Young photographers and art critics
for Talents 2012
for the theme Cinematic Thinking
until 16 December 2011
In 2012, C/O's e.V. will continue its Talents exhibition series and is seeking promising young photographers to submit their work until 16 December 2011 for this unique promotional program in Europe.
Since 2006, C/O Berlin's e.V. has been supporting promising young photographers and art critics who stand at the threshold between education and career. Each year, four photographers are selected to present their work at the Old Post Office in the Berlin district of Mitte 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 forum. It is an experimental space for young international contemporary photography and art criticism.
In 2012, the Talents series will focus on the theme of Cinematic Thinking. Engagement with the medium of film has become ever more central to photography in recent years. This can be seen in the increasing exploration of film production processes, experimentation with narrative structures, and references to film aesthetics and film myths. How can photography adapt film structures and simulaneously break them open? What strengths do still images have over moving pictures? Photography in the classical sense, with its conventional wall presentation, can be expanded through the utilization of projection and installation strategies, thereby creating new possibilities for reflecting on the medium of photography itself.
How do you apply? Photographers under the age of 35 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 application form that van be completed online on the C/O Berlin homepage (www.co-berlin.com). A fee of 20 Euros will be raised
Special Please note that art critics are welcome to submit samples of their work at any time.
An expert jury will be convened in early 2012 to select the four best positions from the works selected for the Talents series.
