Die Veranstaltung „Photographer’s Night“ gilt seit Jahren als ein besonderes Highlight des Festivals. Sie findet in diesem Jahr am 22. September, um 20:00 Uhr, wieder im Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln, statt.

Wie in den Jahren zuvor geben, auf Grundlage der Projektion ausgewählter Arbeiten, ergänzt durch Vorträge und moderierte Gespräche, renommierte Photographen/innen wie aktuelle Newcomer Einblicke in ihre photographischen Positionen, ihre individuellen Ziele und Arbeitsweisen.

"Ikonen der Flucht - Die neue Macht der Photographie"


ist das Thema der „Photographer’s Night 2016“.

Die dramatischen Entwicklungen der letzten zwei Jahre und die dabei besondere Rolle der Photographie sind der Auslöser, das Thema "Ikonen der Flucht - Die neue Macht der Photographie" in den Mittelpunkt des Abends zu stellen.
Schon lange nicht mehr haben stehende Bilder den Betrachter so stark berührt und politische Entscheidungen beeinflusst.

Die renommierten Photographen Daniel Etter (Redux/laif), er hat 2016 für ein Bild irakischer Flüchtlinge den Pulitzerpreis erhalten, Sibylle Fendt, Fotografin (Ostkreuz) und Dozentin für Fotografie und der preisgekrönte Fotojournalist Nikos Pilos (laif) aus Athen werden in dieser Nacht der Photographie mit ihren Arbeiten vorgestellt.

Durch den Abend führt Andreas Trampe, Stern Bildredaktion (Director of Photography)

Tickets (19,90 € zzgl. 2,40 € VVK-Gebühr) hier, oder Resttickets (24,50 €) ab 18:30 Uhr an der Abendkasse (Einlaß ab 19:30 Uhr).
