Fotofestiwal 2019

Klaus Pichler

Manifest

Since the beginning, Fotofestiwal has always intended to tackle seminal social issues and contribute to the wider debate on culture and society. As a fairly modern medium which dominates the visual sphere, photography harbors the potential for demonstrating a broad perspective on the current global shifts. Last year, dozens of art projects and group shows pored over the human relation to nature.
The upcoming 18th edition (13-30 June) of the festival encourages you to delve into the supernatural aspects of existence and reality, as well as into the speculative and hypothetical phenomena that defy explanation based on the purely empirical evidence. What does the supernatural stand for? How can we make sense of reality while departing from the scientifically validated knowledge and senses?
