Athens Photo Festival 2015 – “Reframe Memory”

International Festival of Contemporary Photography

Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Exploring issues relevant to our times, our programmes work internationally, nationally and locally, encompassing a variety of activities that aim at fostering a critical understanding of contemporary culture and society through photography and related media.

The festival has opened submissions for the 2015 programme. Artists/photographers, collectives and curators from all over the world are invited to submit their work.

The 2015 theme, under the title “Reframing Memory”, explores the relationship between past and present, both experimental and mainstream, bringing together a wide range of international artistic positions.

The main programme will take place from 3 June through 26 July 2015, at the Benaki Museum, one of the oldest and most prestigious museums in Greece. At the core of the programme is a series of solo and group exhibitions from emerging and established photographers and artists, as well as a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, workshops, talks (the so-called ‘Photo Voices’) and participatory projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through the satellite exhibitions across the city of Athens.

These activities are designed to reflect the diversity of contemporary photographic practice, and to create opportunities for participation, exchange of ideas, learning and creative partnerships. The festival continues to evolve with the times and looks forward to developing projects that open up new audiences for photography and exploring realms where photography intersects with other creative disciplines.

Athens Photo Festival is a member of the European Month of Photography (EMoP), a network comprised of photography festivals in 8 European capitals – Athens, Berlin, Budapest, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Luxembourg, Paris and Vienna – that aims to foster collaboration on joint projects within a European context.
