September 9 -November 5, 2017
The Biennale for Contemporary Photography entitled Farewell Photography is being held this year for the first time following the Photo Festival in Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg.
Since the first display in 2005, the Biennale has established itself in Germany as one of the most internationally important curated photographic events. The Biennale for Contemporary Photography will continue to distinguish itself through its concept of biennial curatorship rotation which continually addresses new aspects of contemporary photography in dialog with the individual artists of the metropolitan region of the three event host cities and the local, national and international visitors. Last count, there were over 35 000 visitors to the festival.
Pay What You Want (PWYW): The entrance fee is determined by the visitors themselves. Instead of the usual fee of 7 Euro to get in, there will be a voluntary donation to get out. Pay stations are located at the end of the exhibition where visitors can pay what they feel is an appropriate amount. The Biennale recommendation is 7 Euro per exhibition location.
