BIENNALE FÜR AKTUELLE FOTOGRAFIE 2017
FAREWELL PHOTOGRAPHY

09/09 – 05/11/2017

EXHIBITION AT ZEPHYR:
EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY
What does the setting reveal about the stance?

curated by Florian Ebner

In 2017 the internationally renowned Fotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg will be renamed as the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie.

The first Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie, which will be on show from 9 September 2017 in Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg, takes its leave from photography as it has been known hitherto. Under the title Farewell Photography, a six-member curator team will shed light on radical ways of handling images in the digital age and present an alternative look at photography’s history. The Biennale will be showing works by more than 60 international photographers and artists in seven chapters in seven museums of the region.

EXHIBITION AT ZEPHYR:
EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY
What does the setting reveal about the stance?

curated by Florian Ebner

When societal upheavals, political events and traumatic moments are reduced to a few public images, it is rewarding to take a closer look at these and to consult others. For example, this exhibition poses the question of the connection between photographic and content-related perspective, of the direction of the camera and of the attitude behind the camera. What does the juxtaposition of images give away about an event, what other realities become visible, what functions of the shots and what contexts determine our reading of these images? What is the “stance behind the settings”? (curated by Florian Ebner)

Artists:
Sven Johne, Arwed Messmer and many more
