Fotofestival Lenzburg 6th edition

We are pleased to announce the open call for the 6th edition of Fotofestival Lenzburg. The competition is open to all types of photography and is aimed at photographers from near and far. A distinguished international jury will select the projects that show a deep understanding of the theme “SYNTHESIS” and exhibit a unique artistic style.

We understand synthesis as a process that enhances something by combining multiple elements. Yet, the resulting ensemble is greater than its individual parts – not because the individual parts don’t matter or don’t matter equally, but because they fundamentally do. More on the topic here.

Lust*Art is looking forward to discovering new artists to collaborate with for the 2023 exhibition. The exhibition will feature Kunsttage Basel 2023 from 25th to 27th August.
Please send your portfolio to lustart@luststreifen.com

Deadline: 02th July
Subject line: Your Name - OPEN CALL | Lust*Art
Please attach: portfolio (max 10mb), artist statement. A project proposal is welcomed but not mandatory

If your application is selected, Lust*Art will contact you by the end of July
