About:

Landskrona Foto Festival’s open call looks for bodies of work exploring photographic practices engaged in collaborative processes through activism, photography of protest, art as a provocation, and social justice engagement.

Photography, who is it for?

The question first appeared in 1976 the "Statement of Aims" by the Camerawork photography collective. Landskrona Foto Festival 2022 uses the same question as the starting point of reflection about its purpose and how the festival can serve its diverse audiences today.

Photographer's collectives formed in the 70s in London to respond to a time of protest, when legislation for equality and race relations was being introduced, and there was a renewed hope to do things differently. They created community photography to operate outside the mainstream media and institutions. Their inspiration came from the counterculture and the Women liberation movements non-hierarchical modes of organising and rejecting top-down structures. They explored new dissemination and exhibition strategies using tape-slide, ink copiers, printers and exhibited in launderettes and shops in housing estates. They hoped to contribute through photography towards social change and the reimagining of the post-war city. The festival theme aims to understand photography's utility and role for change in society today.

The open call welcomes multidisciplinary projects engaged in all types of visual representation, fictional or documentary, using the tools of photography, video, archive, installation, performance, intervention, digital art, code and web platforms. We are looking for works that challenge and question established ideas of engagement.
