Photography Call. Galerie Sehnsucht. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2017

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to Sehnsucht. Our first exhibition will be on view with this title from November 1st, until December 10th, in our wonderful gallery at the Vijverhofstraat. It will show our selection from the works that were submitted in the call. We will be assisted in making this selection by Philippe Moroux. Philippe is an artist and photographer who lectures at the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda, Netherlands. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.

sehnsucht (n) “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what”

‘Sehnsucht’ is a German word, but known to artists for centuries. Friedrich von Schelling, a German author and thinker, called Sehnsucht the “gravity of our emotions”. It explains the never ending search people set out to do, a searching in the world, in the hearts of other people, a search in themselves … but not knowing quite for certain what they are looking for, it’s more a feeling than a word. The old idea of the ‘Wanderer’, always restless and thinking that happiness is somewhere else, is closely connected to it. Sehnsucht can apply to small longings, intimate things, but just as well to great things and deeds that one wants to happen, or to the loneliness the individual looks for in the face of the sublime.
Popular as emotion in the arts from the days of the romantics in the 19th century, the word can be applied on work of photographers as different as Alfred Stieglitz, Bill Brandt, Sally Man or William Egglestone.

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, graphic arts (etchings, litho’s…), 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.
