Der EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography ist das größte deutsche Fotofestival. Seit 2004 findet es alle zwei Jahre in Berlin statt und präsentiert zahlreiche Ausstellungen und Veranstaltungen zu historischer und zeitgenössischer Fotografie. Veranstalter ist die Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH in Zusammenarbeit mit Museen, Kulturinstitutionen, Galerien, Botschaften, Projekträumen und Fotoschulen in Berlin und Potsdam. Der EMOP Berlin ist Mitglied des European Month of Photography (EMOP), eines europäischen Gemeinschaftsprojekts, dem auch die Fotofestivals in Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Luxemburg, Paris und Wien angehören. Bereits 2003 entstand auf Initiative der Berliner Partnerstadt Paris die Idee, ein europäisches Netzwerk von Fotofestivals ins Leben zu rufen. Der Kooperation von Berlin, Paris und Wien folgten schon 2006 die Hauptstädte Bratislava, Luxemburg, Moskau und Rom. 2012 wurde der Kreis um Budapest und Ljubljana erweitert. 2014 trat Athen dem europäischen Netzwerk bei.

What a fantastic 8th European Month of Photography in Berlin!

One month long, the city was marked by the medium of photography: In 120 exhibitions and more than 300 events – including workshops, talks, studio visits, films, and much more – the diversity of historical and contemporary photography was presented, explored, and debated. Participants included museums, galleries, embassies, cultural institutes, project spaces, and photography schools in Berlin and Potsdam, with both indoor and outdoor events.

We would like to thank all participating institutions, photographers, and – of course – all of you thousands of visitors who celebrated the medium of photography throughout the month of October!

We hope to see you for the 9th EMOP Berlin in 2020!

Everyone interested in architecture, listen up!

During EMOP Berlin, the Galerie Beate Brinkmann in Charlottenburg presents the black and white photography series "The Glass House" by British photographer Michael Carapetian (born 1938).
https://bit.ly/2OfJMjg

"The Glass House" or in French, the "Maison de Verre" is a house in Paris built by Pierre Chareau in 1931. Its façade, a nontransparent wall of glass, transformed it into an icon of modern architecture. Michael Carapetian’s photographs from 1965, when he spent several days in the Maison, show a “canonical and mysterious house in images ranging from close-ups of the construction details to partial shots of the various rooms with their particular furnishings and the shape of the house as it transformed depending on the time of the day or night.” (Kenneth Frampton).

► The exhibition "The Glass House" will be on view until tomorrow, 31 OCT, only. So if you have the time: The Galerie Beate Brinkmann is open today and tomorrow from noon to 6pm. Step by!

Armin Zogbaum / #meetthepro

EMOP Berlin's final studio visit of this month took place last Saturday: Armin Zogbaum opened his doors to share his experiences as a renowed still life photographer.

Berlin based Zogbaum is an educated chef and stylist, later he turned to photography to combine both, his passion for beautiful things and details, and traveling. Armin Zogbaum shoots campaigns for high end clients such as Chopard, Prada, Chanel and many more. He also does interior, food, and advertising work.

In our #meetthepro video, Armin Zogbaum uses the example of the diamond necklace "Queen of Kalahari" by Chopard to explain the challanges of still life photography.

► A good overview of Armin Zogbaum's work can be found on his website: www.arminzogbaum.com

EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography

MONDAY RECOMMENDATION // During the colonial era, the botanist Georg August Zenker, who lived in the German colony of Cameroon, was considered one of the most important collectors for supplying Berlin’s Botanical Museum. The photographic project of Yana Wernicke and Jonas Feige is dedicated to the history and effects of his life in Africa.

For the current exhibition "Zenkeri" at Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin, the two photographers traveled multiple times to today’s Republic of Cameroon to document the remains of Zenker’s villa in remote Bipindi in the middle of the jungle, as well as to portray the descendants still living there.

► Worth the visit on every single day of the week: The Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin is open Mon-Sun from 9am - 7pm. "Zenkeri" will be on view until 6 JAN.

The two photographers’ works speak not of nostalgia, but of a great curiosity coming from two people, with very different backgrounds, wandering the streets and recording the present moment...

EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography

For her work “Wondelgemse Meersen” which is currently on view at Kleiner Raum für aktuelles Nichts, Stephanie Kiwitt photographed fallow land north of Ghent.

Using a highly cropped perspective, Kiwitt focuses her camera on the state of materials; without ever offering an overall view of the region, she explores the chaos and dilapidated dwellings with fascination, the rubbish and proliferation of nature.

