In September 2022, a significant photo festival will take place in Kaiserslautern, Germany, for the first time. The focus will be on strong international visual concepts of contemporary art.
The project is a cooperation between the Kulturzentrum Kammgarn, the City of Kaiserslautern and the local photography scene. The festival will take place on three levels: a selection of internationally known artists, as well as regionally established photography positions, and last but not least, works by up-and-coming local artists. A particular focus will be on Eastern Europe by showing photographs from the Czech National Museum of Photography. The Erich Salomon Prize winner of the German Society for Photography, Hans-Jürgen Burkard, will show works from Russia. The selection of the festival contributions meets the highest quality standards and is guaranteed by the curatorial team of the two Kaiserslautern photography artists, Thomas Brenner (DFA) and Jörg Heieck (DGPh).
