Athens Photo Festival attempts to bring together a wide range of perspectives of emerging and established artists and photographers from all over the world with the aim to raise awareness and foster an understanding of contemporary culture and society through photography in all its forms. The exhibition programme will be comprised of a series of solo and group exhibitions, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through an international open call for proposals in combination with invited artists.
The 2016 main programme will take place from 9 June until 31 July 2016, at the Benaki Museum, one of the oldest and most prestigious museums in Greece.
This year’s main theme, under the title [mis/dis]placed, is aimed at investigating how collective consciousness and individual identity and position are shaped, in relation to the fast-changing global situation, intertwining both politics and poetics. In particular, it is interested in raising questions about the prevailing notions of place and memory as fundamental elements of identity formation while reassessing the role that the means of visualizing can play within these concepts.
