Teaser gives the scene to women

On Friday, 8 March, the International Women’s Day, it is time for this year’s Teaser. For our future festival visitors, or if you are interested in exhibiting at the festival – this is meant as an inspiration. The event will be a special evening with a mix of photography, photo art and photo talks with an international touch. Free admission.

We welcome the multifaceted Swedish-French photo artist Karin Crona who lives in Paris since many years. In her talk, ‘The Body – a condition’, she talks about how she works with her self-image from an artistic perspective. Crona has explored the self-portrait for over ten years through different genres and techniques. Her artwork is inspired by l’art brut (ie primitive art) and surrealism, characterized by a sense of humour and Scandinavian melancholy. Take part of her stories, performance videos and creative processes. She is also exhibiting a selection of her collage art.

The Israeli photo journalist Daniel Tchetchik works at one of Israel’s bigger newspapers; Haaretz, and visits us to show and talk about the photo series “The year that was, through the eyes of Israeli women” – Image of the Year 2018 Women. A year that in many ways can be described as the women’s year in Israel and worldwide; a shift of society in what is actually allowed, and what is prohibited. For this reason, the newspaper gave the scene to the women behind the camera – both amateurs and professionals, and in return, they got a broad perspective of the past year.

New application rule for
returning photographers

To make sure that the festival has a diversified exhibition programme each year, the board has determined to only let returning photographers exhibit three festivals in a row. The photographer is allowed to apply to the festival’s individual exhibition programme a forth year, but only as a part of a group of at least four persons.
