From March 18 to June 11, 2023, the German village of Worpswede – which has long been known for its thriving artists’ community – will once again revolve entirely around photography: under the heading of ‘Turning Point. Turning World’, the fourth edition of the RAW Photo Triennal places a focus on the pivotal developments that characterise our world today – be it technological innovations, environmental catastrophes, demographic upheavals or socio-cultural paradigm shifts.
Worpswede’s Museum Association, which comprises four different venues, will host the exhibitions #EGO, #FAKE, #NEXT, and #RISK – featuring exciting new approaches by 24 young photographers and video artists. The 2023 edition marks the first time the festival has been curated by an international team. Most of the displayed works have never been showcased in Germany.
The represented artists include: Marina Caneve, whose photographs explore how our knowledge is shaped by research-based and multi-disciplinary approaches; Léa Habourdin, who uses photography and drawings to observe our relationship to animals and landscapes; Laura Pannack, whose portrait and social documentary photography addresses the complex relationship between subject and photographer; and Max Pinckers, LOBA winner in 2018, whose work centres on the critical, technological and ideological structures surrounding the production and consumption of documentary images.
