Deadline: February 5, 2021
Entry Fee: from €5 to €15
Prizes: participation in the exhibition
For this new exhibition, we invite artists to show how their photographic practice can express the notion of ‘Connection‘ – by definition, a relationship in which a person or thing is linked or associated with something else. This concept is omnipresent in our lives, as connections between people, places, times, objects, ideas or energies can be found at so many different levels.
The idea of connectedness can be associated with globalization, the boom of digitalization or the development of technologies and means of transportation, or it can be seen as the result of successful networking and cooperation. ‘Connection‘ is also a fundamental pillar of one’s well-being and spiritual life. The relationship with others and the world contributes to shaping our identities and plays an important role in our sense of belonging to a place or a community. This feeling can lead to a deep understanding and awareness of the interconnectedness of everything. Environmentally, socially, economically – any way you look at it, we all are individual parts of a greater whole.
How do you define ‘Connection’ and what does it mean to you? Is this feeling of being connected to yourself and to others the key to a meaningful life? How does photography relate to this concept? Does the photographic medium, which by definition creates a connection with a different time and space, have the power to take you to another dimension?
All approaches to the subject are welcome, we look forward to discovering how your work can open up new perspectives on this topic!
The competition is open to any photographer, 18 years of age or older, from any country.
The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery “KlanGalerie” in Berlin in April 2021.
