About Berlin Foto Kiez
Berlin Foto Kiez is an initiative to organise photography projects with some of the most influential contemporary photographic auteurs as inspirational teachers and mentors. The projects will take place in the creatively vibrant urban-scape of East Berlin. This particular area is renowned for the spontaneous and unofficial affiliation of artists, and such a free-based community is known as a Kiez, a word particular to Berliners.
True to the spirit of Berlin the Foto Kiez endeavours to grow experientially and bring together a community of photographic artists from around the world to develop their personal visual expression and to engage in workshops, master classes, exhibitions, book production and lectures in an informal, open and yet intensive atmosphere.
