WAZZUP?
WHAT'S UP is mutating into WAZZUP - hype, one change is chasing the other.
What was out yesterday is in today - and the other way around.
This is valid not only in the normal daily use of language; it is manifesting itself also in art-trends.
Who is in, who is favored and pushed?
Apart from invisible tendencies, we wish with our contribution the Month of Photography in its metropolitan density and scope to make it visible and appreciated.
A celebration of photography!
From all participating cities (Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Bratislava, Moscow, Luxembourg, Rom) 3 theorists and other specialists in the area of artistic photography are requested to name 3 artists from their respective city/country who are currently noteworthy in the area of photography and new media.
Selection Criteria's: young or unfamiliar artists.
Through the overlapping of the submitted proposals one person per city/country will be chosen and invited to present one exemplary and recent work.
From all nominated artists, portfolios will be on hand for viewing in the exhibition.

IDEA:
Making artistic tendencies visible
A celebration of photography
The extent of the entire project - Month of Photography - creation of transparency
