactions of the German Federal Cultural Foundation, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) in the NEUSTART KULTUR program", which opens up many possibilities for hybrid formats of communication and education for us. In this way, we can continue to let as many people as possible participate in the content of the program. 

Applications to participate in Photoszene United* in May 2021 have been open here via the website since December 1.  A virtual information evening for those interested will be held on February 2 at 5 pm. If you have any questions in advance, please feel free to send us an email at any time to festival@photoszene.de.

In the context of Photoszene United* you can expect the 5 exhibitions of the second edition of the Artist Meets Archive project by Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh, Joan Fontcuberta, Anna Orlowska, Philipp Goldbach and Rosângela Rennó at the Deutsches Tanzmuseum, the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum and the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln. We are very much looking forward to it! In addition, as always, we are planning a supporting and outreach program of guided tours, workshops, a symposium, and a NEXT! Festival of the Young Photoszene. PLUS: If everything works out, we will also be able to play a new room with photography in May, more about that hopefully soon, it will be great!!!

Stay tuned!
