Exhibit! – From the idea to the picture on the wall.

Producing outstanding photographic works alone is not enough. From conception and production to presentation and distribution, a photographic project must meet numerous requirements in order to be shown. Municipal galleries, renowned museums or public spaces: each exhibition venue places different demands on photographers in terms of content and technology.

In addition to a coherent exhibition concept, an aesthetically outstanding visual language and a professional realisation, the projects must transport relevant topics in a catchy way and appeal to a large, diverse audience in both form and content. Additional components, for example publications, multimedia presentations and concepts for education and outreach work, increase the chances of attracting the attention of curators and museum directors to your work.

The know-how required for this as well as the various aspects of the conception and realisation of an exhibition in cooperation with a national or international exhibition institution are the subject of the workshop. The speaker Katharina Mouratidi, artistic director of f³ – freiraum für fotografie, has been conceiving, planning and realising exhibitions with the most diverse cooperation partners at home and abroad for over 25 years. Together with her, the participants will develop concepts for their individual exhibition projects.

Katharina Mouratidi is the artistic director of f³ – freiraum für fotografie. Located near Oranienplatz in Berlin-Kreuzberg, f³ – freiraum für fotografie presents outstanding photography exhibitions on the current issues of our time, including renowned positions in the history of photography as well as young, up-and-coming photographers and photo artists. These exhibitions are accompanied by regular talks, discussion events and workshops.

In her function, Katharina Mouratidi has been planning, curating and realising photography exhibitions and projects on socially relevant topics for many years, including: A Life In Death by American photographer Nancy Borowick (2017), The Heavens by Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti (2018), Where Love is Illegal by Robin Hammond (2018), Greenpeace Photo Award with works by Pablo E. Piovano and Ian Willms (2019), ZEIT-ZEUG:INNEN – Icons of Photojournalism (2020), HIDDEN – Animals in the Anthropocene (2021), Ruth Orkin – A Photo Spirit (2021/2022) and Tina Modotti – Revolution and Passion (2022/2023).
