EASTREET 4. Photography of Eastern Europe
Open Call: extended until Friday 28th July 2017 (midnight EET)
Exhibition opening and book launch: 20 October 2017
Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin, Poland
Welcome to the Fourth instalment Eastreet – a unique project dedicated to street and documentary photography of the broadly defined Eastern Europe. Eastreet is the largest initiative of this kind – close to 20.000 photos were submitted to the previous editions, and more than 300 photos by authors from 22 countries were presented in form of exhibition and publication.
The Open Call for the Eastreet 4 runs from 12 June until 23 July 2017. Don’t miss it!
Once more we would like to have a closer look at human presence within the public spaces of Eastern Europe through a selection of photos documenting unique moments, ideas or symbols. We are looking for candid photos which can help us to visually describe the region, present its current state and unique qualities, but also photos that will encourage us to look at Eastern Europe beyond stereotypes, borders and differences. The goal of Eastreet is to create a diverse portrait of the complex region through the photography exhibition and book publication.
Photos selected by a group of Curators will be presented in the form of a gallery exhibition, as well as an additional outdoor installation in the Lublin city space. We will also publish a special book presenting all the selected photographs together with authors’ biographies. Each participating author will receive the book from us free of charge, by post, soon after its premiere at the exhibition opening. The publication will be also distributed within a specially selected group of international institutions, galleries, artists and curators.
The opening of Eastreet 4 will take place on 20 October 2017 at the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin, Poland, but the exhibition will be traveling after the initial show comes to an end. We’ve presented the previous exhibitions at the Organ Vida Festival in Croatia, Kolga Festival in Georgia, Odessa/Batumi Photo Days, also in France, Belgium, and as a slideshow at the Angkor Photo Festival in Cambodia, in Thailand and at other locations. So far approximately 20.000 people have visited Eastreet in total. We would like to reach as wide audiences as possible to promote the art of photography and photographers from Eastern Europe, to present their work in galleries, at festivals and at other institutions, as well as to attract the attention of international curators. The idea of Eastreet is constantly evolving. We would like it to become a platform for communication, education and inspiration for photographers working in the region.
Curators team: Joanna Kinowska, Aleksander Bochenek, Tomasz Kulbowski, Grzegorz Ostrega.
