Issue 15 – “The collectivity issue”




For issue 15, titled “The collectivity issue”, we are thrilled to announce a special approach to our guest-editing. Instead of working with one artist, we have chosen to invite a total of 50 artists to each guest-edit a single spread within the publication. The invited artists will juxtapose one of their images with an image they select from the open call.

We invite you to submit work that corresponds with your own perception of collectivity.

Der Greif is a registered non-profit. We believe this organizational structure best reflects our artistic and cultural mission. As always, your artistic contribution makes our work on Der Greif possible.

This year we are asking you to consider making a financial contribution as well. That's why we're suggesting a voluntary donation of 12 € as a submission fee. 100% of the funds we collect from your donations will go towards helping us produce issue 15.

We believe in inclusivity. We don't want this suggested donation to stand in the way of your submission. If you are unable to contribute financially, please send an email to to receive a voucher code which will allow you to enter for free.
