Following the successful first edition of the festival in 2014, ParisBerlin>fotogroup now presents the second edition of this bi-annual photography festival.

In 2014 the festival took place in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the renowned Mois de la Photo-OFF Paris. Back then, Paris Photographique, organizer of the Mois de la Photographie-Off Paris, and ParisBerlin>fotogroup teamed up and organized both festivals to run at the same time in Paris and Berlin.

For its second edition in 2016, Monat der Fotografie-Off Berlin presents a wide photographic variety in almost 50 exhibitions, taking place at 42 venues throughout Berlin, focusing on young european photography.
