Editors’ Choice

Preparations for EMOP Berlin are in full swing: the 10th edition of the European Month of Photography (EMOP) will take place for the first time in spring from 2 to 31 March 2023. Around 100 EMOP Berlin partners will present the medium of photography in Berlin. With the 10th edition, the period of the largest photo festival in Germany will change from autumn to spring for its anniversary, thus bringing it closer to the dates of the European network from Paris, Lisbon and Vienna, among others.

The key players in this open, biennial festival format are Berlin’s museums, cultural institutions, galleries, educational institutions, project spaces, photography schools, colleges and universities, as well as the participating photographers and artists. Around 100 exhibitions will be on view at EMOP Berlin partners such as the Helmut Newton Foundation, C/O Berlin and the Akademie der Künste in March 2023. They offer visitors the opportunity to get to know the diverse uses and manifestations of the medium of photography over and over again.

“With the 10th edition of the European Month of Photography, a lot of the world is coming to Berlin.”

Andreas Rost

Following an open call, the expert jury for EMOP Berlin 2023 has selected around 100 partner institutions to participate in the festival of photographic images. The jury, consisting of Özlem Altin (artist, Berlin), Katia Reich (head of the photographic collection, Berlinische Galerie), Andreas Rost (photographer, Berlin), Wolfgang Ullrich (art historian and cultural scientist, Leipzig) and Maren Lübbke-Tidow (artistic director, EMOP Berlin), summed up: “With the 10th edition of the European Month of Photography, a lot of the world is coming to Berlin.”
According to the jury’s statement, the global perspective is striking, which is not only evident in the multitude of nationalities of the participating artists/photographers, but also in the themes they bring to the festival. The jury also sees the high number of collectives and collectively organised spaces that have applied, as well as the large number of participatory and/or collaborative projects, as a sign of the times, in which grassroots democratic cooperation seems to be the method of choice for many cultural workers. Entries by contemporary artists and photographers clearly outweigh exhibitions of historical images.

Until the end of March, the central anniversary exhibition on the festival’s leitmotif “touch” will also be on display in the Amtsalon.

EMOP Berlin is a member of the European Month of Photography (EMOP), a European joint project that currently also includes the photo festivals in Brussels, Lisbon, Luxembourg, Paris and Vienna. The idea of setting up a European network of photo festivals was born in 2003 on the initiative of Berlin’s partner city Paris. The aims of the joint project are to promote cooperation at European level, to strengthen the international photo scene, to intensify the exchange of information and experience and to support young artists. In spring 2023, the festivals will take place in Vienna, Paris and Luxembourg.
