An important aspect on the agenda of the most recent meeting with our partners of the EMOP group (European Month of Photography) last week in Bratislava in the House of Photography in Central Europe, was a strategic one. We were seeking for a better harmonization of the communication strategies of eight cities hosting a festival on photography. The proposals made by the design office C / O Berlin – working for our Berlin partner Kulturprojekte Berlin – have been adopted by all cities. Thus, in September Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Vienna will adopt a similar design for posters, catalogues and website. The new logo – which will be the same for all the festivals – will be placed next to the logo specific to each festival. Indeed, despite the need to show more coherence, it was not our intend to eliminate the characteristics of each city; some are organizing a festival for 25 years and more. Our aim was primarily to provide a better readability of photo festivals in Europe and to see the connections that are made between the various cities that work together now for 10 years.
To actively prepare the edition of a new book / catalog dedicated to contemporary photography, curators of the European month of photography gathered in Vienna End of January to finalize the content of the next edition which contains topics of great political imortance: the conflicts generated by 9/11 in Europe, including the hot topic of surveillance and the refugee crisis. Fifty artists have already been selected who will be contacted in the coming weeks. The publication will be available in principle towards the end of September and will have the title “Looking for the Clouds”
