The Open Call for the C/O Berlin Talent Award 2023 in the category Theorist starts on Apr 1, 2023!
The C/O Berlin Talent Award is the only prize of its kind in Europe. It recognizes outstanding work in both photographic practice and theory. It is awarded annually in the disciplines of artistic photography (Artist) and photo-theoretical writing (Theorist) and is endowed with prize money of totally €10,000 (to be shared between both positions). C/O Berlin produces a solo exhibition with the award-winning artist and a publication with Spector Books to accompany it.
The task of the theorist is to write an essay on the selected artwork and to conduct an interview with the artist, both of which will appear in the book. The winning project of the C/O Berlin Talent Award 2023 in the Artist category (procedure already completed) can be located in the field of artistic research and visual archives and deals with the themes of anthropology and sociality as well as the relationship between human and nature.
Please submit your texts dealing with current photography in a broader context and thematically related to the winning project in German or English from Apr 1 – 28, 2023 via the online form (available from Apr 1).
