Since 2004, Germany's largest photography festival has been presenting the entire spectrum of historical and contemporary photography in Berlin every two years. Museums, cultural institutions, galleries, project spaces, embassies and photography schools in Berlin and Potsdam present numerous exhibition projects and events, selected by an expert jury.
The formats range from outdoor exhibitions and large museum presentations, to individual and group presentations in galleries and project spaces, to impressive contributions from many foreign cultural institutions and embassies as well as the municipal art and cultural offices.
This year's edition of EMOP Berlin will open on October 1 at the Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz together with the central exhibition CONTINENT- In Search of Europe by the photo agency OSTKREUZ.
The EMOP Opening Days will also take place there and, in cooperation with the Academy, will offer a diverse program for the photo community and all those interested in photography until October 4.
The project EMOP Berlin - Euopean Month of Photography 2020 is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
