The Juror — foto forum
Founded in 1994, foto forum (website / Instagram / Facebook) is a platform for contemporary photography that promotes the understanding and the practice of the photographic medium through a series of exhibitions, workshops, talks and other events. In particular, its program of exhibitions is designed to present a wide range of photographic works—from documentary to fine art—and to include both established photographers and up-and-coming talents. In recent years, foto forum welcomed celebrated practitioners like Erik Kessels, Guido Guidi, Rinko Kawauchi and Peter Bialobrzeski, as well as emerging photographers like Laia Abril, Max Pinckers, Daisuke Yokota, and Rob Hornstra, along with journalist Arnold van Bruggen, with their The Sochi Project. The gallery is currently exhibiting Realpolitik, a project by Luca Santese e Marco P. Valli, two members of the Italian collective Cesura (Launch the slideshow in this article to see installation shots of previous exhibitions at foto forum; turn on the captions for details about each image).
foto forum is located in Bozen (or Bolzano), a picturesque city nestled in a valley on the Italian Alps and the capital city of South Tyrol, an autonomous and historical province where German and Italian cultures cross-contaminate one another.
The Opportunity — Have a solo exhibition at foto forum
In line with their mission to support talented photographers, foto forum is offering the winner of this #FotoRoomOPEN edition the opportunity of having a 4-5 week solo exhibition at their gallery in 2020 (exact dates will be established at a later time).
