Photography Call Talents, Berlin. Deadline: Dec. 14, 2012

Talents is an international competition held annually. The jury of professional judges selects four photographers and four art critics each year from the submitted entries. Their work is presented in four solo exhibitions at C/O Berlin over the course of the year and at the Goethe Institute in New York City. Each solo exhibition is accompanied by a publication in which images and text enter into dialogue: talented young artists present themselves and their projects to a broad public, open up their work for discussion, and thus create a public 

Talents 2013

In 2013, the Talents series will be dedicated to the theme of memories. A dominant feature of the medium of photography is to freeze a moment and in this way record it, making it a perfect carrier for memories of external events. This also means that photographs have the function of giving something meaning: because to us, only those things that have been focused on by photography seem worth recalling. The transience of a moment is captured for eternity and for us seems to confirm that something occurred exactly in this way at that time. Yet how reliable is photography in conveying recollections? If we look more closely, the medium of photography is just as fluid, blurred and relative as our own perception. It only depicts a small section of reality, the surface of an event or occurrence so to speak, and in this way triggers mental replication. As material memorial objects, photographs construe individual and collective memories, constantly superimpose one another – or create obstacles by causing us to imagine the wrong thing. With the endless flood of images resulting from the development of technical media and the increasing digitalization of photographic archives, today the question arises more strongly than ever: in what way do we remember and in what way can photography conserve memories. An artistic approach to photographic archives, found footage or associative processes could also be observed more frequently in the last few years. Whether conceptually, playfully or scientifically, whether through photography or film – how can the aspect of memory be broached by these forms of media? How can the theme “memory” be realized photographically and how can the process of recollection be artistically challenged and visualized?

Who can apply?

Photographers and art critics up to the age of 35. 

How do I apply?

Photographers can submit up to 15 samples of their work in print form – maximal size DIN A4, no originals. A short project description should accompany the photographs, as well as the online application form. A fee of 20 Euros will be raised.
