David Campany appointed Curator—Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie 2020


After the successful first edition of the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie, which took place in 2017 as the successor to the Fotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg under the direction of a curatorial team headed by Florian Ebner and Christin Müller, the 2nd Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie will be curated by English writer and curator David Campany, as announced by the festival’s board on October 4, 2018. The 2nd Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie will take place between February 29 and April 26, 2020.

Dietrich Skibelski, chairman of the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie: “We are extremely pleased about our cooperation with David Campany. Not only were we convinced by his recent curatorial projects and the range of topics he has dealt with; his work as a writer and, in his own words, as an ‘image maker’ also fit very well with the many aspects that comprise the Biennale: exciting exhibitions, a varied supporting programme and the opportunity to initiate a broad and deep discourse about the photographic medium. His experience in the transmission of art and his direct connection to the young art scene, attained through his 25 years as a university lecturer, provide a lot of impetus to our project, which is why we are looking forward to the 2020 Biennale.”
