C|O Berlin Competition: Talents 2011


Talents is an international competition held annually. The jury of professional judges selects four photographers and four art critics each year from the submitted entries. Their work is presented in four solo exhibitions at C/O Berlin over the course of the year and at the Goethe Institute in New York City. Each solo exhibition is accompanied by a publication in which images and text enter into dialogue: talented young artists present themselves and their projects to a broad public, open up their work for discussion, and thus create a public forum.


Talents 2011

In 2011, the Talents series will focus on the theme of Cinematic Thinking. Engagement with the medium of film has become ever more central to photography in recent years. This can be seen in the increasing exploration of film production processes, experimentation with narrative structures, and references to film aesthetics and film myths. How can photography adapt film structures and simulaneously break them open? What strengths do still images have over moving pictures? Photography in the classical sense, with its conventional wall presentation, can be expanded through the utilization of projection and installation strategies, thereby creating new possibilities for reflecting on the medium of photography itself.
