The European Month of Photography Luxembourg is scheduled as usual. Nevertheless, due to the Covid situation, the openings of the exhibitions scheduled end of April will most probably open with restricted access only or no public venue should the restrictions still prevail. Official opening is now postponed beginning of June for our guests and participating artists. We do expect travelling restrictions to be lifted in summer so that the portfolio review and other events can be scheduled as we expect.
Our Vienna partner Kunst Haus Wien, will present the Bodyfiction(s) project during its festival in March 2019. This collaboration results not only in an exhibition, but also in a book covering near forty European artists on this topic and a symposium with the participating cities. The book about the project Bodyfiction will be available in the FOTO WIEN Pop-up Shop in the main banking hall of the Postsparkasse, the exhibition location.

Numerous museums, cultural institutions, galleries, project spaces, embassies, and photo schools in Berlin and Potsdam present exhibitions and events which have been selected by a panel of experts. The formats range from outdoor exhibitions and large museum shows to individual and group presentations in galleries and project spaces, and impressive contributions from various international cultural institutions and embassies as well as municipal offices for art and culture.
