AnalogueNOW! - International Open Call for analogue photography


• Deadline: January 28th, 2024

• Prize: Exhibition in Berlin (Germany)

• Category: Analogue Photography

• Entry Fees: Free (Pay if Selected)


Following the impactful exhibition "Transition" in 2022, Fotogalerie Friedrichshain and analogueNOW! proudly announce their second collaborative endeavor, inviting film photographers and artists proficient in analogue techniques to participate in an upcoming international group exhibition themed "Excess."

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom – William Blake

"Excess" is often perceived negatively: from exceeding speed limits to environmentally damaging overconsumption, or even the association with pleasure causing guilt or potential peril, or death. This theme traverses personal domains, manifesting in self-harm or self-expression through the body and mind, observed in overindulgence in food, substances, or emotions. Within analogue photography, excess in light, movement, or exposure time is deemed a hindrance.

The concept of excess is relative, demanding reflection on its societal norms and regulation. Is it a deviation or a demand for increased freedom? Is it a path to wisdom or a restraint?

Participation in the Open Call: Projects and Application Artists are invited to explore the theme of "excess" across social, environmental, political, or intimate perspectives or within analogue photographic processes. Projects submitted should be recent (completed in the last 5 years), allowing long-term projects within this timeframe or works based on archival material.
