Transeurope, European photo platform

Introducing Transeurope, a new European platform for professional photographers and visual artists to share, learn, interact and develop their work internationally. The scope of Transeurope is to facilitate access to professional opportunities as well as to create the conditions for greater transnational circulation of their works.

From January to March 2018, preparatory portfolio workshops are going to take place in 14 countries at international cultural and photography venues. Following on from this from May to June 2018, three portfolio reviews will be held in Madrid, Athens and Helsinki where more than 60 portfolio reviewers and 200 photographers/visual artists are expected to participate. The program will include seminars and workshops, conference and cultural visits shaping an experience of professional training for photographers.

After the closure of the portfolios, a jury will select 30 works that will be part of three group exhibitions (September 2018-November 2019) and will be also featured in the accompanying printed magazine/publication and the web platform will be a data base for consulting with more than 300 experts, artists and art centers, etc.

Transeurope is co-organized by the Fundacion Contemporanea-PhotoEspaña in Madrid, The Finnish museum of Photography in Helsinki and Euromare NPO in Athens. Among its founders the project has come to life with the support from the European Commission, the Creative Europe Culture-Educational, and the Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

The Foam Talent Call is an international search for artists between the ages of 18 and 35 who make use of the medium of photography in fresh or striking ways. Selected artists will have their work published in Foam Magazine and participate in a touring exhibition, among other career-building opportunities.

Foam Talent Call 2018
This year’s edition of Foam Talent Call runs from 1 February until 18 March 2018.

Devoted to showcasing new names and interesting tendencies, the Talent issue is regarded as a yearly phenomenon closely watched by photography and creative professionals alike.

Extensive international opportunities
The publication of the Talent issue marks the start of a year of touring exhibitions that give physical form to the vision of these talented image makers. Artists work alongside a curatorial team to actualise their project within a collective setting, while staying true to their personal technique and practice. Once realised, the exhibition travels during key moments of the art/photography agenda to locations such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, New York and Paris, where the work on display can be appreciated by a burgeoning and vibrant audience.

The Foam Talent Call 2018 also offers, for the first time, the chance for selected works by one of the Foam Talents to be acquired by the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and added to their prestigious collection of contemporary photography, the Art Collection Deutsche Börse.
