The photo festival EMOP Berlin – European Month of Photography takes place from October 1 to 31, 2020.
Established in 2004, the EMOP Berlin – European Month of Photography is Germany’s largest photo festival. The bi-annual event is dedicated to presenting a vast range of historic and contemporary photography in various venues across the German capital. This year’s edition is set to take place from October 1 to 31.
The featured works have been selected by an expert jury, and are exhibited in museums, cultural institutions, galleries, project spaces, embassies and photography schools in Potsdam and Berlin. This year’s festival programme includes the solo show Hagiographie Biorobotica by Andreas Mühe (opens on October 9 at the St. Matthew Church, Berlin), as well as the series Palermo and the Fight against the Mafia by the legendary photographer Letizia Battaglia, which has been on show at the Italian Cultural Institute since October 9.
The festival programme also includes artist & book talks, as well as screenings of rarely shown films during the EMOP Opening Days. Another highlight is a live presentation by photographers Katja Ruge, Benita Suchodrev, Miron Zownir and Olaf Heine, offering insights into their past and present work.
