The Krakow Photomonth Festival will take place from May 12 to June 12, 2016, for the 14th time. With the motto “Crisis? What Crisis?”, the festival aims to show how present-day crises affect our immediate, daily life – publicly and privately. In addition to the great political, economical and humanitarian problems, the focus will also be on aspects such as individuality and trust in a globalized world.
The festival in Krakow is curated by the German social anthropologist Lars Willumeit. Nine exhibitions will present works by renowned national and international photographers and photographer collectives. Paul Graham, for example, presents his view of the New Europe, Aneta Grzeszykowska deals with the transience and irrelevance of human existence, and the Sputnik Photos collective’s Lost Territories. Phase Zero project reveals dysfunctional infrastructures in five former Soviet Union states.
A diversity of other events such as portfolio reviews, debates and meetings round of the colourful programme.
