Call for photo exhibition in Rotterdam. Deadline: Oct. 19, 2018

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to the theme

‘Winterreise’

This exhibition will be on view from November 14th until december 23th, 2018, in Galerie Sehnsucht. Jury this time, will be the gallerists themselves. It will show their own selection from the works that were submitted in the call. The deadline for the call is october 19th 24.00 hours 2018.

Since this call is for the last exhibition in the dark months of 2018 we have a challenging and exciting theme: Winterreise. Winter is a time of cosiness and warmth at home, and beautiful white landscapes, but can also be the bitter time of harsh coldness, desolation and discomfort. Picturalists like Stieglitz captured winter as harmless beautiful frozen landscapes, but you   only have to think of the photos of Josef Koudelka, the paintings by Caspar David Friedrich or Schubert’s famous Winterreise to know that wintertime is not necessarily the happiest time of the year. Josef Koudelka photographed scared dogs in abandoned winter parks and isolated wanderers fighting the snow, just as Friedrich painted this kind of scenes 200 years earlier. Schubert’s hero sets of in a dark and freezing winter night, mocked by ravens, to rid of his lost love. But on the other hand, Martin Parr had great fun capturing people during winterholidays, Inge Morath photographed winter most idyllically, and Agnus McBean enjoyed himself with making fun christmas cards.

What we are looking for, is artistic photography showing the feeling of a Winterreise. Of course you can send in your best winter landscape photo’s. But we want the Winterreise-exhibition also to be a timeless show, dealing with various emotions, feelings and atmospheres. Images of (lost) loves, romance, grief and hurt, happiness and loneliness, comfort and security, coldness, nature and trees, ravens and stray dogs and yes, of winter. Get inspired by the great masters of photography, by the music with its strong visual imagery (if you’d like the full text you can read it here, or listen here), or freestyle and follow your own ideas on the theme.

What will you show us?
Your work can be anything from a straight photograph, to manipulated and even drawn Photoshop projects, from alternative 19th century photographic techniques to modern, computer made images, as long as it’s based on one or more photographic images (no drawings or paintings) and you can show us how it looks by sending us a digital file. Learn how to participate and send us your best work by clicking here.

ENGAGED, ACTIVE, AWARE_WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVES NOW. DEADLINE: JUNE 15, 2018.

ORGAN VIDA International Photography Organization based in Croatia invites artists from all over the world who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video and sound, installation, collage to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic: Engaged, Active, Aware — Women’s Perspectives Now. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the main curated exhibition during the jubilee 10th ORGAN VIDA — International Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.

In the time of post-capitalist global turmoil, technological advancements, strengthening of the right-wing extremism, the growing influence of the religion that limits women rights again, and the semblance of democracy in the 21st century, we are facing a situation in which women must fight anew for the rights that had been won long ago. In the midst of initiatives such as #MeToo, Free the Nipple, The Future is Female, and phenomena such as the female gaze, it is necessary to re-examine the current role of photography in representing and articulating women’s experiences, and to critically rethink how digital culture is transforming feminist approaches to the image.

Members of an international jury will have the task of evaluating and selecting 20 artworks that address contemporary challenges, issues and perspectives related to this open call. In particular, the emphasis will be on the inclusion and appreciation of diverse attitudes, different cultural and geographic context that can jointly, in the framework of the curatorial concept, provide an overview of the current situation in the global socio-political and feminist scene. We therefore invite all interested artists who work in the medium of photography as such or in an expanded form, video, or installation to apply to this open call and respond to the given topic. The selected artists will exhibit their work at the 10th Organ Vida Photography Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Sep 12 – 30, 2018.
Submission deadline: 15 June, 2018.

Fees: 30€ per project, 20€ for Balkan countries (ex Yugoslavia). Artist from countries in the Balkan region (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo,the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia) have a reduced entry fee. Applicants must have a voucher to get the 10€ discount.

WANDERLUST. PHOTOGRAPHIC ART. DEADLINE MAY, 27.

Call for entries to: photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to “Wanderlust”. This exhibition will be on view from June 20th until August, 5th, 2018, in Galerie Sehnsucht.

What we are looking for, is artistic photography showing the feeling of Wanderlust.

Wanderlust is a German loanword, known to many people, for most of us have this irresistibly strong desire to travel, to wander and to rove about. Although the word dates back to the half of the nineteenth century, wandering became fashionable around 1800. The French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau urged people to get back to nature, and in Germany a whole bunch of ‘Sturm und Drang’ poets strolled about nature, Goethe ahead, to express their modern consciousness of life. For life was heavily shaken up by all the wars and revolutions that time and hardly anything was still the same. Nature, travel, the great unknown gave way to a new pace in life where one could slow down and escape everyday hectic. Travelling by foot lead to an encounter with nature that was both physical and sensual. Like a pilgrimage, one could meet the sublime in nature and in oneself.

The Jury: will be assisted by Eli Dijkers. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.
