Topic // Exhibition locationsFrom 14.9. to 10.11.2013 the 5th Fotofestival will be presented under the title GRENZGÄNGE. MAGNUM: TRANS-TERRITORIES at eight renowned institutions of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. Besides the exhibition locations so far - Kunsthalle Mannheim, ZEPHYR - Raum für Fotografie der Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen, Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Kunstverein Ludwigshafen and Kunstverein Heidelberg, Sammlung Prinzhorn along with Halle 02 - this year, Stadtgalerie Mannheim is also on board as a new institution. The works by Alessandra Sanguinetti and Donovan Wylie will be on show here, created within the scope of the already announced special project "Insight Out" on the topic of conversion in Mannheim. Last December, the Festival invited the two photographers to examine and document, on location, the upheavals caused by the American soldiers' withdrawal.
Curator // Magnum PhotosAndréa Holzherr, curator and exhibition manager at the photo agency and photographers' co-operative Magnum Photos in Paris, is selecting for the Festival Magnum photographers who, in different ways, have been dealing with the facets of "territory". In addition, she is initiating a dialogue between photography and other artistic means of expression. A comprehensive supporting programme will accompany the eight exhibitions this year.
Our preparations are proceeding apace and we, with our partners, are looking forward to an exciting 5th Fotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg.
