C/O Berlin – Talents 2011

C/O Berlin – Talents 2011

C/O Berlin is seeking young photographers and art critics for their 2011 Talents series of exhibitions. The theme this year is Cinematic Thinking and applications will be accepted until December 31, 2010.

The Talents series of exhibitions is really a fantastic opportunity for an artist just getting started. If chosen, the artist will be featured in a solo exhibition at one of Europe's premiere photography institutions as well as have an accompanying catalogue published which includes an essay written by an art critic.

From the newsletter I received this morning:

"In 2011, the Talents series will focus on the theme of Cinematic Thinking. Engagement with the medium of film has become ever more central to photography in recent years. This can be seen in the increasing exploration of film production processes, experimentation with narrative structures, and references to film aesthetics and film myths. How can photography adapt film structures and simulaneously break them open? What strengths do still images have over moving pictures? Photography in the classical sense, with its conventional wall presentation, can be expanded through the utilization of projection and installation strategies, thereby creating new possibilities for reflecting on the medium of photography itself.

How do you apply? Photographers under the age of 35 can submit up to 15 samples of their work in print form – maximal size DIN A4, no originals. A short project description should accompany the photographs, as well as the application form that van be completed online on the C/O Berlin homepage. A fee of 20 Euros will be raised. Please note that art critics are welcome to submit samples of their work at any time."
