Photoszene Festival to Take Place Alongside photokina


Once again, photokina and Photoszene Festival, will take place parallelly. As a partner, photokina has already been supporting the festival for several years. Now, they have decided to intensify the cooperation. Just like photokina, the festival will also take place annually in May, in 2019.

“We have the ambition of creating an attractive cultural offering around the image, both before and during photokina. It only makes sense for us to jointly pursue this goal, together with an internationally renowned art event like the Photoszene Festival,” said Christoph Menke, Director of photokina. The festival reached more than 100,000 visitors and featured 100 exhibitions.

They have also introduced the Photoszene Residency programme called the Artist meets Archive, for the 2018 edition. Six international artists will get a chance to dig into photography collections and archives, and form a base for their own concept for an exhibition, for the festival, in May 2019.
