European Master of Fine Art Photography
Dates: April 20, 2015 – March 10, 2016

The European Master of Fine Art Photography is a unique program, based on the excellence of its teachers, which include well-renowned photographers, curators and artists such as Martin Parr, Elger Esser, Joan Fontcuberta, Simon Roberts, Andreas Müller-Pohle or Alejandro Castellote, among others, who encourage the students to develop their individual vision in a creative and collaborative environment.

The Master’s proposal is based on the premise that there is a conceptual, European creative identity, which is and must be a primordial reference point in terms of academics, culture, and the art market. The proposal is not, however, closed, but rather, as everything European, an open invitation to diversity and exchange. In this sense, the participation of students from other continents is specially interesting and enriching.

The program methodology is mainly based on workshops with high-level artists and theorists. The students will have meetings with a weekly or fortnightly frequency. In addition, students can benefit from group and individual projects, personalized tutoring and enjoy visits to companies and studios. Regular meetings with faculty staff, professional artists, and visiting critics help the students develop their individual points of view to situate their work within the large theoretical and contemporary visual context.

Open Call: Destination Vienna 2015. Deadline: Oct. 4, 2014

Welcome back after the summer!

Have a look at this: Artists living in Vienna or those who will have a residency in Vienna during the time of the submission and/or during the course of the exhibition, or “all those who show a connection with Vienna in their artistic work” may submit to this call, with no restrictions to age or nationality. If this is your case, keep reading:
From April 17, until May 31, 2015 Kunsthalle Wien will present the exhibition Destination Vienna 2015 that follows the exhibition series Living and working in Vienna, which took place in 2000, 2005 and 2010.

 In contrast to the previous exhibitions, Destination Vienna 2015 has a central theme: Based on the status quo of geopolitical and cultural position and the potentials, issues and areas of conflict evolving of it, the exhibition will present ways of dealing with different aspects of living together. What do artists find important in and about Vienna and how do they experience the city in relation to its geopolitical position? What does living together mean today? What is art’s contribution to this? What kind of influence do politics have on this issue?

Destination Vienna 2015 will expand to all venues of Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier and Karlsplatz and, via a cooperation with galleries from Vienna, to the entire city.

FORMAT FESTIVAL 2015 – Exposure. OPEN CALL. Deadline: October 1, 2014

Photography was once considered the most accurate way to record truth. The photograph acted as a solid piece of evidence; indisputable proof of something, someone or somewhere. Since its discovery, photography has been employed as a silent witness to ideas, capturing events and representing a trace of the world.

Today, every two minutes, we take as many photos as the entirety of humanity took during the 1800s. On a daily basis, we use photography to evidence our lives; routines, friends, meals, encounters. Millions of seemingly insignificant moments are recorded and shared online, creating inconclusive portraits of individuals, places and events.

We can no longer consider a photograph an evidential document in every case. It can equally misrepresent reality as much as it reveals truths; questioning the historic phrase “the camera never lies”.

They are interested in the evidence of your ideas, your lives and the lives of others, today and throughout history. They are inviting submissions which explore the boundaries of photography and its connection to their festival theme, EVIDENCE, in original and genuine ways.

They are looking for submissions from across the medium of photography and beyond for the next edition of FORMAT International Photography Festival, taking place from 13th March – 12th April 2015, in Derby, UKSubmissions are welcome from artists/photographers, curators, collectives, archives, independent publishers and performers.

There are opportunities to show different kinds of works: wall based, installation, public space, screen based, interactive, digital, participatory, workshop and event based. Tell us more in the application form! All we ask is that you connect with the theme and photography/still image.

They are open to broad interpretations of the theme.

Think openly about the definition of the theme and you are welcome to take it in any direction you think relates.

Submissions costs £15.

Deadline: October 1, 2014
