Open call (Closed)
Submission deadline: 28th February 2017. The open-call are under review in Mars 2017
To exhibit at this year’s biennale send your project description and images to firstname.lastname@example.org (Email’s subject: Open Call 2017). Malmö Fotobiennal takes place in the south of Sweden, 30 minutes by train from Copenhagen in Denmark. On its eighth edition we are looking for projects to occupy gallery spaces and also to participate in outdoor exhibitions around the city.
This edition of Malmö Fotobiennal celebrates 50 years since the release of the essay The Society of the Spectacle by French philosopher Guy Debord. Debord devoted his book to understand the structure in which we are living in, where the social relations are interpolated by a society of representations, the being is replaced into having and appearing. To be is to consume, and the images serve as a mediator of the spectacle. We take his work and his concepts as a starting point for Malmö Fotobiennal 2017, an attempt to understand how these ideas would apply to the use of Photography today.
