Triennial of Photography Hamburg

Hamburg / DE
– 30.09.2018
phototriennale.de 

Since 1999, every three years, photography has been given a special focus in Hamburg, with viewers having the opportunity to see the world from different perspectives. This year’s event looks at the meaning of the moment you press the button in the process of change. Photographs have the potential to capture a moment, pause time, and initiate change in the observer. The slogan of this year’s seventh edition of the photography festival is “Breaking Point. Searching for Change”. It reflects current ecological, social, political, and economic movements and the current “experience of reality” in times of upheaval. The Triennial of Photography offers a wide range of works from the photographic genre, which can be viewed in various museums, exhibition halls, and galleries and at different art venues across Hamburg.

Breda Photo Festival

Breda / NL
– 21.10.2018
bredaphoto.nl 

Under the banner “To Infinity and Beyond” the Breda photography festival explores the forms of change and evolution that lead to continuous advances in technology and science. Over 55 national and international photographers have taken the opportunity to visually capture the dangers and dilemmas of technological progress and the challenges that we already experience in the present as well as those that we are likely to face in the future. New inventions inevitably have two sides to them: What if robots don’t merely simplify our lives, but instead create mass unemployment and financial and social inequality? What happens when machines and knowledge about genetic engineering fall into the wrong hands? If you can change the genes of a mosquito to make the malaria virus disappear, can you also manipulate them to carry a new virus? The Anthropogenic age, where man is the decisive factor in environmental change is simultaneously characterised by infinite possibility and great danger to the environment, humanity, and life itself.

These include, for example, the Currents School, dealing with the dissemination, hierarchy, and networking of information and topics; the Earth School, focusing on aspects such as nature, the relationship of mankind with its home planet and evolution; and the Unmaking School, looking at creativity, innovation, and future scenarios.

As in 2011, Poland has been selected as the guest country. The “The ABCs of Polish Design” exhibition is dedicated to the past 100 years of design history of this country, amongst other things.

Biennale Interieur

Kortrijk / BE
18.10.2018 – 22.10.2018
interieur.be 

The first edition of the Biennale Interieur 50 years ago took place in the spirit of the 1968 movement. Back then, people wanted to rebel against the established idea of good design, break new ground, and involve the general public. Since then, the event has become a permanent fixture in the design landscape. In 2018, the event will be reduced to five days and more attention will be paid to the topics of business and entrepreneurship. Once again, the main venue is the Xpo congress centre. This year’s scenography was created by Studio Verter and is inspired by the basic functional principles of the urban space. The Biennale’s programme continues in the centre of Kortrijk, with a special venue being a former hospital. Again this year, The Floor Is Yours serves as a platform for young designers, new studios, collaborations, and universities.

milanodesignfilmfestival.com 

For the past six years every autumn, the Milano Design Film Festival has transformed the Anteo Palazzo del Cinema in the heart of Milan into a four-day meeting place for enthusiasts of architecture and design. During this time, around 50 screenings provide an insight into the current cinematic examination of this topic. The aim is to provide a stage for films that are not included in the programmes of major cinemas. This year, the festival’s main theme is “Fast-Changing”. The conflict between future vision and history, technology and tradition, digitisation and materiality is considered, culminating in the questions: “What to keep, what to change, how to recycle, what to destroy?”
