Krakow Photomonth Festival 2014
15 May – 15 June 2014

The curator of this year’s Krakow Photomonth, which bears the title Re:Search, is the artist, writer, editor and curator, Aaron Schuman. The festival’s Main Programme, focusing on the relationship between photography and the search for knowledge, features exhibitions of both renowned Polish and international photographers and artists, many of whom are showcased in this part of Europe for the very first time. The Photomonth month-long programme is also crammed full of numerous workshops, meetings and film projections. The festival is organised by the Foundation for Visual Arts.

It explores various ways in which photography is entangled in the service of knowledge (or lack of it), and the process of searching for facts, truths, answers and meanings through photography. The 12th edition is also an attempt to uncover the roles played by photography as well as a celebration of its various values as a high-potential independent form of research and investigation in its own right.

The events accompanying the exhibitions at Photomonth 2014 are an integral part of the festival’s Main Programme. Throughout the month, workshops, film projections, and meetings with artists will take place. These will include the Masters Series encounters begun in 2013 – an excellent opportunity to get to know the work of interesting artists, take part in discussions, exchange experiences, and perhaps even learn the secrets of the best sessions. Traditionally this year the Portfolio Review will be the flagship element of the Accompanying Events programme of the Krakow Photomonth.

This unique opportunity to meet and get valuable tips from experts often produces spectacular results, including decisions to work together in exhibitions and publications – it’s well worth it! All the more as this year it is accompanied by an attractive prize founded by Griffin Art Space, the Patron of the 2014 Krakow Photomonth, and a presentation of the best portfolios incorporated into the programme of the festival, started off with an open meeting with the participants and reviewers during the special Portfolio Evening.