► “Wondelgemse Meersen” is on view at Kleiner Raum für aktuelles Nichts until 3 NOV. The space is open tomorrow, WED and SAT, from noon - 7pm.

The Kleiner Raum für aktuelles Nichts is - by the way - an only eight-square-meter space where founder Michael Disqué searches for nothingness in various ways: in exhibitions, performances, and readings.

#emopberlin

Based on the long-term photographic project “Archiv für aktuelles Nichts”, in which he explored the aesthetic of the random and worthless, as well as legacies, Michael Disqué founded the Kleiner Raum für aktuelles Nichts in early 2017 to expand this search to the immaterial. In the eight-squa...

Anatol Kotte – #meetthepro

Wer es verpasst hat und nicht dabei sein konnte: Am vergangenen Samstag erhielten interessierte Gäste bei einem Studiobesuch in den Capitis Studios / Berlin einen Einblick in das Berufsleben des renommierten Portrait-Fotografen Anatol Kotte.

Vor dessen Kamera standen schon fast alle, die national oder international Rang und Namen haben – Schauspieler, Celebrities, viele Politiker.

In unserem #meetthepro Video erzählt Anatol Kotte am Beispiel von Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel über die Herausforderungen und Möglichkeiten, die die Portrait-Fotografie speziell im Hinblick auf Politiker mit sich bringt.

Und er erzählt über sein bisher schwierigsten Portrait, das er für die Serie "Ich habe einen Traum" des ZEIT Magazins machte: Das Portrait von Kermit dem Frosch.

For all who missed this: The BFF now and again presents various exhibitions in Berlin, in other German cities and internationally.

At Kehrer Galerie, Austrian photographer Gregor Sailer came for an artist talk where he explained the development of his newest series "The Potemkin Village" which will be on view until 17 NOV. EMOP Berlin team met Gregor Sailer before the show opening.

EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography

One of the later exhibition openings during this year's EMOP Berlin and now on view: "Julio Cortázar—Visible Invisible" at Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut - Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin-Mitte.

The exhibition is a photographic essay by Argentinean photographer Antonio Fernández, inquiring into the possibilities of transposing Julio Cortázar's literature into photography. Cortázar (1914–1984) as an Argentine writer was keenly interested in photography – an inspiring basis for Fernández' project: For the exhibition, he installs his work in two friezes that wrap around the room; in the institute’s reading room, visitors can “read” and decipher them, much like a story.

► "Julio Cortázar—Visible Invisible" will be on view at Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut - Preußischer Kulturbesitz until 30 NOV.

#emopberlin

The fantastic stories of Argentine writer Julio Cortázar (1914–1984) secured him a place in world literature. He was also keenly interested in photography. His story Las babas del diablo (Blow-Up), which served as the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni’s Film Blow Up, addresses the strange experi...

EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography

The processes of defoliation and transillumination are defining aspects of Rémy Markowitsch’s artistic approach.

In the exhibition and book project "On Travel" (1998–2005) which is on view at Galerie EIGEN + ART Leipzig/Berlin during EMOP Berlin, Markowitsch combines the technique of transillumination with quotations from literary and academic publications and adds an audio component to the multilayered visual quotations.

► The gallery EIGEN + ART in Berlin-Mitte shows "On Travel" until 31 OCT. Today, opening hours are 11am-6pm.

Happy Weekend!

EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography

This might already be the penultimate weekend of EMOP Berlin but it will be once again a weekend full of photography up to the top!

► From 19-21 OCT, more than 50 photographers of the BFF Berufsverband Freie Fotografen und Filmgestalter will present their works on the subject "Reverse Forward" at Kesselhaus & Maschinenhaus (Kulturbrauerei). The spectrum here ranges from notions of backwards, of reversal and a passive pause to an assertive pressing forward, striking out, an active transmission.

The programme is extremely diverse: Starting with the opening reception tonight in presence of all photographers of the exhibition, there will be additional lectures offering a peek behind the scenes in professional photography, as well as portfolio reviews.

Step by, it's Friday!

Ich bin zwar des Englischen mächtig, frage mich aber trotzdem, warum Infos Veranstaltungen, die in Berlin stattfindet, nicht auch in deutscher Sprache geteilt werden. Nicht jeder Interessent spricht Englisch, vielleicht nicht einmal jeder aus dem europäischen und nichteuropäischen Ausland. In keinem anderen Land habe ich bisher erlebt, dass Informationen, Ankündigen usw. nicht auch in der Landessprache veröffentlicht werden.
