BREAKING POINT. SEARCHING FOR CHANGE.

A BREAKING POINT is a critical moment in the process of change. It is a time when we can no longer search for new goals or values but must immediately take a new direction. Photography has an ability to freeze time and bring focus to such moments.

The Triennial of Photography Hamburg will be an attempt to raise awareness. The festival program is a humanistic statement on sustainability and change. It is an inspiration and an invitation to act.

We use keyboard commands hundreds of times a day without thinking about their original meaning. These words will become exhibition titles and together will form a collective story about modern society:

  • [ENTER] on breaking points and the necessity for change
  • [HOME] on belonging, safety, migration, and nomadism
  • [CONTROL] on politics, the economy, and power
  • [SPACE] on urbanism, alienation, anonymity, and street life
  • [SHIFT] on personal change, paradigm shifts, and alternation
  • [RETURN] on roots, heritage, and learning from the past
  • [DELETE] on censorship and images removed from visual culture
  • [ESCAPE] on environmental changes and ecological emergencies

About

Since 1999, the Triennial of Photography has taken place every three years in Hamburg in collaboration with the city’s major museums, cultural institutions, galleries, and other organizers. Meanwhile, the festival has become an important event throughout Germany and internationally. With a large number of exhibitions under a common theme, it highlights current topics in photography. The festival features conversations with artists, thematic discussions, lectures, portfolio viewings, and an international conference.

The Triennial of Photography originated as an initiative of the photographer and collector F. C. Gundlach. Since 2014, the event has been organized by Deichtorhallen Hamburg GmbH.

The theme of the 7th Triennial of Photography in 2018 will be BREAKING POINT. SEARCHING FOR CHANGE

Krzysztof Candrowicz will serve as artistic director of the upcoming Triennial of Photography for a second time after the festival in 2015.
