5th FOTOFESTIVAL: THE ANALYSISWith Grenzgänge. Magnum: Trans-Territories the Festival's curator Andréa Holzherr presented the biggest overview of Magnum photography in Germany to date. In total, 43,000 visitors saw the exhibitions and took part in the more than 190 events in the supporting programme - thus setting a new record in terms of visitor numbers. The curatorial concept - to bring the photographs into a dialogue with other artistic works - successfully helped to cut across boundaries between media within the Festival exhibitions and was positively appraised by visitors and the press. Top marks are also awarded to the Festival by the visitor feedback analysis, which was performed for the first time. The suggestions and proposals arising from the interviews will help us, when planning the Festival in the future, to take account of our audience's interests as well, alongside the curatorial decisions.
THANK YOU!We thank the curator, all photographers and artists, our partners, supporters, and the many exhibition visitors and participants in workshops and discussions. All of them made the successful anniversary of Fotofestival Mannheim_Ludwigshafen_Heidelberg possible. We look forward very much to the lively and inspiring dialogue on various – by far not only photographic – topics during the two months of the Festival in Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg.
The Fotofestival will take place on the next and therefore sixth occasion from September to November 2015. We'll be publishing up-to-date information on our website www.fotofestival.info and on Facebook. We'd be delighted to see you with us again.
To mark the year's end we would like to wish you a restful holiday season and a good start to the new year.
